The San Diego Chargers (4-5) hope the second half of the NFL season is a lot like the second half of the team's games this season.

The Chargers have been better in the second half of games this season even though it hasn't always been enough to help San Diego win. But Sunday, against Kansas City, the Chargers' second-half play was enough to get a win in the first game of the second half of the season.

Will it be the start of something big for the Chargers who trail Denver by one game in the AFC West? We'll see.

The following is a look at San Diego's points breakdown by halves of its nine games this season:
