Week 15 of the 2021 NFL season will kick off with a Thursday Night Football matchup featuring the Kansas City Chiefs (9-4) on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers (8-4).
The Chiefs lead the all-time series between these teams, 64-57-1, but the Chargers have won the past two meetings, including earlier this season in Kansas City, 30-24. The last time they faced off in California was Sept. 2020 in a game that went into overtime, but ultimately ended with a Chargers 23-20 victory.
There has been an evolving COVID situation league-wide this week, resulting in over 90 players ending up testing positive or being named a close contact. Teams like the Browns, Rams, and Washington Football Team will potentially play without over 15 of their active roster players, but this Thursday game won’t be quite that affected. The Chiefs only had four players on the COVID/reserve list — Jody Fortson, Willie Gay Jr., Josh Gordon, Chris Jones — and the Chargers only had two — Rashawn Slater, Scott Quessenberry.
