Watch Kansas City Chiefs vs San Diego Chargers Online

The San Diego Chargers have a great shot at the postseason given earlier game results and face a Kansas City Chiefs squad in week 17 that already knows its playoffs fate is locked in. San Diego will leave nothing on the field when we watch Chiefs vs Chargers online free live streaming on CBS.

Kansas City (11-4) knows they are the number five seed in the AFC, the first wild card spot, regardless of the outcome of their game today. The thought is that coach Andy Reid will rest some of his starters, though history dictates that teams who rest their starters before the playoffs have roughly a 50/50 shot of winning their first game after the meaningless game before it.

Reid may want to give his starters some work today considering how poorly they played a week ago. Playing against the playoffs-bound Colts, the Chiefs were flat on both sides of the ball and lost the game 23-7. Jamaal Charles ran for a 31-yard touchdown on the Chiefs first possession of the game, but that was it as the Colts defense tightened up and the Chiefs couldn’t score the rest of the game.

Kansas City’s wild card game will be played on the road so hitting the road today offers another opportunity at a tune-up and last minute tweaks for Reid and his team. If a starter plays and gets hurt then it will be Reid taking the heat in the media for not resting his key players in an otherwise meaningless game. Watch Chargers vs Chiefs online streaming live free on CBS this afternoon to see what Reid ends up doing.

San Diego (8-7) is in a race for the final AFC wild card spot and could be eliminated from the running before their game even ends. In addition to beating the Chiefs, the Chargers need the Ravens and Dolphins to both either lose or tie to collect a postseason pass. The Ravens play the Bengals while the Dolphins take on the Jets.

Chargers running back Ryan Mathews is expected to play after missing practice this past week as he nurses his injured left ankle. In his fourth year in the NFL, Mathews has set a career high in yards with 1,111, and if he plays today, which he should, it will be the first time in his career that he started in all 16 regular season NFL football games.
