    The Chiefs couldn't feel better about life. Last Thursday, they went to the practice field knowing there was a chance to jump on the plane the next day and head to Miami for a football game moved up because of Hurricane Wilma. Things couldn't have gone better. The Chiefs won the game and earned two extra days of rest and more time to prepare for this crucial AFC West game. The Chiefs turned adversity into a benefit. The Chargers, meanwhile, can't catch a break. They are already in the midst of a schedule in which they play four of five teams that had a bye week to prepare for them. Philadelphia's extra time cost them because Johnson came up with a great game plan to stop Tomlinson. He had 7 yards on 17 carries against Eagles run blitzes. The Chiefs have had extra time to study that game plan and see what they might use. For the Chargers, this game is crucial. A fifth loss could virtually kill any chances of getting a wild-card playoff berth. Easy schedules should give the Bengals and Jaguars 10 or 11 wins, and a fifth loss by the Chargers through October would make it impossible for them to catch those teams in the final two months. The Chargers just want to get to .500, try to beat the Jets next week and get to their own bye week at 5-4.</blockquote>
