Texans head to Arrowhead Stadium to face Chiefs to open 2020 season

The Houston Texans will head to face the Kansas City Chiefs in a Thursday Night Football showdown to open the 2020 regular season.

The Houston Texans will be kicking off their 2020 season by heading to Arrowhead Stadium to face off with the defending Super Bowl Champion, Kansas City Chiefs. The matchup was first reported by Chicago 670 host from The Score, Danny Parkins early Thursday morning. 

Multiple sources have confirmed the matchup between two of the AFC's top teams heading into the 2020 season lead by Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes and Texans' quarterback Deshaun Watson

The game is set for September 10 with kickoff at 7:20 pm. 

The NFL is set to release its league-wide schedule on Thursday at 7:30 p.m. central. 

The Texans have been almost evenly matched up throughout their history against the Chiefs as they hold a 5-7 record against them. 

Last season, the Texans played against the Chiefs twice, once in the regular season and once in the playoffs. In the regular season match, which was at Arrowhead Stadium, the Texans squeaked by the Chiefs with a 31-24 win as Watson threw for 280 yards and a touchdown while Carlos Hyde ran for over a hundred yards and also scored a touchdown. 

The next meeting between these two teams occurred in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, where the Texans notably blew a 21-0 to the eventual Super Bowl Champs. The game took place in the frigid Arrowhead Stadium. 

The Texans ended up being dominated in the latter parts of the game, which ended with a 51-31 loss to the Chiefs. 

The Texans will visit the Chiefs at Arrowhead for the fourth time in the regular season and fifth time in head-to-head matchups.
