Travis Kelce and the Kansas City Chiefs hit the road to take on Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos for a Week 8 matchup. A 72% chance of snow means the Broncos may have the edge, but a poor weather forecast will have the game overturned on ice.

Plots we’re following this season

Important dates to remember:

  • The 2023 NFL regular season runs from today until January 7, 2024.
  • The playoffs are scheduled for January 13 through January 28, 2004.
  • Super Bowl LVIII is scheduled for February 11, 2024 in Las Vegas

Let’s talk about these lions: The Detroit Lions enter Week 8 with a 5-2 record, which puts them two games ahead of the Minnesota Vikings for first place in the NFC North. The division Aaron Rodgers dominated for so long now belongs to Jared Goff and the Lions. Fueled by Dan Campbell and a defense you wouldn’t want to be on the other side of, the Lions’ rebuild is in full effect. Do the Lions have what it takes to make it to the Super Bowl? That remains to be seen, but we’ll have fun watching them try. If ever there was an NFL underdog to root for, it would be this team.

Taylor Swift is the only thing bigger than the NFL: Taylor and Travis officially made it official, kicking off their romance with surprise cameos on SNL and a public PDA moment that made Swifties and Chiefs Kingdom swoon. As if the fans weren’t already in charge of the Chiefs, Swift fanned an entire universe of 12-year-old girls. If they haven’t tuned in yet, they are now. With booming ratings, jacket sales galore, and sightings of Taylor at Arrowhead Stadium, Taylor Swift has proven that the only thing bigger than the NFL is her.

What’s up with the 49ers? Brock Purdy silenced the naysayers last season when he took over after both QBs Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo suffered season-ending injuries. Coach Shanahan traded Lance and gave Purdy the starting job this season with little concern that the final pick of the 2022 NFL Draft would have what it takes. The team went undefeated until back-to-back losses in Weeks 6 and 7. Deebo, Christian McCaffrey and George Kittle have battled injuries all season, but Shanahan will need them in the game if he wants to keep Niners fans from turning away from Team Purdy to another team.
