I didn't like it when the Kansas City Chiefs first announced they were giving up a home game to play in London and I really, really don't like it now that I've seen the schedule. This tidbit on the Chiefs 2015 schedule shows why I think it sucks:
From Week 1-11, the Chiefs will play 3 games at Arrowhead.— Arrowhead Pride (@ArrowheadPride) April 22, 2015
I mean, that is pretty bad. I looked up the last five years of the Chiefs schedule and they had five home games before Week 11 in every season. To only have three this year ... that feels like quite the competitive disadvantage.
I know what many of you are thinking. If the first half of the schedule is road heavy then the back half is home heavy. And you're right. The Chiefs do finish the year with four of their final six games at Arrowhead Stadium, including the final two games.
I guess the positive I take out of this is that the Chiefs final two games look like very winnable homes games against Cleveland and Oakland.
