Kansas City Vs. San Diego: Phillip Rivers Haunted By Chiefs Secondary, Throws 2nd INT, Chiefs lead 10-0

Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers seems cursed by man coverage, and it’s burying his chances at hitting the deep pass. Chiefs defensive back Derrick Johnson intercepted a deflected pass from Rivers, now 2/8 passing for 25 yard with a pair of picks.

Kansas City capitalized shortly thereafter, as Jon Baldwin took a monstrous 39-yard pass from Matt Cassel to put the Chiefs ahead 10-0. Cassel has throw for four times as many yards as Rivers in the first quarter, and Baldwin has terrified the Chargers early with 66 yards receiving.
