It seems many players are not huge fans of the new NFL rule which allows teams to play in two Thursday Night Football games a season. Previously, every team had one Thursday Night Football game and many players have previously complained about the safety issues involved with such a quick turnaround.
Yesterday, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes voiced displeasure for the new rule as he posted a face palm emoji in response to the news. Today, Chiefs safety Justin Reid elaborated on the issues with playing multiple Thursday Night games a year.

Props to Reid for elaborating on this controversial topic. Interesting that he also mentioned the fans as they could be faced with tough situations trying to plan for travel and tickets for games that are flexed by the NFL.
