Rivers leads Chargers to last-second comeback win over KC

Rivers leads Chargers to last-second comeback win over KC

Thank you for joining us. It looked like it was straight out of the playbook of Odell Beckham Jr and DeAndre Hopkins.

And when the Chargers' own defense took the field, they did their job by quickly getting the ball back.

On the very next play, Rivers threw to Williams again, with the receiver pulling it in this time. And when it was confirmed by video review, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn sent his team out for a 2-point conversion and the win.

The Chargers need a win to clinch their first playoff berth since 2013 and they'd tie the Chiefs for first place in the AFC West.

Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes passed for 243 yards, going 24 of 34 with two touchdowns.

The Arizona Cardinals got to him on a season-high four occasions in an otherwise impressive 45-10 Chargers win three weeks ago, in which Rivers set a record with 25 consecutive pass completions.

It could be that Sutton no longer has the benefit of relying on the Chiefs offense to bail him out.

Seeing the fiasco that was Mexico city this past year when the Rams were supposed to "host" the Chiefs, hopefully the Chargers are spared from having to go there.

"We have a lot to prepare for", Lynn said, "and like I said, it's going to be more of a mental week".

Berry was a limited participant in practice all week prior to the Ravens game, and was ultimately listed as "Questionable" before kickoff.

The reaction from former National Football League player Tedy Bruschi and First Take co-host Max Kellerman were priceless.

The circumstances appeared grim when the Chiefs moved ahead 28-14 with a 13-play, 75-yard drive that extended into the middle of the fourth quarter and ate up 7:55 of clock time.

In addition to tuning into one of the two TV channels broadcasting the game, there are multiple streaming options including Amazon that can be taken advantage of.

Then, in the first half, they lost their top receiver, Keenan Allen, to a hip problem.

Mike Williams continued to pick up the slack the rest of the game. For most of the game, they were the better team. His name was unveiled next to that of WR Carlos Carson on the ring of honour inside Arrowhead Stadium. This marked the first time Hill has failed to score against the Chargers in six career games. Close game, but the Chiefs pull it out.

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