Chiefs vs. Chargers score: San Diego leads Kansas City 10-3

San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers has been nearly perfect and Kansas City gave up a key fumble in San Diego territory, combining to give the Chargers a 10-3 lead at halftime of their Thursday night game. The Chargers established an early lead when they took the opening kickoff on a 67-yard scoring drive, capped with a Rivers touchdown pass to Antonio Gates. Kansas City responded with a seventeen-play drive that took the Chiefs to the San Diego 33, but Dwayne Bowe fumbled the ball away and left Kansas City scoreless.

San Diego's lead extended to ten points with a Nick Novak 25-yard field goal with nine minutes left in the house. A Ryan Succop 49-yard field goal got Kansas City on the board with three minutes left in the half. San Diego was driving for another score as the half ended when Rivers threw an interception in the end zone.

Rivers completed his first fourteen pass attempts before an incompletion and interception ended the half. He has 179 yards passing with one touchdown.

Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel is 7/11 passing for 66 yards. Dwayne Bowe caught five of those seven completions for 51 receiving yards.
