A late strike in the first half from Antonio Gates puts the San Diego Chargers 14-10 ahead against the Kansas City Chiefs at the break.

The San Diego Chargers hold a narrow 14-10 lead over the Kansas City Chiefs at the break in their NFL clash.

The Chargers took the lead in the game towards the end of the first quarter after both sides had failed to score on their first possessions.

Philip Rivers moved his team to the goalline before faking a handoff to Branden Oliver and hitting tight end John Phillips in the endzone.

Kansas City hit straight back with a good drive which culminated in Jamaal Charles finding the endzone with an incredible run, as he ran to the right and managed to find a crease to cut back and cross the goal line for the 16-yard score.

The Chiefs took the lead when the Chargers committed a big roughing the passer penalty to allow the visitors into the redzone. However, the home side's defense stepped up and held Andy Reid's men to a field goal from the boot of Cairo Santos.

The home side drove downfield just before the break and managed to retake the lead when Rivers evaded the rush to fire deep in the endzone, and Antonio Gates made the catch for the 27-yard touchdown.
