Exploring why KC Chiefs aren’t playing in Germany in 2022


The NFL announced the slate of international games that will be played for the 2022 NFL season and when the first-ever contest in Germany was announced, the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers were the names called. What seemed like an exciting proposal was left on the table, and the anticipated Bucs vs. Chiefs matchup in Munich was realized as fiction. Looking at the bigger picture, however, the idea of leaving the Chiefs at home this year makes sense. It doesn’t make for the most exciting football in ’22, and it doesn’t get the Chiefs through the door as soon as they’d like, but it’s the proper plan from 30,000 feet all the same.
