It was Thursday, and there are rules about this kind of thing. Questions about what happened the previous weekend don’t need answers — there’s no time for that, Chargers coach Anthony Lynn said. His eyes have to point forward, not back. “I’ve forgotten about that game,” he said. “My focus is on the New York Jets right now. It’s the New York Jets.” Lynn wasn’t about to talk about one drive lost in the Chargers’ avalanche of interceptions, fumbles and penalties in a Saturday night loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He didn’t want to relive a 12-play, more than seven-minute drive that could signal trouble for the Chargers against the Jets on Sunday. But since he won’t … With the Chargers leading 13-10 in the third quarter, the Chiefs marched down the field aided by penalties and missed tackles, and used rookie running back Kareem Hunt to bulldoze through the defense. Hunt rushed six times for 41 yards on the drive before catching a three-yard touchdown pass to put the Chiefs ahead for good. It was the most successful a team has looked running the ball against the Chargers since much earlier in the season — and like much earlier in the season, linebacker Denzel Perryman wasn’t on the field when it happened.
