KANSAS CITY, Mo.  The National Football League announced on Thursday the regular season schedule for the 2018 season. The Kansas City Chiefs will be featured in five primetime television games.

“I always look forward to this time of year, getting our players back in the building, getting back to football, and then on top of that we get to see how our schedule sets up and start our preparation,” Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. “We’ve got a lot of work to get done before September 9th. I’m excited to get started and I know Chiefs Kingdom will be supporting us the entire way.”

Kansas City will kick off its quest for a third-straight AFC West title with back-to-back road games against the Los Angeles Chargers and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Chiefs have won eight consecutive contests against the Chargers. A victory against Los Angeles on Sept. 9 would mark the longest consecutive win streak against the Chargers in team history. The Chiefs return home to Arrowhead Stadium on Sept. 23 to face the San Francisco 49ers in the club’s home opener. Kansas City’s first primetime contest is on Oct. 1 against the Broncos in Denver. The Chiefs have won five consecutive matchups against the Broncos.

After a visit from the Jacksonville Jaguars on October 7, Kansas City will face the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on NBC’s Sunday Night Football on October 14. The Chiefs will take on the Bengals and Broncos at home before traveling to Cleveland on November 4. The Chiefs face the Arizona Cardinals at home on November 11, followed by a Monday Night Football matchup against the Los Angeles Rams in Mexico City on Nov. 19.

Following the club’s Bye Week on November 25 the team will travel to face the Oakland Raiders on Dec. 2. The Chiefs are 8-2 against Oakland under Head Coach Andy Reid. The final quarter of the season features a home game against the Baltimore Ravens on Dec. 9, before a Thursday night contest at Arrowhead Stadium versus the Chargers on Dec. 13. The Chiefs then travel to Seattle for their second Sunday Night Football contest of the season, facing the Seahawks in primetime on December 23.
