The Chiefs showed their big-play defense is back in win over Chargers.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Chiefs QB Alex Smith on President Trump's statement critical of National anthem protestors: "I find that very alarming… This is the same guy who couldn't condemn violent neo-Nazis but he's condemning guys that are taking a knee during the national anthem."

Smith, Chiefs start quick, beat Chargers 24-10 to go 3-0

Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes in the first 9 1/2 minutes against what used to be his hometown team, Terrance Mitchell had two interceptions and rookie Kareem Hunt scored on a 69-yard run to seal the Kansas City Chiefs' 24-10 victory over the...

Kareem Hunt was due. He had a touchdown of 50 yards or more in each of the Chiefs first two games but hadn't had one Sunday at the 2-minute mark. He got one on a 69-yard run with 1:49 left to ice the Chiefs 24-10 win over the Chargers.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Kareem Hunt continues to rack up massive numbers in Andy Reid's offense. Hunt rushed for 172 yards today versus the Chargers (on 17 carries) and ripped off a 69 yard score on a cutback run. Legit talent.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Kareem Hunt has joined Marcus Allen (1982 Weeks 1-3) as the only players since 1950 to manage at least 25 PPR fantasy points in each of their first three NFL games.

The Chiefs didn't get the interception but credit Marcus Peters with a great play anyway. He came from the other side of the field to deflect a pass that safety Daniel Sorensen couldn't quite handle. The play was initially ruled an interception but overturned on review..

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

For the Chiefs, LB Dee Ford is questionable to return to the game because of a hip injury.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs can't feel they've used their three interceptions of Philip Rivers to full advantage. They're scored their two touchdowns and one field after those interceptions, but were ahead only a touchdown at halftime. They've allowed the Chargers more than 200 yards.

Marcus Peters is still upset during the timeout

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Coach Andy Reid and Justin Houston and Ron Parker tried to calm Marcus Peters after back to back penalties, one for defensive holding and the other for unsportsmanlike conduct after he said something to an official.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Kareem Hunt spent some time with trainer Rick Burkholder on Chiefs sideline during their latest drive. They spent most of that time talking but Hunt was also moving his right arm in a way that made it look as if it was bothering him. Hunt looks ready to go back in to the game, though.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chiefs are rotating defensive players at many spots because of the heat. Some players who rarely get a break are getting one today, including LBs Derrick Johnson, Justin Houston and Dee Ford.

Adam Teicher ESPN Staff Writer 

Philip Rivers has thrown 9 interceptions with 5 TD passes in his last 6+ games against the Chiefs. Two picks today. Chiefs won the first six.
