Chargers offense sputters in loss to Chiefs
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Chargers failed to score a touchdown for the second straight week, losing 10-3 to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Despite totaling just 280 yards of offense — 100 yards below their season average — the Chargers had a change to tie the score on final play of the game. But Danny Woodhead dropped a pass in the endzone, and the Chargers fell to 3-10 on the year. Meanwhile the Chiefs (8-5) won their seventh game in a row to maintain their playoff spot.
Philip Rivers started his 157th straight game for the Chargers but completed just 24 of his 43 pass attempts for 263 yards and an interception.
Throughout the offensive struggles, the Chargers defense put together another solid performance. They sacked Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith twice to go with a fumble recovery and a Jason Verrett interception.
Next up the Bolts host the Miami Dolphins (5-7) at Qualcomm Stadium. It will be their final home game of the season.
