Thursday night's showdown between the Los Angeles Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs has major playoff implications, and figures to be one of the best TNF matchups of the season.

The Chiefs, 11-2, can clinch a first round bye with a victory at Arrowhead Stadium tonight, while the Chargers, 10-3, can secure their playoff spot with a victory. 

Ahead of tonight's matchup, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith, Tedy Bruschi and Max Kellerman broke down some of the most interesting aspects of the AFC West clash. As seen in the video embedded below, Stephen A. was completely out of his element.  

That's just valuable insight you can't get anywhere else.

As Kellerman was quick to correct, Chiefs running back Spencer Ware has already been ruled "doubtful" for tonight's game due to shoulder and hamstring injuries. Secondly, Chargers tight end Hunter Henry has not played all season, so that's probably not a reliable option for Philip Rivers. Thirdly, linebacker Derrick Johnson isn't even on the Chiefs, or any team for that matter. Not to mention, it's the Los Angeles Chargers not the San Diego Chargers, but we'll give him a pass on that one.

Stephen A. was quick to comment on the video, saying he simply got caught up "doing a thousand things," though he won't blame you if you tell him to stay of the weeeeeeed!
