Now, in Mexico, they will have a tough battle against the Kansas City Chiefs that come from a hard setback, but with Patrick Mahomes back. Let’s check the teams for the game Chiefs vs Chargers of Monday Night Football for your NFL Betting.

Chiefs vs Chargers NFL 2019 Week 11

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers lost the game 24-26 against the Oakland Raiders in a divisional match. If someone played bad, it was their quarterback Philip Rivers. Rivers is the quarterback that has thrown more yards so far this year, with 2816 yards. It turns out that this is not an indication of a good season. Rivers had three interceptions – and could have been five – against the third worst NFL team by air defense. Not only that, the last interception occurred with 20 seconds on the clock when the Chargers were looking for a field goal to be able to defeat Oakland.

It is well known that Rivers is not the kind of player you can rely on important moments, but against Oakland it has been one of the worst performances to be remembered.

However, the ground game of the Chargers is a way where they can have better results. Melvin Gordon had 108 ground yards against the Raiders and Austin Ekeler is a great second choice by that route.

Faced with a ground defense as weak as that of the Chiefs, they can search success by that.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs arrived week 10 excited regarding the return of their star quarterback and MVP of the league, Patrick Mahomes. However, and despite a great performance by Mahomes (446 yards, 3 TDs), the Chiefs saw how a blocked field goal attempt left them with one more defeat in their columns, this time against the Tennessee Titans 35-32.

This is the fourth defeat of Kansas City (same amount they had last season) and again their big problem is their ground defense. It is the second worst in the NFL as exposed by the Tennessee Titans. Derrick Henry had 188 yards and two touchdowns. While Henry is talented, the reality is that the Chiefs can’t stop anyone.

Under their premise of making more points that the ones they receive, they failed against the Titans and that is a big concern. It is a very risky lifestyle for the Chiefs. They rely so much on their offensive talent that they are fragile in defense.

Having brought Steve Spagnuolo as a defensive coordinator and changing many of his defensive line personnel has not really worked.

The Chiefs are still a team with championship aspirations that can give its fans an epic game, but they have very large holes in their defensive side and the Chargers have the weapons to exploit them.

Chiefs vs Chargers Game History

NFL games in Mexico

Arizona Cardinals vs San Francisco 49ers – 2005

This was the first official NFL game in Mexico in October 2005. The Cardinals won the match 31-14 and had an NFL assistance record of 103,467 fans at Estadio Azteca. The match was broadcast by ESPN.

In this match, the 49ers started winning 14-0 with two scores produced by fumbles. However, San Francisco was unable to score again. After two field goals and a touchdown by a young Larry Fitzgerald the score was 14-12 at halftime. With four more field goals and a touchdown, Arizona sealed his win.

Oakland Raiders vs Houston Texans – 2016

It took 11 years for the NFL to return to Mexico. On this occasion, the Raiders took the W by a score of 27-20 against the Houston Texans.

In an intense match, it was Raiders quarterback Derek Carr who led the team to victory. With 295 yards, three touchdowns and one interception, the Raiders were able to take advantage. Carr did not receive a single sack in the entire match and the fullback, Jamize Ozawale had 90 yards in just three receptions and a touchdown to seal the victory.

On Houston side, the starting quarterback was Brock Osweiler, got 243 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The offensive worked through Lamar Miller, the runner had a touchdown and 104 yards on ground, it was a nightmare.

New England Patriots vs Oakland Raiders – 2017

A year later, in 2017, the Raiders returned to the Azteca, but this time they were mistreated by Patriots (33-8) who were 7-2 at the time.

Tom Brady gave quarterback lessons by throwing 30/37 full passes, 340 yards and three touchdowns without interceptions. It completely surpassed what Derek Carr did, as the Oakland quarterback threw 28/49 passes, 237 yards, an interception and a touchdown.

The Patriots overturned the Oakland offense, which had names like Marshawn Lynch, wide receivers Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper and tight end Jared Cook. Besides Amari Cooper’s touchdown, Oakland did not even have the opportunity to perform field goals.

On the other hand, the wide receiver Brandin Cooks with 149 yards and a touchdown, was the most effective receiver for Brady. At that time, Danny Amendola played for the Patriots and the wide receiver had a touchdown and 66 yards.

Los Angeles Rams vs Kansas City Chiefs – 2018

Unfortunately, in 2018 there was no game in Mexico as  the conditions of the Colossus of Santa Ursula were not suitable for playing the game. It was a total failure, since the game that was finally played in Los Angeles and ended 54-51. An epic game!.

Los Angeles Chargers vs Kansas City Chiefs – 2019

Now, in 2019, a team from Los Angeles (this time the Chargers, not the Rams) and Kansas City Chiefs will return to the Azteca. At the beginning of the season, this game looked like one of the best games of the season.

The Chargers have been disappointing and the Chiefs irregular, but there is no reason to worry. Both teams have talent, very dynamic and explosive offensives and what is certain is that we will see lots of touchdowns.
