Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert completed 22 of his 38 passes for 236 yards, with two passing TDs and a running score, as well as an early interception. Justin Jackson led a strong mix of Los Angeles runners, earning 86 of the team’s 192 yards on the ground.

The Chargers maintained a slim one-point lead in the final quarter, before both teams scored two touchdowns apiece, one of which saw the Chiefs add a two-point conversion to equalize the game, sending it into overtime.

The last of those rulebook scores came with just over a minute left as Mahomes and Kelce linked from seven yards. With the Chargers then unable to stage a winning strike in the final seconds, the game went overtime and Kansas eventually took the win as Mahomes and Kelce combined again in surprising style.
