MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL 10* MAIN EVENT! (KC/LA IN MEXICO CITY!)
Kansas City vs. LA Chargers,
11/18/2019 20:15 EDT,
Score: 24 - 17
Point Spread: +4/-102 LA Chargers
I'm playing on LA. I sucessfully played against the Chiefs last week. At the time, I noted that the return of Mahomes wasn't going to fix the Chiefs' issues on defense, particularly against the run. Sure enough, that was the problem. The Titans scored 35 points and Derrick Henry (188 rush yards, 2 TDs) won me my week in Fantasy. The Chargers run the ball differently than the Titans but they too will be able to exploit the Chiefs' soft run defense. In the most recent meeting between these teams, a 29-28 win for the Chargers, LA had double as many yards on the ground, a 119-60 advantage. In fact, the Chargers also even threw for more yards in that game, while holding a solid edge in first downs and time of possession. Chargers coach Anthony Lynn played in Mexico as a player and that experience should prove helpful. Knowing what its like and with the Chargers having extra time off, due to playing on a Thursday last week, Lynn had them train in the high altitude of Colorado Springs for the week, to help prepare for the 7200 feet about sea level they'll deal with in Mexico City. Look for it to prove helpful, the Chargers coming away with AT LEAST the cover on Monday night.
