Chiefs defense collapses in 4th quarter against Chargers

That's what it appeared the Chiefs had locked up - and a division title - when they led by 14 points three different times against a team they had beaten nine straight times coming in.

With their win on Thursday Night Football over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Los Angeles Chargers stated, loudly, their case as a Super Bowl contender.

With Philip Rivers' favorite target Keenan Allen battling injuries, it was Mike Williams' time to shine. The wideout caught two TD passes, ran for another score and grabbed the game-winning, two-point conversion in the 29-28 victory. He went off for 169 yards and two touchdowns in the season opener against LA and will be a must-start.

What's more, Reid has essentially been a kid at Christmastime with the Chiefs' talent on offense.

After trailing the entire way, and still facing a 28-14 hole with 3:49 to go, Rivers led his team on a drive that fill-in running back Justin Jackson capped with a touchdown.

Williams hauled in the conversion to end five years' worth of frustration. Williams scored the second and third rushing TDs of his career, and he tallied 123 yards from scrimmage. [Allen] wanted to play in this game.

The Chiefs also sacked Rivers twice the last time these two times played in prime time, a 30-13 Kansas City win as 1-point home chalk in Week 15 of last season. "So, when you have a bunch of dudes doing that, you're going to win games". With as much success as the offense has had, it is understandable they might have become complacent.

Williams was central to the Chargers' win, scoring three touchdowns before he was left wide open at the last, and the wide receiver similarly lauded his team-mates' spirit.
