The NFL schedule is coming out at some point this week, but we already know who the Kansas City Chiefs are playing and where those games will be held.
The Super Bowl champs are looking for a repeat. If they can pull it off, they’d be the first ones to go back-to-back since the 2004 New England Patriots.
Of course, the Chiefs have some serious factors in their favor. For starters, Kansas City employs the best quarterback on earth in Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes has been a starter for two seasons and already has posted a 5,000-yard season, a 50-touchdown campaign, two Pro Bowl berths, one First-Team All-Pro year, and MVP award and a Super Bowl MVP.
Mahomes is coached by a future Hall of Famer in Andy Reid. Those mean re surrounded by a hoard of talent including receivers Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins and Mecole Hardman, tight end Travis Kelce, defensive linemen Frank Clark and Chris Jones, and safeties Juan Thornhill and Tyrann Mathieu.
So which lucky teams draw the Chiefs this year? Here’s the complete list with home and away designations:
Kansas City Chiefs 2020 opponents
Home: Los Angeles Chargers, Las Vegas Raiders, Denver Broncos, New York Jets, New England Patriots, Houston Texans, Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons
Away: Los Angeles Chargers, Las Vegas Raiders, Denver Broncos, Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints
While the NFL does limit teams to six primetime games per season, it’s a safe bet we’ll be seeing the Chiefs under the lights the maximum amount of times.
