Chiefs RB Charles doubtful vs. Chargers

Will the Kansas City Chiefs avoid a slow start like they had a year ago when they host the San Diego Chargers today at 1PM ET?

San Diego Chargers linebacker Jatavis Brown (57) blocks a throw by Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith (11) during the first half of an NFL football game in Kansas City, Mo., Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016. While I like what the Bolts did in the offseason and how the starters played in the preseason, the Chiefs D (even without Justin Houston) might be a little too much for the Bolts to handle, especially in a tough KC atmosphere.

While the Chiefs have opponents that could cause some trouble including division rivals the Denver Broncos and a potential surprise team in the Oakland Raiders, other teams on the schedule should be easy for the team.

The regular season will start with Jamaal Charles being an unlikely or limited participant as he continues to rehab his right knee after a torn ACL and surgery. Those plans may be tempered against the Chargers.

The day after we wrote that Vikings such as Adrian Peterson and Stefon Diggs would be just fine with Shaun Hill at QB, Minnesota went out and traded for Sam Bradford.

Whether it's the San Diego Chargers' inability to close out games or Alex Smith's magic, something insane happened in Kansas City on Sunday. The Chiefs also have Charcandrick West and Knile Davis at running back. This would suggest that Spencer Ware is in line for a bigger role.

Carr completed 24 of 38 passes for 319 yards and a touchdown and Brees completed 28 of 42 for 423 and four touchdowns.

SOLID O-LINE: The Chargers' offensive front was a mess last season. "The energy he brings to his play, the way he runs, he does it all - on the sidelines as well".

The starting nod goes to second-year defensive end Darius Philon.

The Chargers would love to be in any playoff position. That is a talent at which Mebane excels. These chargers will create a memorabilia in the city by taking on the Kansas City Chiefs.

That's where Bosa enters the picture. The Chargers didn't score a touchdown in 15 of 16 quarters at one point.

Seahawks: CB Tharold Simon, RB Alex Collins, LB Dewey McDonald, G Rees Odhiambo, G Germain Ifedi, TE Nick Vannett, DT Garrison Smith. They went 5-1 in the division past year, but I only have them going 3-3 this season. Unless the Saints are a much better team all around than predicted, the Chiefs should get another win at home. Even with the Chargers coming off a 4-12 campaign and not winning a single AFC West contest, the signal-caller still believes in his squad.

"I think everyone knows how bad we played, " Smith said after the 33-27 overtime victory. This was an offense that was so poor in 2015 that most of the offensive staff was sacked.

The first Sunday is here, and let's look at the Fantasy implication of the game at the Arrowhead.

Chiefs cornerback Marcus Peters held a black-gloved fist aloft during the national anthem in a salute reminiscent of Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.

Start fast and it often parlays into a good season and just maybe some votes this fall for the team's new downtown stadium measure.
