The Kansas City Chiefs prepare on the field at StubHub Center for the start of the season opener against the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday September 9, 2018.

If you watched the entirety of the Chiefs’ 38-28 win over the Chargers on Sunday, you likely heard a familiar sound near the end of the game.

Chiefs fans, who were out in force at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif., were chanting. Technically this was a road game, but the Chiefs had to feel right at home playing in front of a sea of red.

Some called it Arrowhead West.

This wasn’t a case of Chiefs fans sticking around while Chargers fans bailed after it became apparent that Los Angeles wasn’t going to win. There was a “Tyreek” chant for Tyreek Hill, who had a huge game. When the Chargers were on offense, shouts of “De-fense!” echoed in the stadium.

This former Chargers fan captured the Kansas City fans chanting at the end:

This was the reaction when the Chiefs’ Dee Ford sacked Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers in the first quarter:

This Chargers fan wearily noted that red is not part of the Chargers’ color scheme:
