Chargers @ Chiefs

Recommended Posts



Kansas City won its ninth straight over the Chargers in Week 1, 38-28. It's the second-longest win streak versus a single opponent in franchise history, trailing only an 11-game win streak versus the Broncos from 1964 to 1969.

The Chargers have gone 9-1 since Week 4, tied with the Texans and Saints for the best record in the NFL in that span. Their four-game road win streak is the franchise's longest since a six-game run in 2009.

The Chiefs join the Rams and Patriots as the only teams yet to lose at home this season -- all 6-0. The Super Bowl champion Eagles were the only team to start 6-0 at home last season -- three of the last four Super Bowls have involved at least one team that started 6-0 at home.

Kansas City has won 10-plus games in four straight seasons, tying the longest streak in franchise history. This will be the first ever meeting between the Chiefs and Chargers when each team had 10-plus wins. With a win, the Chiefs will extend their franchise record to three straight seasons with a division title.

Philip Rivers is on pace for a career-best passer rating of 114.5 after posting a 96.0 rating last season. That improvement of +18.5 is the largest in the NFL. Rivers holds the Chargers' single-season record at 105.5 (2013) and has already posted seven of the top-10 rated seasons in franchise history.

Patrick Mahomes' 4300 passing yards are the fourth-most through 13 games all-time behind Peyton Manning in 2013 (4522), Drew Brees in 2011 (4368) and Andrew Luck in 2014 (4305). His 43 TD passes after 13 games are also fourth-most -- Manning in 2004 (46) and 2013 (45), Tom Brady in 2007 (45).
