Chiefs information surrounds the discharge of the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs’ 2020 common season schedule. What video games weren’t included within the primetime slate?
*THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN WITH THE HELP OF A SCREEN READER*
The sports activities world continues to be on maintain, but it surely appears to be enterprise as typical for the NFL, who unveiled their schedule for 2020. All of us cross our fingers that it’ll not want any restructuring and that the stadiums shall be jammed full of raucous followers starved for soccer.
Because the defending Nationwide Champs, the Kansas City Chiefs have one of many more durable schedules within the league, and a slate loaded with what guarantees to be entertaining video games from high to backside. That being stated, I can’t assist however discover that maybe the Chiefs schedule isn’t precisely how I assumed it will be.
The Chiefs will open the league season in opposition to the Houston Texans in primetime on the opening Thursday of the NFL season in Arrowhead stadium. Together with that they are going to play 4 different primetime video games. This isn’t shocking in of itself, however what’s shocking to me, are the video games that aren’t primetime that ought to have been.
CHIEFS VS RAIDERS – SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11TH (WEEK 5)
There may be nothing fairly like (insert Boomer voice) RAIDERS week in KC, and particularly in the course of October, when the autumn night climate shall be cool and crisp and completely excellent for tailgating on the best stadium within the league.
Now I do know that the Chiefs are touring to Vegas in week 11 and that’s primetime, however the two video games ought to have been switched. Hear, the attract of placing the Chiefs/Raiders in Vegas recreation in primetime is sensible what with the brand new stadium and the lights of Vegas, however come on.
Initially, the Chiefs are the defending Tremendous Bowl champs and out of their 5 video games below the lights this season, solely two of these are within the pleasant confines of Arrowhead in entrance of the ocean of crimson. The champs deserve higher then that, particularly when going up in opposition to a division opponent – a division during which the Chiefs have completely dominated for the final 4 years (quickly to be 5).
Secondly, I’d not go so far as to say that there received’t be followers on the primetime recreation in Vegas, as loads of Vegas vacationers, Chiefs followers and Raider nation trustworthy will present up, but it surely won’t be just like the black gap days of previous.
Each the Raiders and Chiefs made a number of good acquisitions through the 2020 NFL Draft, and October 11th would be the first time these two bitter enemies meet within the 2020 season. What higher method to spotlight a rivalry virtually as previous because the league itself, then placing it below the spot lights of Sunday Night time Soccer?
The Week 11 primetime recreation in Vegas needs to be swapped with the Week 5 recreation at Arrowhead that’s slated for a midday kickoff, and have the week 5 recreation moved to primetime.
The present recreation on Sunday Night time Soccer for week 5 is Vikings VS Seahawks. I get it, it’s a convention match up between two very stout groups, however is that basically extra intertaining than a divisional matchup between the Tremendous Bowl champs and certainly one of their most hated rivals below the lights of Arrowhead? I believe not.
