NFL Week 14: Chiefs @ Chargers

Kansas City Chiefs @ San Diego Chargers Sun. Dec. 12th 2010 4:15pm EST

Every single season the San Diego Chargers have been known to be notoriously slow starters as they just can’t seem to get things firing on all cylinders in the first half of the NFL regular season, but even though the same thing has happened this year as they lost five of the first eight games, Philip Rivers and company have found it tough to win games against divisional opponents like the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Obviously, no team in the AFC West division has had trouble beating the Denver Broncos besides the Kansas City Chiefs, but the San Diego Chargers are 0-3 against both the Kansas City Chiefs and the Oakland Raiders this season.

With that being said, the San Diego Chargers are in danger of the longer being the dominant team with in the division as the Kansas City Chiefs lead the way with the Oakland Raiders not too far behind them.

Coming into Week 14, the Chargers will have one last chance to contend for the division title as they will be hosting the Chiefs at home in San Diego.

Usually, when the Chargers are playing on their home field at Qualcomm Stadium they are as tough to beat as any team in the league as they are 4-2 at home this season, but they are coming off a devastating loss to perhaps their most heated division rivalry against the Raiders who convincingly beat them on their home field with a 28-13 victory.

The Chargers beginning to struggle and losing to a team like the Raiders on their home field, Norv Turner’s team seems to be pretty unpredictable at this point in time as they can either come out and play like the best team in the NFL or a team in desperate need of serious changes.

As of right now, the Kansas City Chiefs will be the underdogs heading to San Diego with a point spread of -7 against them, but even though the San Diego Chargers are poised to get back on track this week against this team, I believe the Chiefs are more than capable of pulling off the upset.

The one problem that the Kansas City Chiefs will face this weekend is at the quarterback position as Matt Cassel’s playing status is up in the air after undergoing an appendectomy this past Wednesday.

Although the Kansas City Chiefs have failed to say whether or not their starting quarterback will be under center this weekend, even if he isn’t backup Brody Coyle will be willing and waiting to take the reins and lead this team to their ninth win of the season.

So in my opinion I believe the best bet in this AFC West divisional showdown will be to take the Kansas City Chiefs at +7.
