KANSAS CITY (1-6) AT SAN DIEGO (3-4) TV: NFL Network, 5:15 PDT. Line: Chargers by 8. Over/Under: 42 1/2. Sam Farmer's pick: This game will be closer than the first meeting. The Chargers can't bank on the Chiefs turning over the ball six times the way they did in a 37-20 loss in Week 4. Chargers 24, Chiefs 17.

The Kansas City Chiefs are displaying a defending champion's resilience. The San Diego Chargers are being labeled as weak-minded, lacking intestinal fortitude and — yes — soft. Sure, the Chargers are 4-2 and possess a one-game lead over the Chiefs (3-3) in the AFC West, but as quarterback Philip Rivers leads his team into always-tough Arrowhead Stadium for a Monday night game, rallying Kansas City is ready to push back. The change in momentum actually started Sept.

What were we thinking? Just two months ago, at the start of the NFL season, these things seemed like reasonable possibilities: ?The Dallas Cowboys would be the first team to play a Super Bowl in its home stadium. (They have yet to win a game there.) Donovan McNabb was born again with the Washington Redskins. (He was benched in favor of Rex Grossman at the end of Sunday's loss at Detroit.) One more season with Brett Favre would do the trick for the thisclose Minnesota Vikings.

Philip Rivers hadn't even reached the airport after Sunday's game in Kansas City, and already his spirits had climbed to 35,000 feet. The San Diego quarterback said he was calling from the team bus, although it sounded closer to cloud nine. "This is one of those games you'll never forget," the elated cellphone Charger said as teammates hollered and laughed in the background, basking in the afterglow of a 41-38 upset of the Chiefs. Rivers clinched the victory with a 26-yard touchdown pass to receiver Seyi Ajirotutu with 24 seconds to play, not only halting San Diego's losing streak at three games but also keeping flickering playoff hopes alive.

NATO military chiefs called for reinforcements and more resources for Afghanistan's national security forces, an alliance spokesman said. NATO did not say from where the reinforcements should come, and no decision was made on sending more NATO troops to the region, said military committee spokesman Col. Massimo Panizzi. The issue probably will be discussed Thursday and Friday at talks in Bratislava, Slovakia. Panizzi said the chiefs of defense from 42 nations involved in the war in Afghanistan also called for a new "people-centric" approach to the campaign that would focus on protecting Afghan civilians.

Maybe the Raiders did all us local fans a big favor by putting on such a weak defensive effort against the Chiefs. A few hundred thousand of us did not want a home game Saturday. Now we'll get it on TV. JOHN D. ANDREWS Palos Verdes

When you think of birthstones, diamonds, rubies or emeralds probably come to mind. The rocks you'll find at Kukaniloko Birthstones State Monument in Oahu, however, weren't for wearing. They were used for giving birth. The monument, one of the Hawaiian island's most important cultural sites, was a birthing location for chiefs. Women of prominent families would recline against the site's birthstone, called Kukaniloko (seen here in the foreground), to bear children. Chiefs witnessed from rows of stones nearby.
