John Rieger-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
San Diego got off to a fast start and never looked back, defeating the Chiefs 37-20.
San Diego took control early against the Chiefs and never looked back. Phillip Rivers lead the Chargers offense with 209 passing yards, two TD's and an interception.
After Rivers threw an early touchdown pass to Eddie Royal, the Chiefs would go on to turn the ball over on back-to-back possessions, leading to 10 points for San Diego. The Chargers took full control after leading by 17, Cassel's second half TD's would only help his statistics. Cassel would end his day with three interceptions to go along two touchdowns and 251 passing yards.
Fantasy Studs/Duds: Although the Chiefs fell, WR Dwayne Bowe had a nice fantasy day, catching seven balls for 108 yards. Jamaal Charles' 37-yard TD run helped pad his stats as he ended the day with 92 rushing yards and two total TD's.
San Diego was a two-point favorite and was easily able to cover the spread in their big win over the Chiefs. For more odds and gambling information check out
