[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs have many frustrating thoughts to ponder from Sunday’s 28-20 loss to the Chargers, but none dug deeper than this: They left a lot of points on the field in what turned out to be a close game.
In the third quarter, the Chiefs had a first down at the San Diego 11 but came away with no points after Trent Green fumbled.
In the fourth, the Chiefs had a first down at the 10 but settled for a field goal. Later, they had a second down at the 3 but eventually came up empty after losing the ball on downs.
“We lost by eight,” fullback Tony Richardson said. “We were down there two or three times. If we could have converted one or two of those, it would have been a lot different situation.”
The second-half red-zone problems were even more puzzling because the Chiefs moved the ball so well otherwise. They had 306 yards after halftime.
