Kansas City Chiefs Will Be On Primetime In 2012 Season

The Kansas City Chiefs will be on primetime in the 2012 season.

And so will every other team.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said at his annual Super Bowl press conference that the NFL Network Thursday Night Football package is expanding to 13 games -- from Week 2 to Week 15.

He also said every team would get a primetime game in the 2012 season. Whether it's Sunday night, Monday night or Thursday night, the Chiefs will be on primetime.

The NFL schedule is expected to be released sometime in April.

This means that our Chiefs will be on primetime once again, which is a good thing (obviously). The Chiefs struggled in 2011 so they probably would not have been a primetime priority for the league if the schedule were done the way it's usually done.

I'm biased but Arrowhead Stadium in primetime is, as Rudy's dad once said of Notre Dame's stadium, the most beautiful thing these eyes have ever seen.
