The National Football League heads down to Mexico City for a key AFC West matchup between the 6-4 Kansas City Chiefs and the 4-6 Los Angeles Chargers meet for the 119th time. Both teams are coming off Week 10 losses and find themselves in a very crowded AFC West.
Kansas City currently lead the AFC West, but have just a half game lead over the Oakland Raiders and a two game lead over the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs currently occupy the four seed in the AFC, but are just one game behind the Texans for the third seed and two games back of Baltimore for the two seed. The Chargers are currently in third place, and two games back, in the AFC West and are currently the 11th seed in the AFC. Los Angeles are two and a half games back of the second Wild Card as we enter Week 11.
Below is my best bet for the Thursday Night Football action between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns. All lines are from FanDuel Sportsbook
Kansas City Chiefs (-4) vs Los Angeles Chargers – O/U 52.5 points (-110/-110) – Game being played in Mexico
The Kansas City Chiefs got MVP QB Patrick Mahomes back Sunday, but his 446 yards, and three touchdowns, were not enough as the Tennessee Titans scored with 23 seconds left to walk away with a 35-32 win. Kansas City out gained Tennessee 530-371, but the defense could not stop the Titans from scoring most of the day. The Chiefs have now lost four of their last six games and find themselves in a heated AFC West race. Kansas City is 5-5 against the spread and the over has hit in seven of their 10 games this season.
The Los Angeles Chargers brief two game winning streak came to an end Week 10 as the Oakland Raiders walked away with a 26-24 win on Thursday Night Football. Los Angeles took the lead with four minutes to go in the game, but the Raiders drove right down the field and capped out the drive with a go ahead Josh Jacobs touchdown run. Philip Rivers looked bad all night and the Chargers could have been blown out of the building had it not been for 12 Raiders penalties that kept a lot of drives going. The Chargers are 3-6-1 against the spread and the under has hit in seven of their 10 games this season.
Series History: The Kansas City Chiefs lead the all-time series 61-56-1 after the two split the season series last season.
Game Prediction: I do not think the Chargers are good at all and will not back them against most teams on a neutral field. Back Kansas City -4 Monday night.
