The Chiefs dug out of a two-touchdown deficit but the Chargers staged a comeback of their own and won 30-24 Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw an interception with less than two minutes to play in the game, and the Chargers converted a fourth-and-9 play thanks to a pass interference penalty on the Chiefs.
Mahomes threw a pair of interceptions and the Chiefs lost a pair of fumbles. That negated the Chiefs’ advantage in total yards and first downs.
Here is a sample of what fans were saying on Twitter after the Chiefs, 1-2, fell to last place in the AFC West:

Short answer? Yes
Long answer? You'd have to be an absolute fool not to be. https://t.co/Wwz3mt68Jx

#chiefs defense obviously played better but no team in the NFL can turn the ball over like KC has to start the season and hope to win. They're still going to make the playoffs but Superbowl won't go through KC. If KC hopes to go to SB they'll have to do it on the road.

I just learned this is the first time we have had a losing record with Patrick Mahomes. This can’t be sitting well with a man like him. #ChiefsKingdom

The #chiefs aren’t gonna make it with the defense playing the way it is…..throw in all the INTs and other turnovers and you have a recipe for last place in the division
