Running back Jamaal Charles singlehandedly carried the Chiefs offense in their 27-24 overtime win over the New Orleans Saints in Week Three. Charles tore up the Saints for 233 rushing yards, with a 91-yard touchdown included.
Kansas City was still down 24-13 after Charles' prolific run, but the defense held New Orleans scoreless in the fourth quarter and forced a safety with 5:33 remaining.
Matt Cassel led the Chiefs to three field goal drives to force overtime, and kicker Ryan Succop punched in a 31-yard attempt for the victory. Cassel went 26-for-44 for 248 yards and an interception.
San Diego did not fare nearly as well as the Chiefs in Week Three.
The Chargers strong start to the season was spoiled with a 27-3 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, who picked off quarterback Philip Rivers twice and forced two fumbles in a dominating performance.
San Diego’s offense was nonexistent and only held possession for 23:46 minutes. Rivers went 21-for-38 for 173 yards and a 45.2 rating, and receiver Malcolm Floyd had three receptions for 52 yards.
Making his return from a broken collar bone, running back Ryan Matthews had 10 carries for a team-high 44 yards, but also lost a fumble on the Atlanta four-yard line in the second quarter and the Chargers never recovered.
A positive for the Chargers is their fourth-best rushing defense, which allows only 67.3 yards on the ground, and could neutralize the Chiefs' main weapon in Charles.
Betting Odds: San Diego is favored by 1 point; Over/Under: 45 points
Prediction: Despite their atrocious play in Week Three, the Chargers should return to winning form. Rivers will have a much easier time against a banged-up Chiefs' secondary, and Matthews should have his legs back in his second game of the season.
Predicted Score: San Diego 21, Kansas City 17
