The Kansas City Chiefs are set to take on the Minnesota Vikings in their final preseason game.
The Kansas City Chiefs are currently 2-0 in the preseason and the start of the regular season keeps getting closer. The first few cut deadlines have come and gone and the final cut down to the 53 man roster is on Tuesday August 31.
So far, it seems like the Kansas City Chiefs are having good competitive battles at many of the positions. With that being said this final preseason game against the Vikings might be critical in deciding who makes the team.
The Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on the Minnesota Vikings at GEHA Field in Arrowhead Stadium. The game will take place at 7:00PM CST. The Chiefs will continue to have competition at the receiver position with the final spots up for grabs. Wide receivers such as Cornell Powell, Marcus Kemp, Daurice Fountain, Gerig Dieter, and Darrius Shepherd are all trying to make the team.
Another group to keep an eye on would be in the secondary.
Will the Kansas City Chiefs go with six cornerbacks? It’ll also be interesting to see the plan at safety since the Chiefs cut Will Parks.
What about at tight end? Can beloved fan favorite Jody Fortson make the team. Fortson put on a great showing in training camp and it seems like he’s caught the eye of special teams coach Dave Toub.
Kansas City Chiefs: Chiefs set to face Minnesota Vikings to close out 2021 NFL preseason
A few of the Kansas City Chiefs have been banged up in training camp along with the preseason games. Clyde Edwards-Helaire experienced an ankle injury in the preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals and could miss this final preseason game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Meanwhile, Darrel Williams was placed in concussion protocol. This is going to give players like Darwin Thompson and Derrick Gore an opportunity to make an impression for the 53 man roster. Hill has been going through a hamstring injury which will give more preseason playing time for the wide receivers on the bubble.
This final preseason game will have a lot of position battles, and this is the final tune up before the home opener on Sunday, September 12 at GEHA Field in Arrowhead Stadium.
