Football fans are going to get another healthy dose of this storied AFC West rivalry.
The NFL announced today that the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday Dec. 1 is being moved from a 1 p.m. EST start time to a 4:25 p.m. EST start time. The move was in order to gain a bigger national audience.
Earlier in the season, the Broncos and Chiefs game this upcoming Sunday was flexed to Sunday Night Football. This will give fans of both teams, as well as fans of football all together another shot to see the high-powered offense of the Broncos and the stout defense of the Chiefs go head-to-head.
This was a great move by the league to allow more fans to see a matchup between these two powerhouses. It would have made it more interesting if the game ended up being flexed to Sunday Night Football, but there is still time to change the game to that Sunday night. However, it does not seem likely and would give the Broncos three-straight primetime games.
For the next three weeks, the Broncos and Chiefs are going to be able to show fans all over America a true gridiron test between two teams who are completely polar opposites of how they win games. The top offense of the Broncos; the top defense of the Chiefs. These two games in three weeks will really shake up and show which is truly the best going toward a playoff run. Perhaps even longer toward a bigger prize. We will truly be able to see how the west was won.
