Place kicker Josh Lambo: The undrafted rookie drilled his second field goal from over 50 yards this season, this one from 52 yards to give the Chargers the team’s only points of the game. Lambo is 18-of-20 on field goals this season, with a long of 54 yards. He also finished with both kickoffs for touchbacks.
Linebacker Manti Te'o: After missing four games with an ankle injury, the Notre Dame product returned to the field, finishing with five combined tackles and a sack.
Quarterback Philip Rivers: The veteran signal-caller threw his fourth interception returned for a touchdown this season when Justin Houston stepped in front of a screen pass and returned it 17 yards for a score. Rivers finished 19-of-30 for a season-low 178 passing yards. However, Rivers did eclipse Dan Fouts’ franchise record for completions (3,297), and now holds the team record with 3,313 completed passes.
Left tackle King Dunlap: In his first game back after missing a game with an ankle issue, Dunlap gave up two sacks to Tamba Hali and was flagged for a holding call. Dunlap later left the game because he re-injured his ankle.
Chargers' defense: San Diego allowed at least 22 points for the 11th time this season. The Chiefs rolled up 153 rushing yards, as the Chargers once again had trouble stopping the run.
