Thursday Night Football: Chiefs at Chargers (7:20 CT) — Lineups, Broadcast Info, Game Thread

Chicago Bears

Patrick Mahomes and the first-place Kansas City Chiefs visit Justin Herbert and the second-place Los Angeles Chargers in a massive AFC West battle with playoff seeding implications tonight under the lights in SoCal.

What a way to start Week 15, right?

Mahomes and Herbert are fourth and fifth, respectively, in passing yardage in the NFL and have thrown for a combined 7,464 yards and 57 touchdowns this season. This one has all the makings of a heck of a lid-lifter for Week 15 of the NFL season, a primetime battle of two incredible quarterbacks battling for an AFC West title and playoff seeding on Thursday Night Football. I’m ready for this to start now.
