Chiefs' Hill scores two electric touchdowns in first quarter of opener

The Kansas City Chiefs got their 2018 season started off the right way with a 38-28 win over the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday afternoon at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Tyreek Hill returned a punt 91 yards for a touchdown one minute, 57 seconds in the game and caught a 58-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes later in the first quarter.

Later in the quarter, quarterback Patrick Mahomes found Hill on a slant, which he took to the house for a 58-yard touchdown reception.

Mahomes, who moved into the starting spot after Alex Smith was traded to Washington in the offseason, was 15 of 27 for 256 yards as the Chiefs extended their winning streak over the Chargers to nine. Then in Week 1 at home against the Chiefs they looked like... the Chargers.

Rivers had a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter, a 20-yarder to Allen and 4 yards to Tyrell Williams.

The Chargers narrowed the deficit to 14-12 on 45- and 35-yard field goals by Caleb Sturgis in the first quarter and a 13-yard touchdown pass from Rivers to Austin Ekeler in the second quarter. The Chargers were successful on the game's only fourth-down conversion attempts.

Gates caught two passes for 16 yards as he began his 16th season with the Chargers. The second one, which gave the Chiefs a 31-12 lead with 48 seconds remaining in the third, came after Rivers was picked off by Ron Parker at the Chiefs 14.

Rivers completed 34 of 51 passes for 424 yards and three touchdowns.

If the Chargers are going to be able to establish any sort of home-field advantage for the 2018 season, they'll have to do it soon - their next two home games are against the Los Angeles Rams and Oakland Raiders, two teams whose fans would not have to travel far to once again take over enemy territory. "We gave them too much, and they outplayed us".

Chiefs: LB Ben Niemann suffered a hamstring injury. Sam Tevi took Barksdale's place on the offensive line.

Bosa was ruled out for the season opener against the Chiefs on Friday with an injury to his left foot. Kansas City has dropped three of its last four to the Steelers in the regular season.
