The Kansas City Chiefs host a pivotal Week 8 divisional matchup with the San Diego Chargers on Monday Night Football. The Chargers, 4-2, own the first place lead in the AFC West while the Chiefs, now back to .500 at 3-3, have a chance to force a three-way (along with the Oakland Raiders) tie between 4-3 teams for the first time since 1989.
The Chargers are favored in this game by four points but they're not the ones with the momentum. San Diego dropped a Week 7 game to the New York Jets and plenty of people are questioning Philip Rivers' so-so season. The Chiefs, meanwhile, are coming in with three straight wins after starting the season 0-3. They could become the first team since the 2000 Steelers to start 0-3 and win their next four.
I know, I know. Thirty-three points. Odd, considering Philip Rivers is playing like Marty Domres these days. (Google him, young 'uns.) I think the Chargers are so ticked off -- at the officials, at their own ineptitude, at clock management, at Norv's cowlick, at everything -- and are due for an explosion in front of the Arrowheads Monday night.
