The Chargers improved to 3-1 on the season with a 37-20 win over the rival Chiefs.

A week after losing their first game of the season, the San Diego Chargers got back in the win column on Sunday with a 37-20 win against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chargers won despite being outgained by 60 yards and having Phillip Rivers throw for just 209 yards. As John Gennaro of Bolts From The Blue pointed out, turnovers were a big reason why San Diego was able to come away with the 17-point victory.

The story of the game was turnovers. John Pagano's defense and the Kansas City Chiefs offense combined to turn the ball over to the Chargers offense 5 times in the first half and 6 times overall. Matt Cassel, true to form, completed less than 60% of his passes and threw 3 interceptions against 2 touchdown passes. Once the Chargers built a lead, Pagano turned up the heat and blitzed to make Cassel less comfortable.

It may not have been pretty, but San Diego was able to go on the road and come out with a win and now the Chargers are alone atop the AFC West.
