The Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers are set to face off on the first “Thursday Night Football” game of the season in Week 2. It also happens to be the NFL’s debut game on Amazon Prime Video, which is the new home of “Thursday Night Football.” The Chiefs have a special guest in the house because of this fact.
Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is in the house and chopping it up on the sidelines with fans, celebrities and players ahead of the game. KSHB-TV’s Aaron Ladd captured a photo of him taking a picture and signing autographs with some fans.

Chiefs punter Tommy Townsend even got some 1-on-1 time with Bezos, likely getting acquainted over their University of Florida ties.
