Chiefs Defeat Chargers, 24-10, to Remain Undefeated

Posted Sep 24, 2017

Kansas City recorded three interceptions in the victory

The Kansas City Chiefs remained undefeated on Sunday afternoon, defeating the Los Angeles Chargers, 24-10, at StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

The Chiefs (3-0) turned three first-half interceptions into 17 points and held the Chargers (0-3) scoreless in the second half to notch their third win in as many weeks.

Defensive back Terrance Mitchell, who had one career interception prior to the game, picked off Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers twice and Marcus Peters added another, all in the first half.

Chiefs’ quarterback Alex Smith took advantage of the takeaways, finding wide receivers Tyreek Hill and Albert Wilson for scores.

Smith finished the afternoon by completing 16 of 21 passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns overall.

Rookie running back Kareem Hunt put the game on ice for Kansas City, running for a 69-yard touchdown in the closing minutes of the game. Hunt tallied 172 yards on the ground in the contest, becoming just the ninth player since 1950 to record 100-plus scrimmage yards in each of his first three NFL games.

The victory was Kansas City’s eighth straight on the road, and 12th straight over an AFC West opponent.

The Chiefs return to Arrowhead Stadium next week to take on the Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football.
