Chargers Blow Huge Lead; Fall to Chiefs in OT 33-27

San Diego Chargers v Kansas City Chiefs

Alex Smith squirmed out of the pile in the end zone, got to his feet and let out a roar.

All it took was the largest comeback in the 56-year history of the Kansas City Chiefs for the stoic quarterback with the California cool to finally let some emotion show.

Smith threw for 363 yards and two touchdowns to rally his team from a three-touchdown hole, then scored on third-and-goal on the first possession of overtime for a heart-stopping 33-27 victory over the San Diego Chargers in their season opener Sunday.

“Lot of emotion at the end of the game,” Smith said with a smile.

The Chiefs trailed 24-3 in the second half before mounting their charge, and it really kicked into gear when Smith hit Jeremy Maclin with a back-shoulder fade to get within 27-17 with 9 minutes to go.

    Looks like another typical Charger season is upon us. They always seem to play just well enough to lose. You just can’t let a 17-point lead evaporate. What’s going on here. Where’s the mind set. Not exactly the way you want to start the season. You’d don’t work that hard to build a commanding lead and then proceed to cough it up. In sixteen weeks they may be looking back at this game as the one that cost them a shot at the playoffs. We’ll see what they’re made of. Will they bounce back or just go through the motions?
