Next Stop For The Chiefs: Chargers On Monday Night Football

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Green Bay Packers 17-13 for their first -- ! -- preseason win since Aug. 28, 2008. It's the final preseason game of the year so that means the regular season is right around the corner.

The next stop for the Kansas City Chiefs: Monday Night Football. Sept. 13. San Diego Chargers. Arrowhead Stadium.

"I'm very excited," rookie Eric Berry said in the Chiefs locker room following the game. "I'm just ready to get down to it and continue what we've been doing. Now we can really focus on our game plan and we can get ready for those guys."

Indeed the Chiefs will now be dedicated solely to preparing for the Chargers. They've done some scout team stuff with the Chargers but the next 11 days will be all San Diego, all the time.

"I don't think it's going to be much of a break," LB Demorrio Williams said of the 11-day gap between their games.  "We're playing against a division opponent. The main thing is for us to get ready to go Monday night. We know what San Diego is about. Last year they won this division. So when we open Monday night, it's a division game and we have to be prepared."

The stadium at the Packers game this Thursday evening was less than half full (maybe not even a third full). It would seem these last two games haven't been legitimate sell-outs.

Somehow I think that season opener on Monday Night Football against the Chargers will sell out though.
