    San Diego's defense was too much for the Cheifs to handle forcing 7 turnovers


    The San Diego Chargers ended the Qualcomm Stadium era with a victory at home vs the Kansas City Cheifs as the Bolt's defense dominated leading the Chargers to a 30-11 win. The Chargers would strike first as QB Philip Rivers somehow managed to beat double coverage in the end zone to find Eddie Royal for his first of 2 TD passes. The Chiefs came out strong on their first drive quickly racing the ball down field and forcing the Chargers into a red zone defense early but the Bolts were able to hold the Chiefs to only a FG near the end of the 1st quarter. Quarter number 2 was more of a defensive battle as both teams struggled offensively until the elusive Ryan Mathews managed to turn a 3rd down screen pass into a 71 yard TD with :42 remaining in the half and a KC turnover would turn into a 28 yard FG for Nick Novak as San Diego took a 17-3 lead at the half. Both sides continued to play great defensively in the 3rd as Chargers CB Derek Cox took one of his 2 INTs of the game 52 yards for the score giving the Bolts a 24-3 lead going into the final quarter of play. In the 4th quarter the Chiefs refused to simply give up as Alex Smith found a wide open Dwayne Bowe with a 31 yard TD pass followed by a successful 2pt conversion. The Chargers may not have come away with a victory in this game had it not been for the play of their defense. The Chiefs defense held the Chargers to 4-11 on 3rd down as well as forcing a red zone stop but on the other hand the Chargers managed to hold KC to 1-8 on 3rd downs and forced the Chiefs to turn the ball over 7 times. The win put a happy end to a horrible 4-12 season for San Diego as they look to improve their roster in the off season as well as look forward to playing in their new stadium that is scheduled for completion just in time for the 2014 pre-season.​
