Game Date: Sat Jan 16, 2016
Teams: Kansas City Chiefs @ New England Patriots
Whoops. I kind of stumbled onto this game on a Saturday afternoon. I wasn’t planning on watching it and missed the first half, but I’ll check out the remainder of the game since it features the hated cheaters, New England Patriots.
None, really. I should’ve checked the schedule — it never occurred to me that there might be an NFL game on Saturday. When I tuned in, New England was up 14-6 with about half a minute remaining in the half.
Seemed like pretty good play from both teams. I’ve enjoyed seeing New England lose a couple times this year, but KC just couldn’t do it today. I never heard any comment about the weather in Foxborough, but it seemed pretty mild for January. Final: New England 27, Kansas City 20.
TV Razzle Dazzle
- Total separate ads beginning at halftime: 68. Testosterone Factor average 4.72/7.0.
- Auto/Truck and TV Shows again dominated.
- I chuckled that they aired a local commercial during halftime for Vikings tickets at the Bank. The Vikings are done for the year and likely will never play at the Bank Stadium again (I hope the Vikings didn’t get charged for that ad).
- Plug for Super Bowl 50 included a Jackie Gleason clip in which he says “watch the Super Bowl.” That must’ve been from some game after 1968, as the game wasn’t called Super Bowl officially until 1969 (Super Bowl III).
So much to learn
I’m having trouble pasting the commercial roster onto this post. I’ll keep trying. The roster for this game is fairly typical of those from every other game.
