Chiefs Replay: Week 8 vs. the Detroit Lions
WHEN:Saturday, April 23 at 10:35 p.m.
After losing five straight games, the Kansas City Chiefs snapped the streak against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium, and the idea now was to keep the ball rolling.
But the challenge ahead wasn't that simple.
The next game involved long-distance travel to London, England, where they would face the Detroit Lions.
The Lions at the time had won just one game, but with only two to the Chiefs name, there still was uncertainty.
How would they handle the 10-hour flight across the Atlantic? Could they put two wins together? Would London fans support the Chiefs in what was considered a home game for Kansas City?
With continued little room for error, Chiefs Kingdom and the United Kingdom became one for the first time ever, and the Chiefs hoped to head into the bye week on a winning note.
