While the season has been a disappointment for Charger fans thus far, a victory at Arrowhead could redirect the trajectory of this season in an instant. Although the Chargers are sitting on a losing record at the moment, stealing a W from the division favorites at home would actually put them at 2-0 in their division, a notable feat for a team that hasn’t won the AFC West since 2009.
It’s going to be extremely difficult for the offense to function without their stalwart veteran center as the anchor of the line, but Keenan Allen’s impressive start of the season is sure to provide some hope to fans and the players alike. Kellen Moore would be wise to continue creatively deploying Derius Davis and playing to Quentin Johnston’s strengths rather than using him as a deep decoy.
