Chiefs defense collapses in 4th quarter against Chargers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Eric Berry made his long-awaited return to the field, Chris Jones piled up some more sacks to match an NFL record, and the Kansas City Chiefs' maligned defense finally looked like a dominant force for a while.

Or at least, one that wouldn't hold back their high-powered offense.

But all that was wiped away in just more than three minutes Thursday night, when Philip Rivers engineered a dramatic fourth-quarterback comeback for the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs did their part with blown assignments and penalties, and rather than clinch the AFC West title and a first-round playoff bye, they left Arrowhead Stadium with a 29-28 loss and the very real possibility of hitting the road for the postseason.
