Kansas City Chiefs 2017 NFL Offseason Guide

Hall of Fame Game/NFL Preseason: August 3rd – September 6th

Finally some real football. Well, not quite as it’s just a scrimmage. Also, it is very unlikely that the Kansas City Chiefs will get the nod for the Hall of Fame Game. The Chiefs haven’t played in this exhibition since 2003, and have only appeared in the game three times in it’s history. The NFL always tries to get teams that will draw the largest audience for their preseason opener.

This game will mark the beginning of the 2017 NFL preseason. Teams will use these scrimmage games as opportunity to decide who goes and who stays on their rosters. Along the way, we will see injuries and suspensions pop up, but very little in the way of exciting football.

Though preseason games mean absolutely nothing when it comes to the scoreboard, you can learn a lot about the team. Watching the Chiefs in preseason this past year showed some early deficiencies, especially in stopping the run. If you know what to look for, this can be a very educational experience.
