NFL capsule: Kansas City Chiefs at San Diego Chargers, 8:20 p.m. Thursday

Tonight

Chiefs (1-6) at Chargers (3-4)

When/where: 8:20; Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego

TV/radio: NFL Network; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Line/OU: Chargers by 8; 42½

The Chargers look lost right now. They've lost four of five and three straight, including 7-6 on Sunday at Cleveland. We'd like to think San Diego has enough talent to win a home game against the Chiefs in a short week. Philip Rivers needs to complete a higher percentage of his passes, and the Chargers defense will have to find a way to slow running back Jamaal Charles. But this is not a game they should lose. The Chargers have won five straight home games against the Chiefs.

Stephen F. Holder's pick: Chargers 24, Chiefs 18
