Week 1 of the 2010 NFL season has come and gone, but lucky football fans across the country got a full dose of NFL action throughout the week. And while some fans in Kansas City might be a little bleary eyed today after staying up until the end of the late game Monday night, everyone is in agreement that it was definitely worth it to see the new-look Chiefs win the first game of their potentially historic turnaround season.
