The stretch begins in Week 11 at New England, on “Monday Night Football.” After that, the Chiefs face the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium on “Sunday Night Football,” then have road games against the Chicago Bears and New York Jets. The task concludes at home against the Packers in Week 15.
Maybe the Rams and Chiefs are going to be good enough to show more promise, but the schedule just might not allow it to show up in the standings.
The Kansas City Chiefs announced ticket package information and onsale dates for the 2011 season today. The ticket packages offer fans the flexibility to choose one, two, five or a full 10-game season at Arrowhead, which features three nationally-televised, primetime games in 2011. Chiefs Season Ticket and Pick 5 packages are currently on sale and the 2-pack option will go on sale to Jackson County taxpayers on Monday, April 25.
Part of it is the club’s national appeal, as the Patriots will appear on ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” twice (Week 1 at the Dolphins; Week 12 vs. the Kansas City Chiefs) and on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” twice (Week 10 at the Jets; Week 13 vs. Indianapolis Colts). In addition, there are eight games scheduled for 4:15 p.m., which positions the Patriots for more national exposure.

Originally from Ohio, Patrick is a Chiefs fan first and a Browns fan second (I know!). He also pulls for the Buckeyes, Indians and Cavs. Guinness is thinking of naming him the most miserable sports fan of all time. @rpatrickallen
