Everyone is ready for the Kansas City Chiefs‘ 2022 home opener.
The team looks ready after a dominating Week 1 performance on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.
Quarterback Patrick Mahomes looks to be in mid-season form after throwing five touchdowns in that game.
The turf at Arrowhead Stadium also got a facelift to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Likewise, the fans are ready to pack the stands once the gates open.
They have been waiting for this moment for a long while and are already lining up hours before kickoff.
You know it’s game day when @Chiefs fans lined up outside @GEHAField 14+ hours ahead of kickoff. They say they’re ready to hang with friends they haven’t seen in 7 months #ChiefsKingdom #Chiefs41 pic.twitter.com/CuUnH14BF7

KSHB41 reporter Charlie Keegan tweeted, “You know it’s game day when @Chiefs fans lined up outside @GEHAField 14+ hours ahead of kickoff. They say they’re ready to hang with friends they haven’t seen in 7 months #ChiefsKingdom #Chiefs41.”
Those 14 hours will quickly fly by as they catch up with friends with the same affinity for the Chiefs.
They must also prepare for the tailgate party by firing up the grill, preparing the barbecue, and keeping the beer cool.
It will be a party at Kansas City, especially because they are celebrating Arrowhead’s golden year.
Therefore, only a Chiefs victory will cap off a great day for these fans.
Injury Update For Chiefs
Kicker Harrison Butker will be out for Week 2 due to a left ankle injury.
While a new kicker was signed, Justin Reid is always ready to step in if needed.
However, Reid is also nursing a left-hand injury but should be able to perform the duties as the kicker if needed again.
Meanwhile, guard Trey Smith is questionable because of an ankle injury.
Mahomes is also dealing with an injury on his left wrist, while JuJu Smith-Schuster and Justin Watson have shoulder and chest injuries.
