Expect dreary conditions for the Chiefs’ game Thursday night against Oakland.

The O.co Coliseum was pounded by rain all day. And while the field was covered by a tarp, it had to come off two hours before gametime — when it was still raining. It will be interesting to see how the field holds up over the course of the game.

Here are a few photos from the field, just three hours before gametime.
