Thanks to the NFL programming system, we all knew the Dallas Cowboys would visit the Kansas City Chiefs in 2021, but that doesn’t change how excited people got when the schedule was released and we saw this game.
Kansas City has been the gold standard for offense in the NFL since Patrick Mahomes took over full-time as quarterback in 2018 (incidentally the year after Dallas faced them for the last time. time). They appeared in the AFC Championship Play every year with him under center, played in two Super Bowls and won one. They are as elitist as they get.
Obviously, the Chiefs have struggled this season before rebounding last week against the Las Vegas Adventurers. It looks like they are finding their place just in time to welcome the Cowboys to Arrowhead Stadium in what is sure to be one of the most-watched games this year.
Mike McCarthy’s Cowboys responded with authority last week as they demolished the Atlanta Falcons 40 points. Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Dalton Schultz help pave the way for one of the NFL’s best and most effective offenses, but again, doing it in front of thousands of Chiefs fans would send the kind of post that America’s Team 2021 is set to do on a weekly basis.
It goes without saying that on paper it looks like Game of the Season and maybe a potential preview of a certain game at the end of it all. Time will tell if this eventually comes to fruition, but we’re all going to have a great time and feel a ton of stress on Sunday afternoon.
