Chiefs vs Vikings : The Minnesota Vikings, led by quarterback Kirk Cousins, meet the Kansas City Chiefs, led by quarterback Matt Moore, in an NFC vs. AFC Week 9 NFL football game on Sunday, November 3, 2019 (11/3/19) at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.
The AFC West’s first-place team was poised to contend for the top seed in the AFC, but Patrick Mahomes’ knee injury has reset expectations. The schedule hasn’t done them any favors, either, with the Green Bay Packers coming in last week and beating them in their first week without Mahomes.
This week, with Mahomes expected to miss another game, the Minnesota Vikings are on their way to K.C. It’s a big game for the Vikings, too, as they’re looking to keep pace in the NFC North, where they currently trail Green Bay by a game.
