Chiefs' Arrowhead Stadium Ranked Fourth Toughest Venue In NFL

New, comments

One thing I like nearly as much as talking about greatness of the Kansas City Chiefs' Arrowhead Stadium is talking about the downfall of [Insert corporate name here] Field at Mile High, home of the Denver Broncos. ESPN.com recently ranked the top 10 stadiums in the NFL and Arrowhead came in at fourth.

....Mile High? Not so much.

"The magic has left," wrote AFC West blogger Bill Williamson, who ranked Lambeau first and Arrowhead fourth, but did not rank Mile High at all. "It's strange because the air is just as thin as it used to be, but the Broncos have lost their home-field edge. This is a team that lost at home by 45 points last year. It doesn't belong anywhere near this list right now."

Four of the eight voters ranked Mile High in the top 10 but it wasn't enough to put them in the top 10 in the overall standings. Lambeau Field (Green Bay Packers) is first, Heinz Field (Pittsburgh Steelers) is second, Qwest Field (Seattle Seahawks) is third and Arrowhead is fourth.
