Staggering Chiefs fall to Chargers

Norv Turner can breathe a little easier after his San Diego Chargers rediscovered the end zone and ended a three-game losing streak.

Romeo Crennel, though, will surely feel the heat after his Kansas City Chiefs committed four more turnovers and lost their fifth straight game.

Antonio Gates caught a 14-yard yard scoring pass from Philip Rivers on the game’s opening drive to snap a streak of six straight quarters without a touchdown and the Chargers went on to a 31-13 victory over the staggering Chiefs on Thursday night.

Turner had been heavily criticized by fans after the Chargers (4-4) blew double-digit, second-half leads in losses to New Orleans and Denver, and then lost 7-6 at Cleveland on Sunday.

Rivers, who looked shaky during the losing streak, did his part by completing 18 of 20 passes — a career-best 90 percent — for 220 yards and two touchdowns, with one interception. He also threw a 13-yard TD pass to Malcom Floyd early in the fourth quarter.

The Chiefs’ four turnovers ran their NFL-high mark to a staggering 29, which have led to 104 points. The Chiefs (1-7) still haven’t led in regulation this season. Their only victory came when Ryan Succop kicked a field goal against the Saints in overtime.
