Chiefs record vs the Chargers

Best to play for both the Chargers and the Chiefs

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.
