Chiefs face Chargers in upcoming AFC West showdown

Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Kansas City got a breakout performance from Jamaal Charles in a 27-24 win in overtime in New Orleans in Week 3. They'll face a tough Chargers defense Sept. 30 in Kansas City.

The Kansas City Chiefs were facing a brutal 0-3 start as they entered overtime at New Orleans.

A 31-yard Ryan Succop field goal later, and the Chiefs are 1-2 with AFC West-leading San Diego (2-1) coming to Kansas City in Week 4.

The Chiefs remembered how great a healthy Jamaal Charles can be. He rushed for 233 yards, including a 91-yard touchdown in the third quarter, Kansas City's only touchdown in the game.

Scoring didn't come easily against New Orleans, but it's Kansas City's defense that will be at the forefront in their divisional showdown with the Chargers. San Diego moved up and down the field on Tennessee in a 38-10 Week 2 win, but got nearly blanked by Atlanta in a 27-3 loss in Week 3.

The Chiefs running game faces one of the league's better run defenses, as the Chargers have allowed 67 yards per game through three weeks and 17 points a game - sixth-best in the NFL.
