Ladies and gentlemen, we finally made it. The 2020-21 NFL regular season is officially set to kick off in primetime on Thursday night with the Houston Texans traveling to Arrowhead Stadium for a meeting with the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs.
The two teams last met in the divisional round of the AFC Playoffs with Patrick Mahomes led an epic comeback after the Chiefs fell into a 24-0 hole to earn the win and continue on their Super Bowl run.
Now, eight months later and in the middle of a global pandemic, the Houston Texans will have a chance at redemption.
The Chiefs enter tonight’s game as heavy 9.5-point favorites.
