The Kansas City Chiefs are hosting the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night. Here’s how you can watch.
Want to catch the action at Arrowhead Stadium? You have come to the right place. Kansas City is hosting the Packers with almost none of the starters getting any run. The Chiefs are not going to be trotting anybody of note onto the field to risk injury, especially with the regular season only a week away.
Time: 7 p.m. CST

Kansas City will be using the night to get a good look at players on the roster bubble. With the Chiefs having to get down to 53 players by Saturday at 3 p.m. CST, head coach Andy Reid and general manager John Dorsey have decisions to make.
It will be intriguing to see how much time De’Anthony Thomas and Knile Davis get. Davis is in his fourth season and has proven to be a decent backup running back and a terrific return man. Thomas has not shown quite the same ability, although he can certainly contribute on offense and has a knack for solid punt returns.
Another area to watch is the secondary. The Chiefs should be looking hard at Eric Murray, KeiVarae Russell, D.J. White and Marcus Cooper, along with Jamell Fleming and Phillip Gaines (if he plays). Russell has barely played throughout the preseason and White could be getting real action if he steps up tonight. The same can be said for Murray.
Finally, what is the deal at inside linebacker? Will we see a ton of Justin March and Ramik Wilson now that Josh Mauga has been placed on Injured Reserved with a hip injury? Wilson and March has been splitting starting time with Mauga down, so maybe tonight gives the team clarity on the situation.
