Welcome to game day! Almost. The Kansas City Chiefs will visit the Chicago Bears on Saturday, August 27 for their third game on the 2016 NFL preseason schedule. The Chiefs are 0-2 on the preseason with losses to the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams.
The Chiefs and Bears game should be available on TV for most of you. In Kansas City, it will be on KCTV-5. Nationally, it looks like it will be on NFL Network at 12 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) on Saturday afternoon. You can also livestream the game on NFL Game Pass.
The Chiefs are expecting to play their starters into the second half after they went just about a half last week in Los Angeles. This is the dress rehearsal game where teams try to make it as real as possible. I don’t expect Alex Smith and the Chiefs starters to play much if at all next week for the preseason finale.
The Chiefs offense has looked strong scoring on all but one drive. The key for them is to keep the momentum up and put points on the board. Defensively, the Chiefs have to prove they can stop the run. They haven’t really done that yet so let’s see them do that.
