Patrick Mahomes makes Chargers revelation as Chiefs prepare for AFC West showdown

"We knew it had been a couple years and we wanted to go into this game and change that and we did". They quickly got the ball back from Patrick Mahomes and the NFL's highest-scoring offense, and Rivers led a tense final drive that included a fourth-down dart to Travis Benjamin and that crucial penalty on Kendall Fuller in the back of the end zone. It looked like it was straight out of the playbook of Odell Beckham Jr and DeAndre Hopkins.

And they're still playing the Chargers.

Tyrell Williams and second-year receiver Mike Williams helped with the load and Justin Jackson led the team on the ground.

Though it was an incredible effort by Allen but the Chargers have said his return is questionable.

Maybe Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn made some great adjustments, maybe it was Sutton using up all of Berry's limited snaps in the first half. He finished 24-of-34 passing for 243 yards with two touchdowns and no picks.

But Rivers also has struggled against the Chiefs, throwing 14 interceptions during the Chargers' nine-game losing streak.

The Chiefs will also be missing their top running back in Spencer Ware, who is inactive with multiple injuries. But even with a loss, the Chiefs would hold the tiebreaker over the Chargers by virtue of their better division record.

"We didn't come here to tie".

Mahomes and Co. took advantage of their early momentum.

The Chiefs, however, elected to pull back on Berry and he watched from the sidelines in the second half while the Chargers roared back from a 14-point deficit in the fourth quarter.

There have been signs this week that Chiefs safety Eric Berry will make his season debut against the Chargers.

Mike Williams hauled in a touchdown pass with 4 seconds to go.

With that experience behind him, Chargers left tackle Russell Okung said the start of Williams' heroics began during training camp with daily study sessions and drills with new receivers coach Phil McGeoghan.

Chargers: Return home for a prime-time game against the Ravens on December 22. They're done. So we've got to do better. How are the Chiefs supposed to host playoff games when literally 76,000 fans are frothing at the mouth eager to assault opposing players?
