Football is back!
These teams haven’t faced off all that often in their histories, meeting just 14 times, but the Chiefs lead the series 9-5, and have won the past two games. They last faced off back in 2019, when Kansas City narrowly won in Detroit, 34-30.
A lot has changed in four years, particularly for the Lions, who were on the cusp of something special in 2022 and loaded up in a few key areas this offseason. We’re all excited to see rooking RB Jahmyr Gibbs in his NFL debut, and how Jared Goff can build on last year’s offense.
We already know that the Chiefs are good, and should be good again in 2023. They are still without Chris Jones, who continues his holdout for a new contract, and Travis Kelce is questionable after hyper-extending his knee at practice earlier in the week. Still, Patrick Mahomes is at quarterback, so anything can happen.
Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s game.
