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

    ST. PETERSBURG — Blake Snell delivered the best outing of his young career and the Rays offense continued its home run-hitting ways for a 3-0 victory Sunday against the Mariners in front of 13,354 at Tropicana Field.

  3. Rowdies settle for draw at home

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

  4. Bats come to life, but Rays' freefall continues (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
