This Sunday our old foe the LA Chargers play host to our Kansas City Chiefs. So we thought we would help you get in the mood for game week by rekindling some old memories regarding the rivalry between the Chargers and the Chiefs.
Chiefs record vs the Chargers
60 – 54 – 1 (52.6%)

Not a player, but this simply has to be Marty Schottenheimer. 10 wonderful years as a head coach at Arrowhead, including 9 winning seasons in a row – and then went to do the same job in San Diego and coaxed a 12-4 and a 14-2 record out of the Chargers during five offence-heavy years.
The Chiefs best game vs the Chargers
Maybe not everyone’s choice, but it’s the game that made me a Chief – 23 points each after 60 minutes, in a televised Monday night football game at Arrowhead, and then in overtime Tamarick Vanover returned punt 86 yards for a walk-off touchdown.
