Mahomes had completed passes to nine different teammates in the first half of the team's blowout win.Meanwhile, Brandon Staley's Chargers come off of a 24-19 road victory against the Raiders. Behind another solid outing from QB Justin Herbert, LA did just enough to keep Derek Carr and the Raiders from mounting a successful comeback in Las Vegas.Four of the last five meetings between these two AFC West rivals have gone over 52 points, so there should be plenty of fireworks.

This game certainly doesn't look like another boring Thursday Night tilt.There should be plenty of points scored and that means a ton of fantasy football ramifications. How will tonight's Chargers vs Chiefs game go?
