After a terrible half of football by the San Diego Chargers and the refs, and a pretty bad half of football by the Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego is down by 10 points with 30 minutes of football remaining.

How bad has it been? There have been 5 turnovers, 3 by the Bolts, and just one touchdown (a deep pass to rookie Jonathan Baldwin). Philip Rivers is outpacing even himself with two interceptions in the first half, and RB Ryan Mathews coughed the ball up as well.

The Chargers have forced two fumbles, with both of them being reviewed and going San Diego's way. If they want to win the game, they're probably going to need to win the turnover battle. At this point, that means creating two more turnovers than they give up in the second half. They'll also need Philip Rivers to get into a rhythm and put some fear into the Chiefs' secondary.

The score is 13-3 Chiefs at the half. I'll be back with the post-game wrap up, hopefully with good news.
