The best the Chiefs can hope for in 2004 is to break even after losing to the Chargers 34-31 at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday afternoon—the loss dropped the Chiefs to 3-8 on the season. Kansas City certainly had its chances, but let them slip through their fingers—literally. With the Chiefs leading 17-14 at the half, Dante Hall took the opening kickoff of the second half 77-yards before fumbling at the Charger five yard line. San Diego recovered and prevented the Chiefs from extending the lead. Hall made good on the fumble by returning another kick 96 yards for a touchdown, but Kansas City’s defense failed them again. The Chargers were able to rack up 17 points in the final quarter, which included a 43-yard field goal from Nate Kaeding with 2:24 to go. Kaeding redeemed himself after missing two previous attempts. The field goal was set up by former Chief Donnie Edwards who picked off a Trent Green pass. The Chiefs were able to contain LaDanian Tomlinson to just 57 yards rushing, but quarterback Drew ripped up the secondary for 378 yards, two touchdowns and he had no interceptions.
