Thousands Of Chiefs Fans Were Lined up In The Early Morning Before Gates Open For ‘Thursday Night Football’ Game vs Chargers

Kansas City Chiefs fans took tailgating to another level on Thursday.

Chiefs fans are clearly quite excited about the first home game of the season against an AFC West rival in the Los Angeles Chargers. They’re also looking forward to getting a chance to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Arrowhead Stadium.
