Los Angeles Chargers are coming off three straight wins against the Falcons, Raiders, and Broncos. In the last meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs the Los Angeles Chargers would come within three points from beating the defending champs. Chargers will be looking for revenge in Week 17 of the 2020 NFL Season.

Kansas City Chiefs are most likely going to sit a lot of their offensive talent in Week 17. Los Angeles Chargers will look to capitalize on the missing pieces inthe Kansas City Chiefs offense. The Chiefs have already wrapped up everything they need when it comes to making another run at the Super Bowl.


Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs Head-to-Head

Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers will be meeting for the 122nd time in Week 17. Kansas City owns the series lead over the Chargers with a record of 64-56-1. The Chiefs are 12-1 against the Los Angeles Chargers in the last 13 meetings between the two teams.

With the Chiefs potentially sitting Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the offensive fire power, the Chargers definitely have a shot. There is the possibility of Mahomes playing the first half to make sure the Chiefs handle business but it is not likely. Los Angeles Chargers have the opportunity to beat the Chiefs for the first time since the 2018 NFL Season.
