After the Buffalo Bills, the Chiefs and Chargers are the two betting favorites to win the AFC. When they last met in Week 15 of the 2021 season, the Chiefs pulled off a thrilling 34-28 overtime victory to hand the Chargers a loss that eventually kept them out of the postseason.
Kansas City looked as good as ever in its season opener last Sunday, a 44-21 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Patrick Mahomes threw five touchdown passes, and Travis Kelce had 121 receiving yards. Mahomes is 5-2 against the Chargers in his career.
The Chargers are coming off a 24-19 defeat of the Las Vegas Raiders. If Los Angeles can beat the Chiefs, they will begin their season with two victories within the AFC West and perhaps emerge as the early favorites to win the division.
Use this as your open thread to discuss the first game of Week 2.
