Most notable was the time of possession.  San Diego entered the game ranked third in the league, averaging 34:34 per game controlling the ball.  On Sunday, Kansas City held nearly a 2-to-1 advantage by possessing the ball for exactly 39:00 to 21:00.  Corey Liuget explained how time of possession usually goes hand-in-hand with getting wins.

Kansas City finished with a 39:00-21:00 edge in time of possession.
