Todd Haley’s game management had belied his status as a rookie head coach until Sunday’s game against the Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium. Some of Haley’s first-half decisions contributed to a 20-0 Chiefs deficit and, eventually, a 37-7 loss. With the Chiefs trailing 7-0 in the first quarter, Haley ordered the Chiefs to try to convert facing fourth and 1 from their 41. Matt Cassel’s quarterback sneak was stopped for no gain, and the Chargers used the short field to drive for another touchdown and a 14-0 lead.
