When picking through the wreckage of their loss Sunday in Kansas City, the three first-quarter turnovers scream for attention. But don't overlook something which had coach Marty Schottenheimer's blood boiling.

    "We've talked about it for a couple of weeks, and we still haven't resolved it,'' Schottenheimer sternly said.

    Forget Sunday's final score of 30-27. The numbers sticking in Schottenheimer's clipboard are 18-81. As in 18 missed tackles for an additional 81 yards.</blockquote>

    Although the Chargers' top-ranked defense is the league's best, its tackling was at its worst at Arrowhead Stadium.</blockquote>
