MEXICO CITY (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have regained a half-game lead in the AFC West by winning in Mexico City.

Daniel Sorenson picked off Philip Rivers at the goal line with 18 seconds remaining to preserve the Chiefs’ 24-17 victory over the Chargers. Mike Williams made a spectacular 50-yard catch with 44 seconds to play and Los Angeles got to the Kansas City 14 before Rivers tossed his fourth interception of the night.

Patrick Mahomes (mah-HOHMZ’) passed for 182 yards and hit Travis Kelce (KEHL’-see) for his only touchdown. LeSean McCoy and Darrel Williams rushed for touchdowns as the 7-4 Chiefs hung on to win the fourth regular-season NFL game played in Mexico.

Kansas City leads its division by a half-game over Oakland.

Rivers passed for 353 yards during his first four-interception game since November 2016.

The Chargers are 4-7 following their fifth loss in seven games.
