The Chargers lead 21-3 at halftime against the Chiefs. Here are three things that went right:
WHAT WENT RIGHT:
- Third Downs - The Bolts went 6-of-7 on third down, with their lone failure to convert coming with 1:04 remaining in the half. Meanwhile, the defense was equally stout, limiting Kansas City to just 1-of-6 efficiency on the money down.
- Balance on Offense - San Diego kept the Chiefs guessing all quarter, running the rock 13 times while letting Rivers let it fly with 15 attempts.
- Melvin Gordon- Not only did Gordon score his first NFL touchdown, he found paydirt twice. He became the first Charger running back with two TDs in the first half of the season opener since Gene Foster in 1965.
