How to watch the Chiefs game in Newton

By Adam Strunk

If you’re going to watch the Kansas City Chiefs play Miami on Sunday, it’s the Eagles Lodge in Newton or at a house.

The Chiefs kick off at 8:30 a.m., playing in Germany against the Dolphins. The matchup pits two teams that have a 6-2 record and could be a preview of the AFC Championship.

According to KSN, NBC has the rights to the game in Kansas City, but the local channel did not have the rights locally to broadcast the game. The game will be broadcast on NFL Network. NFL Network costs range between $4.99 and $9.99 a month, but it does offer a free trial in some cases.

Locally, right now the only spot we found showing the game is the Eagles Lodge at 120 W 5th Street, Newton. They’ll be offering a breakfast smorgasbord while supplies last as well as deals on bloody Marys and mimosas.

Outside of that, no spots where you can usually find football games are advertising being open. Applebee’s confirmed they will not be opening early and showing the game. Acapulco recently added a large number of TVs in the bar area but did not have plans of opening for the game as of Friday. Moxie’s wasn’t immediately available, but their social media didn’t indicate they’ll be open for the game outside of regular operating hours. The American Legion also confirmed it won’t be open for the game. The Coneburg in Peabody will be open at 10:30 a.m. for brunch but doesn’t have NFL Sports Network.

If you do know of a location showing the game, shoot this reporter a note.

And as for why a marquee NFL matchup is being shown at 8:30 a.m. on a Sunday and difficult to access? It comes down to rules.

According to CBS, the Chiefs are obligated to play one international game every eight years due to NFL requirements. The Chiefs chose to hold the game in Germany, as they have international marketing rights to the German market. Divisional games are not typically played internationally, which gave the Chiefs six games to choose from for the season.

Here’s also a list of Wichita locations, compiled by Wichita by E.B. showing the games. Looking at the list, this reporter recommends The Keg in Colwich. Tell Steve that Adam sent you.
