Ryan Pedersen: Six is Bliss; Chargers Improve to 3-1
You sunk my Battleship!
The San Diego Chargers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs 37-20 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO yesterday. Just about the only thing cooking besides the BBQ was the Chargers Defense forcing SIX! (Chargers Defense?) Yes, Six turnovers, five of those in the first half, something the Chiefs O haven’t done in a long time (Congrats?)
The only thing that really bothered Chargers fans that day, on really a day you can’t complain about was that the Chargers kind of took the foot off the gas towards halftime. Sure there was a comfortable lead but, it’s something that fans who knock on Head Coach Norv Turner about and just fuels the fire. San Diego could’ve knocked the Chiefs out of their misery earlier in that game (Until Matt Cassel ultimately hands the ball over). You’d have to think after such a bad loss to Atlanta the week before at home, they would thrive at the chance to score on every drive.
A division win is key, 2-0 record in the AFC West for the Bolts (3-1 overall) something the last couple years the Chargers have struggled with. But don’t look ahead just yet to that mouth-watering matchup with Peyton. Chargers head into a HUGE trap game (let out your inner Admiral Ackbar “It’s a trap!”) against a starving 0-4 Aint’s team looking for some sort of break. It’s a Sunday night game where the “Who Dat” nation will be loud in the dome.. Deaumx? Even in a loss, Drew Brees still looks good.
