Chiefs Lead Chargers, 14-7, at Halftime

The Chiefs are out in front on Thursday Night Football

The Kansas City Chiefs are leading the Los Angeles Chargers, 14-7, as the two teams head into halftime at Arrowhead Stadium on Thursday night. 

Chiefs' quarterback Patrick Mahomes completed 12-of-19 passes for 109 yards and two touchdowns in the half, tossing a pair of first-quarter scores to provide Kansas City with an early 14-0 advantage.

Mahomes scrambled to his right and kept the play alive on the Chiefs' first score, evading would-be tacklers before firing a 5-yard dart to wide receiver Demarcus Robinson.

Kansas City was then back in the end zone a possession later, as Mahomes found rookie tailback Darrel Williams for his first touchdown as a professional.

The Chiefs held onto that lead courtesy of a productive pass-rush, which brought down Los Angeles quarterback Philip Rivers four times in the half. Defensive end Chris Jones was responsible for 2.5 of those sacks, extending his sack streak to 10-consecutive games and matching an NFL record.

The Chargers were threatening to tie the contest late in the half, marching all the way down to the Chiefs' 11-yard line, but cornerback Kendall Fuller picked off Rivers in the end zone for Kansas City's second takeaway of the game.
