Hello once again to Bolts From The Blue, as another installment of Ask A Chiefs Fan gets under way. This time around things are just a little bit different than the last time the Chiefs met the Chargers. The Chiefs are coming off their biggest and most impressive win of the season, and their first ever road shutout of the Oakland Raiders, a game that saw the Chiefs pick off Raiders QB's six different times, including two that were taken back for TD's. The Chiefs have now won three in a row after a slow start to the 2011 season. The Chargers, meanwhile, are coming off a tough road loss to the Jets, a game that saw the Chargers take a first half lead, only to surrrender the lead and the game in the second half.
And so it comes to this: The Chargers with a one-game lead in the division over the Chiefs, and heading into "Terrorhead Stadium" for a MNF matchup for the second year in a row, this time on a Halloween Night. Make no mistake, the Chiefs will welcome the Chargers with open arms, especially those of Brandon Flowers, Brandon Carr and Kendrick Lewis.
Not to be outdone, Derrick Johnson will be waiting to greet any Chargers player who tries to trick him into missing a tackle. And, perhaps the Chargers will be fortunate enough to be treated to some eye-candy type catches from Dwayne Bowe. Regardless of the outcome, it's sure to be a (Jackie) Battle for first place in the AFC West. No doubt the Chargers would like to "bury" the memories of last year's game in Kansas City, so it will be interesting to see what these two teams do to "carve" out a spot at the top of the division on Halloween.
Meanwhile, any questions you have for Chiefs fans, feel free to fire away and we'll do our best, as always, to answer as soon as possible. MNF. Halloween. What a treat!
