What channel is Chiefs vs. Chargers on today? Schedule, time for 'Monday Night Football' game

Sporting News

For the first time this season, Chiefs and Chargers fans will have to scan their TV channels for ESPN in order to watch their teams play. Kansas City vs. Los Angeles, a game scheduled to kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET from Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, is the "Monday Night Football" feature for Week 11.

The Chiefs, technically the road team for Monday night's game in Mexico, are 4 1/2-point favorites over the Chargers.

Estadio Azteca, which is 7,201 feet above sea level, will host a regular-season NFL game for the fourth time (2005, 2016 and 2017). It was supposed to host a Monday night clash between the Chiefs and Rams last season, but concerns over the quality of the field forced the NFL to move the game to Los Angeles.
