NFL 2020 schedule: Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans will kick off season on September 10

The NFL announced Thursday night that the defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, will kick off the 2020 season in a game against the Houston Texans on September 10 — pending developments in the coronavirus pandemic, of course.

The league debuted the entire 2020 schedule Thursday night, including another highlight on opening weekend: Tom Brady’s regular-season debut with Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers’ new quarterback will face off against New Orleans’ Drew Brees on September 13 — the first matchup of two quarterbacks over the age of 40 in NFL history.

The Chiefs, who won their first Super Bowl in a half-century last February, still have a logistical hurdle to overcome. The city’s baseball team, the Royals, will need to move their game scheduled for the same day, because the teams’ stadiums share parking lots.
