Nathaniel Hackett and 2 more coaches on the hot seat this week
SoFi Stadium was filled with Kansas City Chiefs fans for the Los Angeles Chargers home game on Sunday Night Football.
Prior to Week 11, it was revealed that the Sunday Night Football game would be changed. In place of the Cincinnati Bengals-Pittsburgh Steelers game, NBC had the Los Angeles Chargers hosting the rival Kansas City Chiefs. This game was an opportunity for the Chargers to gain ground on the Chiefs in the AFC West standings, especially with the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders well out of the picture.
When it comes to SoFi Stadium, the home team crowd doesn’t exactly fill up the majority of the seats. That was evident on Sunday night, as the stadium was filled primarily with Chiefs fans.
Chiefs fans dominate SoFi Stadium attendance for Chargers game
Give credit where credit is due — Chiefs fans travel well.
Last week, Kansas City improved their record to 7-2 on the season after they picked up a 27-17 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. But in that game, they lost wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster to a concussion. Smith-Schuster was not active for Week 11, and neither was Mecole Hardman, who was placed on injured reserve with an abdomen injury.
Meanwhile, Los Angeles suffered a 22-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, as they were held to just 51 rushing yards on the day. This week, however, the Chargers got both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams back from injury.
The Chiefs will obviously look to feed off of their fans at SoFi Stadium to continue to pull away from the pack in the division.
