Two AFC West rivals faceoff under the bright lights of Thursday Night Football and one of the biggest stars in the world may be in attendance to watch them play. Superstar singer Taylor Swift is expected to be in attendance at Arrowhead Stadium to watch Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs (4-1) take on Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos (1-4).
Kelce is listed as questionable heading into the game due to an ankle injury, but Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told KCTV5, he’s taking a “see where it goes approach.” Without Kelce, the Chiefs lose their best offensive weapon for QB Patrick Mahomes, but they are playing against a Broncos defense that ranks dead last. Each game this season, Mahomes has thrown for 200 yards, and with the Chiefs returning to the Arrowhead, its fans hope that pattern will continue.
The horses from the Mile-High City have seen better days, but they will be looking to turn things around in front of a national audience tonight. The Broncos are coming off a 31-21 defeat against the New York Jets, who employ former head coach Nathaniel Hackett. Last week’s game was noteworthy because when first-year Broncos coach Sean Payton took over the job, he criticized Hackett as doing “one of the worst jobs” in history. With the AFC West slipping away from Denver, the Broncos need a win tonight if they want to save their season. QB Russell Wilson has improved upon last season but the team still isn’t performing as many expected heading into the year.
Tonight marks the 127th time that the Chiefs-Broncos have taken the field with Kansas City leading 71-55 (including playoffs). If you cannot land a ticket in Arrowhead to watch tonight’s game or see Taylor Swift, then you can find out how to watch Bronco-Chiefs live, below.
