Chiefs vs. Chargers: What Time, TV Channel & Preview

It was a long year for the San Diego Chargers in 2015 and as they start 2016, they get their division rival in the Kansas City Chiefs who went to the playoffs last season. San Diego will be hoping for a big year out of Joey Bosa, while Kansas City will be hoping that they can build on a 2015 season that they will always remember. This is a big game for both teams strictly because every team wants to start 1-0 and also because it is a division matchup. Here is a look at the matchup.

It is a very simple winning equation for the Chargers going into the new season. Philip Rivers threw the ball a ton last season while Melvin Gordon struggled running the ball. If Gordon can show in this season opener that he is a solid and realistic option, the Chargers may be able to win much more than they did last year. If San Diego can be a playoff team, it will be up to whatever Rivers can produce with his talented offense led by Keenan Allen at wide receiver, and it is a key opener.

The Chiefs allowed Alex Smith to be a game manager and that resulted in Kansas City only averaging 203 yards a game through the air. Jamaal Charles should be ready to go for Week 1 even with his injury problems but if he can’t go, Spencer Ware will be the lead running back. Ware is fully capable of taking over for Charles for this opening week and with a great defense in Kansas City, this could be a very low-scoring game. Smith and company are in a fine position to open the new season on a positive note and where they go into Houston for a key playoff matchup.
