Last season’s Chiefs-Rams game was scheduled to be played in Mexico City but was moved to the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the Rams’ home field, because the condition of the playing surface at Estadio Azteca raised player-safety concerns. The relocated game in L.A.
For the Chiefs, it is their second game with quarterback Patrick Mahomes back in the lineup since he missed two games due to a dislocated right kneecap. He threw for 446 yards and four touchdowns in his return eight days ago at Tennessee. But that still wasn’t enough as the Chiefs lost to the Titans, 35-32. They’ll need to play better, particularly on defense, against the Chargers. The Chiefs, with a record of 6-4, need to win to remain ahead of the Oakland Raiders for first place in the AFC West.

Games are typically broadcast on CBS and Fox on Sunday afternoons. National broadcasts are shown on NBC on Sunday nights, ESPN on Monday nights and the NFL Network on Thursday nights and Sunday mornings. Most of the Thursday night games are simulcast on Fox , Amazon Prime and Twitch. (Note that CBS is the parent company of CNET.)
There is also NFL RedZone to consider, a channel that springs to life each fall and shows live coverage from around the league with the promise to show you every touchdown from every Sunday afternoon game. It’s a great way to watch out-of-market action and essential viewing for fantasy football GMs.

The longer answer: Many live TV streaming services — including Vue as well as AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, Hulu with Live TV and YouTube TV — carry one or more local networks (namely CBS, Fox and NBC ), so they’re the best bet for cord cutters who don’t want to use an over-the-air antenna.
The catch is that not every service carries every local network, so check each one using the links below to make sure it carries the network you want in your area. If you’re looking for the NFL Network you’ll want to focus on Sling TV Blue, PlayStation Vue or
As expected, the Kansas City Chiefs have placed injured defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah on injured reserve. The corresponding move, however, is a bit unexpected.
Ogbah suffered a torn pectoral muscle during Week 10’s game against the Tennessee Titans. He has since had season-ending surgery, and a move to injured reserve was inevitable. The Chiefs just had to come on a decision about whom they’d bring on in place of Ogbah.
Kansas City is thin at the defensive end position with the injury to Ogbah, but they’ve chosen to reinforce a position on the offensive side of the ball instead. Wide receiver Gehrig Dieter has been elevated to the active roster.
Dieter spent the early part of the season on IR with a bulging disk in his back. He was eventually released with an injury settlement. Dieter then was signed back to the practice squad once he had returned to full health.
The Chiefs aren’t exactly stressed at the receiver position, with five available options at the position prior to Dieter’s addition. It’s a perplexing move given their concerns on the defensive side of the ball. One area where Dieter could instantly help is on special teams, as Blake Bell is set to miss this game with a high ankle sprain and typically played about 15 special teams snaps per game.
