Here’s all the information, analysis, predictions, and updates you need Texans vs. Chiefs.
We’re finally here. Tonight is the night. Thursday Night Football premieres in a matter of hours, and the Kansas City Chiefs will finally celebrate their Super Bowl in front of a (revised) home crowd against the visiting Houston Texans. A full offseason filled with drama—from a global pandemic to player movement—is now giving way to actual games.
For Chiefs Kingdom, tonight is the first step in a long journey to “run it back,” the mantra embraced by the team in its efforts to repeat as Super Bowl champions. After lifting the Lombardi Trophy for the first time in 50 seasons, suddenly this city has been crowned favorites once again. Expectations are high and will remain so as long as Andy Reid is head coach and Patrick Mahomes is under center.
But the Houston Texans are certainly not going to roll over for the sake of pageantry. Bill O’Brien‘s team had the Chiefs on the ropes just last postseason, with a 24-point lead into the second quarter. It should also be said that the Texans won the regular season contest as well. Houston played the part of whipping boy in the offseason due to personnel moves, but all that matters is how things play out on the field.
