KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs are riding a modest three-game winning streak and have designs on winning a whole bunch more.

Kansas City is coming off a 28-0 win at Oakland on Sunday, the first time in the 52-year history of the series the Chiefs shut out the Raiders on the road.

Now, the Chiefs are preparing for a Monday night showdown against San Diego at Arrowhead Stadium with first place in the AFC West on the line. If the Chiefs win, they'll be tied with the Chargers and Raiders, with a game in hand over Oakland and a split with San Diego.

After a miserable start to the season, things are suddenly looking rosy for Kansas City.
