The Chiefs can clinch their third straight AFC West title and a first-round playoff bye with a victory over the Chargers on Thursday night.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles can forge a tie in the division and clinch its first postseason berth since 2013 with a win at Arrowhead Stadium. The matchup features the two teams with the AFC's best records.

The nationally-televised game will also show off two of the NFL's top gunslingers. The Chargers' Philip Rivers has thrown for 3,638 yards and 29 touchdowns so far this season. The 37-year-old entered the season as the 8th-leading passer in the history of the league, with more than 51,000 yards.

The Chiefs' Pat Mahomes is taking the NFL by storm in his first full year as a starter. The quarterback out of Texas Tech leads the league through the first 13 games with 4,300 yards and 43 touchdowns.

The legends of yesterday watching the stars of today with the AFC West on the line. This is what it’s all about. #LACvsKC@ChiefsReporter has your 6️⃣ Stats to Know --
