The Kansas City Chiefs are not looking too good at the half as the Chargers lead 14-3. While the game is at home, it seems as if nothing can help the Chiefs.
A few things are not going in the Chiefs favor thus far against the Chargers. Of course, in this beautiful game of football, not everything always will be in your favor.
The Chiefs were able to drive the ball down the field just before the half making some momentum for when they receive the ball in the second half.
If we are being honest, the Chiefs have come back from much worse than this. However, these things are killing the team dramatically.
Chiefs having trouble against Chargers in first-half
While the Chiefs did end up putting points on the board before the clock expired, it was just a field goal. Against a team like the Chargers, you cannot afford to leave anything on the board. The Chiefs need to get back to their scoring ways if they want to get back in this game.
To start, the team keeps turning the ball over as if they are giving it to the opponent. The first instance started by the team was an interception by Patrick Mahomes which really was not his fault. The receiver tipped the ball into the end zone, and the defensive back made a great catch.
The second instance happened to be on the Chiefs best receiver when Tyreek Hill made a bad play himself. On a catch, Hill was approached by a defensive back who then forced a fumble. This allowed the Chargers to have a great field position to start their drive.
Something we saw just last week was a fumble that really costed the game for Kansas City, and now it is happening all over again with Clyde Edwards-Helaire. He fumbled once again, giving the ball back to the Chargers.
If the Chiefs want to get back in this game, they need to start taking care of the ball.
