Even though the Chiefs have played fine without Tyreek Hill, it didn’t take long for Andy Reid to get himself a shiny new receiver with incredible athletic ability. Kadarius Toney is in more demand on waiver wires than the last PS5 at Walmart will be on Black Friday. Last week, you would have thought they put a rainbow flag in his bio by his coming-out party. He handled six touches, gaining 90 yards and a touchdown, and with Mecole Hardman and JuJu Smith-Schuster possibly missing this week against the Chargers, he’s in for a big game. The addition of Toney is almost unfair for the NFL’s best offense. Patrick Mahomes has become the betting favorite for MVP, and the Chiefs have the league’s top-scoring team (30.0 points per game) in line for a seventh straight AFC West title. His 25 touchdown passes lead the league and are five more than Josh Allen’s 20 — which is tied for the third-largest lead in passing touchdowns over the past 15 seasons. Speaking of Josh Allen, we can all agree that he’s great, right? Here’s a fun stat, Patrick Mahomes has played in only two more regular season games in his career than Josh Allen has, YET, he has 5,080 more passing yards, 53 more passing TDs, 12 fewer INTs, and 307 more 1st downs. All of that in TWO more regular season games. But how will he fair against the Chargers?
Since 2001, here is a list of teams that had a winning record despite ranking 29th or worse in points allowed: this year’s Chargers and last year’s Chargers. LA is giving up the third most points of anybody in the NFL at 25.3 points per game on average. Albeit, their rushing defense is substantially worse than their passing defense, the Chiefs will likely light up LA like they are demonstrating a peaceful protest. It appears this year, the gap has been in the talent surrounding Justin Herbert versus Patrick Mahomes. The rivalry of the great quarterbacks has been fun to watch, but the Chargers’ offense flows about as gracefully as a date from the show Love on the Spectrum. Their offensive line has a lot of trouble run blocking (just ask Austin Ekeler fantasy owners), and their most dynamic playmakers are listed as questionable for this game. There’s no scenario where Justin Herbert can stay competitive in a shootout with Patrick Mahomes without at least two of the injured trio of Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Gerald Everett. The Chargers can’t run (especially against a Kansas City defense that’s top-five at defending the run), and Justin Herbert is walking into war without weapons. Vegas likes the Chiefs -5.5, and they will cover that. And Chiefs’ Moneyline? Next question. Take the Chiefs Moneyline and get your free $200 from DraftKings!
