NFL FREE PICK: Take the Chiefs. The Falcons exposed some of San Diego’s weaknesses on offense last week. The Chargers’ run blocking has been bad and the pass protection hasn’t been that much better for Philip Rivers. This has led to an inconsistent passing game, which is Norv Turner’s forte. Defensively, the run defense and pass rush has been okay for San Diego but the pass coverage has been spotty. Look for the Chiefs, who are coming off a big win against the Saints last Sunday, to move the ball with Jamaal Charles and wear down San Diego’s defense in the second half. According to latest NFL trends, the home team is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams and the Chargers are just 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 trips to Kansas City, which has always been a tough environment to play in.
