The story so far

The Chiefs continued there march to the Number 1 seed in the AFC with a hard thought win over the ravens in week 14. A no look Mahomes throw along with a 4th and 9 conversion to a limping Tyreek Hill were just 2 moments from Sunday’s game that saw us to the win and clinch a play off spot.

The chargers have only lost 1 in there last 10 games and have a record of 10-3 coming in to this game.

A Chiefs win and we take the division and home field advantage in the play offs, a chargers win and that number 1 seed and the division will go down to the wire.

One to watch 

Patrick Mahomes to see what audacious play he pulls of this week. This man is the gift that keeps on giving and all eyes are on him at the moment around the NFL.

He has had everyone talking about him all week with his no look throw to Demarcus Robinson, which in my opinion will never be done again ( other than by the man himself)

Also Eric Berry is back!!!!

Key matchup

Patrick Mahomes v Joey Bosa

Bosa has 4 sacks to his name this season but he will be wanting to keep Mahomes quiet on Thursday night. He and Melvin Ingram will be gunning for Mahomes from the start.

What they said 

“I think our guys have to be in tune for (big plays),” Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said. “Because every play you have to be ready because it could be the one.”

What we said 

“The Chargers are a good team – a team that’s on a hot streak right now – and you’re basically playing for the AFC West title,” Mahomes said. “You have to go out there and try to get yourself ready to go – physically and mentally – to win a football game”

Odds

Chiefs 8/15

Chargers 6/4

My pick

Travis Kelce 7/1 first touchdown
