Chiefs Fall to 1-7 With Thursday Night Loss

Posted by willp on November 1, 2012

The Kansas City Chiefs still have not led in a game, and dropped their Thursday night matchup with the San Diego Chargers 31-13.

Philip Rivers went 18-for-20 for 220 yards and two touchdowns, with his only blemish coming on an interception at the end of the first half.

San Diego led by only seven at half as a result, but came up big with two fourth quarter defensive touchdowns in a span of two minutes. Matt Cassel was stripped in the end zone resulting in a score, and threw a pick after Dexter McCluster tipped a pass in the air for an interception return for Demorrio Williams.

Kansas City drops to 1-7, becoming the first team to not have a regulation lead through eight games since 1940. The Chiefs will play their second consecutive prime-time game on November 12th, a Monday-nighter in Pittsburgh.
