Week 10 result: Lost 16-22 at San Francisco 49ers on SNF
Week 11 opponent: vs. Kansas City Chiefs (7-2) on SNF
L.A. played the 49ers close but ultimately couldn’t overcome all of the injuries it has faced this season. The Chargers were missing receivers Keenan Allen and Mike Williams and starting right tackle Trey Pipkins, plus all the players they have on injured reserve like linebacker Joey Bosa.
Now two games behind plus a loss against K.C., the Chargers pretty much have to beat the Chiefs next week if they have any hopes of winning the AFC West. A loss would put L.A. at .500, which would make it tough for the team to even fight for a wild-card playoff spot. It’s a must-win for the Chargers.
