Chargers (10-3) at Kansas City (11-2)

TV: Ch. 11, NFL Network, 5:15 p.m. PDT.

Line: Chiefs by 3½.

Over/under: 53.


Sam Farmer’s pick: Had they not dropped a bunch of passes, the Chargers might have beaten the Chiefs in the opener. L.A. is making those catches now, and has the defensive firepower to pull this off against the hobbled Chiefs. Chargers 27, Chiefs 24
