Hey folks, we have football tonight! KC at New England, 8:30

Beezer : 9/7/2017 8:50 am
Not quite the same as if our team was playing, but still, NFL football tonight, and a pretty interesting matchup.

So, are the Patriots really BETTER than they were last year? Will there be any sort of a SB hangover?

Can Andy Reid get his Chiefs to that "next level" after 3 excellent and another solid showing? KC went 12-4 last year and lost a tough one (18-16) to the Steelers in which their defense didn't allow Pittsburgh access to the end zone (you'll recall, the Steelers scored on 6 field goals and that was that).

Not the Giants, but a potentially fun night of viewing!

What do you think? Chiefs got a shot tonight?

KC

Always plays NE tough.

So sick of the "The Pats are unstoppable" narrative.
KC ia in a tough spot.

5th Super Bowl banner....crowd will be loud and NE will be pumped.

the Giants has shown the formula to beat them....Keep Brady on his ass....hit and hit often. KC has Ability and might be able to keep it close.

can KC's QB win a game?
By all accounts

Pats are better.
still think the pats will take a step back this season  
micky : 9/7/2017 9:58 am : link
but still going to win a weak division. if we're in any other division I still think they wouldn't win the division.


glad it finally all starts for real tonight.
Don't pick against the Pats

Well, that settles that! Nice try Chiefs, on to next week.
Yeah ... the whole "by all accounts" thing ...

may be true, but there are a hell of a lot of games ahead, lots of weather, plenty of injuries that will certainly occur (just the law of averages).

Looking forward to watching tonight!
Lets go Chefs!

Yeah, getting bored with opening w/Dallas every year too.
It's all about the ratings on the opening weekend I guess.

What a sleaze ball that guy is, geez!
I say Mahomes sees mop up duty

before the night is over.

These games are near impossible for the home team to lose. We are the only ones who have so far since the NFL switched the format to SB winner hosting on Thursday night.
seriously

Pats division isn't just weak

it is pathetic historically weak division

Bills rebuilding
Jets are a year away from starting to rebuild
Dolphins have a mediocre QB that was retired a month ago

Please KC

kick Pat ass tonight.

KC has been ridiculously good since the end of 2015.

They're 23-4 in their last 27 regular season games.

The Pats will likely win the game, but KC will give them a tough time.

Didn't realize that. Wow..I do remember they won their last 10-11 games a few years ago?

Chiefs. Because I want to see the Pats lose, and because it irks Eagles fans to see Andy Reid continue to show he's a very good coach
Pats really tough at home  
JonC : 9/7/2017 1:29 pm : link
Go Chiefs.

Wish Giants opened against any team other than Dallas yet again.
Football  
oldog : 9/7/2017 2:00 pm : link
at last. And a nice rooting interest. Beat NE.
definitely rooting for the Chiefs

to do some damage here
Go Chiefs.....  
BillKo : 9/7/2017 2:02 pm : link
but let's hopefully not see Andy Reid mismanage the clock, or do something stupid in regards to strategy that you sometimes shake your head when teams play the Pats.

Respect the Pats, but don't be intimidated.

Doesn't think KC has a chance.
That was a VERY enjoyable game.
