NFL preseason Week 2: Commanders vs. Chiefs live stream, start time on Saturday, August 20

The Game

The Kansas City Chiefs host the Washington Commanders at Arrowhead Stadium in Week 2 of the NFL preseason. Kickoff is set for 3 pm Arrowhead Time. The game will be televised nationally on NFL Network — locally on KSHB/41).

In 2021, the Chiefs posted a 12-5 record that gave them the AFC’s second postseason seed. After defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills in the playoffs, the team hosted its fourth consecutive AFC Championship — but fell to the Cincinnati Bengals 27-24 in overtime to its season. Kansas City opened its preseason schedule with a 19-14 road loss to the Chicago Bears last Saturday.

The Chiefs enter 2022 with two of its offensive superstars — quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce — returning to the roster. But it will be without wide receiver Tyreek Hill, whom the team traded to the Miami Dolphins in March. In free agency, the team acquired wide receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Justin Watson — and then used a second-round pick to acquire wide receiver Skyy Moore in the NFL Draft. The team is expected to use all of these pass-catchers — along with returning wideout Mecole Hardman — to establish a more balanced passing attack in 2022.

The Commanders finished last season out of the playoffs with a 7-10 record, which placed them third in the NFC East. They opened the preseason last Saturday with a 23-21 loss to the Carolina Panthers.

2021’s starting quarterback Taylor Heinicke remains with the team, but is now the backup behind Carson Wentz, whom the Commanders acquired in a trade with the Indianapolis Colts in March. In April, the team also selected North Carolina quarterback Sam Howell in the fifth round of the NFL Draft.

Now in his third season as the Commanders’ head coach, Ron Rivera was an assistant coach to Kansas City head coach Andy Reid during his early years leading the Philadelphia Eagles.
