The good news for Chiefs fans is that 2018 NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes returned at quarterback last week at Tennessee. The bad news is that the Kansas City defense has yet to prove it can be relied upon to hold leads and play at a championship level. Kansas City suffered a bad loss with the NFL Odds to the Titans because Steve Spagnuolo’s defense couldn’t apply the dagger to one of one of the worst offenses in the NFL. The Chargers have taken a big step back so far this season after being the near equal to KC in 2018. Offense is the culprit in the decline of Los Angeles. Mexico City will host the Chiefs and Chargers on Monday Night Football.
