The Rams haven’t appeared on Monday Night Football since 1991, and St. Louis hasn’t hosted a Monday night game since 1986, but on September 4th, the Rams will open their season against the Denver Broncos at 8pm before a national Monday Night audience. They have three Monday night games this year, plus a Sunday night game on ESPN, plus two nationally televised pre-season games. Things sure change when you win the Super Bowl. The Chiefs didn’t play on Monday last year, but they have two Monday night games this season. And we’ll all be treated to a big intra-state showdown when the Rams visit Arrowhead Stadium October 22nd. One thing surprises me. The Rams won the Super Bowl, but the Chiefs have a much tougher schedule. That has a lot to do with the divisions in which they play. The NFC West is a mess. But the Chiefs will play six games against teams that made the playoffs last year, and the Rams will play just four. And after their game with the Rams the Chiefs face a brutal stretch with five out of six on the road. Seems a little tough for a team that didn’t make the playoffs.
