Vegas oddsmakers must've been impressed with Kansas City's blowout win.
They might expect a similar outcome this weekend. According to ESPN.com's Dave Tuley, the Chiefs are now 3.5-point favorites over the rival Chargers on Sunday at Qualcomm Stadium.
It means they'd be near-touchdown favorites if the game were held at Arrowhead Stadium. Even so, the line has jumped a full point since K.C.'s dominant Week 10 performance in Denver.
They've got recent history on their side, too. The Chargers lost both meetings last season, including a 23-20 loss at Qualcomm that kicked them out of playoff contention.
They're far removed from that race in 2015. But the Chiefs aren't -- and they need a win to remain relevant.
