The Kansas City Chiefs will travel to San Diego this weekend to take on the Chargers in what is the biggest game of the year in the AFC West. A Chiefs victory eliminates the Chargers from winning the division and all but eliminates them from wildcard consideration.
The problem? Matt Cassel's appendectomy. It looks like that will likely put him out this weekend against the Chargers but the Chiefs are still holding out the small hope that he can play.
Peter King of SI.com is picking the Chargers -- 24-17 -- but does bring up a good point about Brodie Croyle, who is expected to replace Cassel.
