Los Angeles Chargers vs Kansas City Chiefs

Los Angeles Chargers 

The Chargers look to earn a second straight win this season after beating the Las Vegas Raiders 24-19 in their first game. But a huge injury blow came from WR Keenan Allen, who suffered a hamstring injury, leaving the Chargers with DeAndre Carter to replace him. That went well for the Chargers in Week 1, as Carter reeled in a touchdown pass from Justin Herbert.

In this game, the pass rush of the Chargers is going to be very important. They sacked Derek Carr six times last week, and may need a similar performance against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs 

The Chiefs are the favorite to win this game. However, their 44-21 win over the Cardinals was not completely painless. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has a wrist issue, but he will play against the Chargers.

In Kansas City's last game, Mahomes showed he could do many things without Tyreek Hill, who moved to the Miami Dolphins. The 26-year-old QB had 30 completions on 39 attempts for 360 yards and five touchdown passes.

However, OL Trey Smith hurt his ankle and Trent McDuffie strained his hamstring. These two will be off the list of available players to play against the Chargers this weekend.
