NFL Week 15: Thursday Night Football Chargers vs. Chiefs

This Thursday night features a high-stakes AFC West clash that could determine the playoff picture in the AFC. The Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs are both likely going to make the playoffs, but the winner of this matchup could find themselves having home field advantage and even a first-round bye. And with this being a matchup of two rivals that haven’t always gotten along in the past, this will be a fun game to watch and to bet on, especially since both teams have a strong case when it comes to making a wager.

The Los Angeles Chargers have all but locked up a spot in the postseason and can catch the Chiefs with a win. The Chargers are riding a three-game winning streak and have won nine of their last 10 games, thanks to an offense that’s been averaging 28.2 points, though running back Melvin Gordon’s injury status is the biggest question mark heading into the game. San Diego has won the last two games without Gordon, who was limited in practice on Tuesday with a knee injury, but the electrifying back would be a dangerous weapon out of the Chargers’ backfield. The Chargers have also been solid on defense, holding opponents to 20.8 points per game.

The Chiefs have already clinched a playoff berth and will now hope to lock up both the division and the top seed in the conference. Much of their success has been thanks to their high-flying offense led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes and his 4,300 yards and 43 touchdowns on the season, averaging 36.2 points per game. The Chiefs’ offense could be missing several key pieces though for Thursday’s matchup, with starting running back Spencer Ware, wide receivers Sammy Watkins and Tyreek Hill, and guard Cameron Erving, all listed as questionable for the game. The defense, which has allowed 27.0 points per game this season, could also be missing star safety Eric Berry, who was limited in practice on Tuesday with a heel injury.

The Chiefs lead the all-time series 61-55-1. Of the 117 meetings, the Chargers and the Chiefs have only met once in the playoffs, but given the success of both teams this season, a second meeting in the postseason this year is not outside the realm of possibility. The Chiefs have seemed to have the Chargers’ number in recent years, having won the last nine meetings dating back to 2014, including a 38-28 victory over their rivals in the season opener. But with both teams finding their groove and some injuries that could make a big difference, this game could really go either way.
