The Kansas City Chiefs open the NFL season on Thursday, September 7, with a home date against the Detroit Lions. That is one of six games in primetime for the Chiefs, with the defending Super Bowl Champions also slated to play in the most anticipated regular season game of the year. That game is on Sunday, Nover 5, when the Chiefs and Miami Dolphins travel to Hamburg, Germany, for the first regular season contest in a country that loves its NFL.
Chiefs games – like all NFL games – are not cheap. Getting a ticket on Immortal Seats for less than $200 is tough, but at least you know you will pay no fees. Arrowhead’s cheapest game of the 2023 season is the Chiefs’ contest against the Las Vegas Raiders. This would normally be a premium ticket, given the decades-long rivalry between the two, but tickets can be had for under $125 as the game will be played on Christmas Day in 2023.

Is it even possible to repeat as champs?
The last team to repeat as Super Bowl champions was the 2003-04 New England Patriots. It has been 20 years since that team claimed back-to-back Lombardi Trophies, and more teams have fallen apart early than challenged at the back end of the season since Tom Brady passed his team to that feat. This was a time before the iPhone (it was invented three years later), which should give an idea of how hard it is to win in consecutive years.
The Chiefs need to find a replacement left tackle and have huge questions about their returning wide receiver corps. They also have a potential hole at defensive end with the loss of Frank Clark. They have a generational talent at quarterback in Patrick Mahomes and a generational coach on the sidelines in Andy Reid. Anyone betting against the Chiefs winning again – remember that Mahomes played the entire playoffs last season on one good leg – hasn’t been paying enough attention to how those two can lift an entire team to victory.
