The Los Angeles Chargers have had some intense recent battles against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Last season, both of their games were decided by six points, with each team getting a victory.
Their Week 2 game this season was no different as the Chiefs edged the Chargers, 27-24.
Several Chargers players delivered great performances despite the loss.
Herbert finished with 33 completions for 334 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception.
Meanwhile, Austin Ekeler had 94 yards from scrimmage.
Mike Williams had eight catches for 113 yards and a touchdown.
But even if the Chargers have several playmakers on their roster, they couldn’t seal the deal versus Kansas City.
This game sums up my general thoughts on the Chargers. They always leave you wanting more. Like you can see all the parts are there. But they just don’t make it happen enough.

Sirius XM host and FOX Sports analyst Geoff Schwartz tweeted, “This game sums up my general thoughts on the Chargers. They always leave you wanting more. Like you can see all the parts are there. But they just don’t make it happen enough.”
Schwartz’s point was evident in 2021 when they had a 4-2 record before their bye week.
After that, they went 5-6 and needed a tie with the Las Vegas Raiders to reach the playoffs.
Consistency is what they will aim for as the 2022 season progresses.
The Chargers Have A Long Way To Go
Luckily for them, they still have 15 games left to maximize their star-studded roster.
They were able to do so in Week 1 against the Raiders, especially when their defense had six sacks and 355 total yards on offense.
More importantly, they did not give up the ball against Las Vegas.
The Chargers hope that Keenan Allen will be back in Week 3 when they face the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Having a full roster will help them bounce back.
