The NFL season kicks off tonight in Kansas City as the Chiefs host the Houston Texans. We decided to call in a three-time NFL Pro Bowl Linebacker Lofa Tatupu to preview the year. Of course, this is a season like none other so it's good to hear from Lofa just what unique challenges he feels the 2020 season will present for the players and the fans.

Everything from little to no fans in the stands and COVID-19 to zero preseason games to judge the talent of players beyond the clear starters will be hurdles for teams and players this season according to Tatupu. Here's a guy that played at the Coliseum for USC and in front of the famed 12th Man in Seattle for the Seahawks. Lofa knows just how valuable crowd support can be.

As if I didn't already love this guy here's Lofa Tatupu at an XFL game between the Seattle Dragons and Dallas Renegades. This guy loves the game!
