  • Predictions for Chiefs vs. Chargers, Week 15

CASEY HAYWARD is listed as questionable for the Chargers with a calf problem. If and when that happens, the Chargers cornerback might pay homage to one of his opponents. This is not year two of a rebuild, this is not a year where eight wins gets a parade. From Week 1-10, Rivers was awful on passes thrown 20 yards or more beyond the line of scrimmage.

Will the Los Angeles Chargers stay hot and take down the Kansas City Chiefs tonight at 8:25 p.m. ET in a pivotal AFC West matchup?

"This is about as big as it gets for a regular-season game", Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith said.

The Chargers (7-6) certainly fit in that category. Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram are one of the league's best sack duos in the NFL, with their combined 20.5 bettered only by Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue in Jacksonville (23.5).

Roots of Great Red Spot of Jupiter revealed by Juno
The Juno probe has conducted eight scientific flybys over Jupiter, dipping its trajectory across the gas giant's upper atmosphere. On Monday, scientists said that Juno had discovered a new area of radiation just above the planet's atmosphere at the equator.

They'll likely face another stiff test against the Chiefs.

In heading to Kansas City for this all-important meeting, the Chargers know that even if they come away with a loss, they are still alive in the division. It is going to force us to be disciplined in what we do - but not robotic. "There's always a concern, but we're hopeful he can play". Or will they somehow let all of us fans down like seasons' past?

Bradley has long made it a priority to help his players play fast, running a no-frills scheme that relies more on execution than exotic wrinkles. Earlier this season against the Chargers, Hunt had a career-high game with 172 yards and a touchdown on the ground. There aren't that many good teams in the conference. A win by either team in this game would mean sole ownership of first place in the AFC West and important tiebreakers that will matter greatly down the stretch.

Defensive ends Isaac Rochell and Jerry Attaochu are inactive for the Chargers, along with wide receiver Geremy Davis, cornerback Craig Mager, offensive lineman Michael Ola, tight end Sean Culkin and third-string quarterback Cardale Jones. Kansas have been so up and down in recent weeks that it is impossible to have any confidence in them against a team as in-form as the Chargers are. A 0-4 start justified that popular thought. Philip Rivers and the Chargers have won four in a row; the Chiefs broke their four-game losing streak in Week 14 by defeating the Raiders.

OnePlus finally launched its special Star Wars Limited Edition OnePlus 5T in India on Thursday at a price of Rs 38,999. The device will be available in only one variant for now and this is the one having 8GB RAM and 128GB of storage.

It might not be enough. If the Chiefs want to pound the ball inside and control the clock in order to keep the red-hot Charger offense off the field, that would be a wise strategy. He does have one year left on his contract, but he also has a 13-32 record and his.289 winning percentage is barely better than Abe Gibron's franchise-worst.274 from 1972-74.

That defensive growth also led to a domino effect for the offense.

"No surprises at all", first-year Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. However, if there was any team we should have seen as ready to rebound up the standings, it was this one. "We expected to be here in December, playing meaningful football".

On Saturday night, Kansas City should too.
