Facing a 1st-and-10 from their own 22 in the second quarter, the Bolts were driving but Chad Rinehart was called for offensive holding which backed the Chargers up an additional 10-yards.  Two plays later, Philip Rivers was sacked for a loss of six and facing a 3rd-and-26, the Chargers only gained six and punted.  Kansas City kicked a field goal on the ensuing drive making it 13-7 in favor of the Chiefs.
