Sunday Night Football: Travis Kelce’s second touchdown gives Chiefs 23-20 lead

The Chargers came up short last week on SNF, and Mike Florio and Chris Simms aren’t convinced Justin Herbert will be able to shine brighter than Patrick Mahomes in primetime this week, either.

The Chiefs have taken the lead again in Los Angeles.

Tight end Travis Kelce’s second touchdown gave Kansas City a 23-20 lead over the Chargers early in the fourth quarter.

The play opened the final period on third-and-4. Kelce went over the middle and caught the pass in a tight window, then bulldozed his way down the sideline for the score.

Kelce now has 98 yards on five receptions with a pair of touchdowns.

The Chiefs were down 20-13 at halftime but came out running to start the second half. Kansas City had eight runs and no passes on its first possession in the third quarter, which led to a 30-yard field goal by Harrison Butker. The Chiefs were stuffed on a third-and-1 run play, which led them to settle for three points.

Already thin at receiver, the Chiefs are down one more. Kadarius Toney has been downgraded to out with a hamstring injury.

Chargers linebacker Kenneth Murray had to exit the game early in the third quarter and has been announced as questionable to return with a neck injury.
