2024 Regular Season Schedule Finalized; Chiefs to Play Five Primetime Contests

The National Football League announced the regular season schedule for the 2024 season on Wednesday. The Chiefs are currently slated to play in eight standalone games, including five primetime contests, with GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium playing host to six. The reigning back-to-back Super Bowl Champion Chiefs will kick off the 2024 season and hang their Super Bowl LVIII banner on the NFL's Kickoff night against the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Sept. 5 for a rematch of last year's AFC Championship Game. This year's regular season schedule features nine games vs. opponents with winning records in 2023 and seven games vs. opponents who made the 2023 playoffs. The combined 2023 record of Kansas City's 2024 home and away opponents is 145-144-0 (.502). This year's slate features the Chiefs in contests on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Following the NFL's opening game, the Chiefs will host the Cincinnati Bengals in the second of two home games to open the 2024 season. The club then hits the road for two games, first in Atlanta for NBC's Sunday Night Football and then to Los Angeles to face the Chargers in Week 4. It will mark the first AFC West matchup as the Chiefs continue their quest for a ninth-consecutive AFC West title.

The Chiefs then return home to play the New Orleans Saints for the club's first of two Monday Night Football showdowns. The Chiefs will then enjoy their Bye Week during Week 6. It is the team's earliest Bye Week since 2016 when they had a Week 5 Bye. The Chiefs return to action Week 7 in San Francisco for a Super Bowl LVIII rematch. On Oct. 27, the Chiefs will face the Las Vegas Raiders for a Week 8 matchup. The Chiefs will come home to GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium for a two-game stretch against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on ESPN's Monday Night Football on Nov. 4 then the Denver Broncos at noon on Nov. 10.

Week 11 is an AFC Divisional Round Game rematch in Buffalo as the Chiefs take on the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 17. The Chiefs will then face the Carolina Panthers on the road on Nov. 24. The Chiefs will play on Black Friday for the first time ever, taking on their AFC West rival, the Las Vegas Raiders, at 2 p.m. on Amazon Prime Video.

Week 14 will close out the Chiefs slated primetime matchups with Sunday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. The Chiefs then head to Cleveland to face the Browns on Dec. 15 before taking on the defending AFC South champions, the Houston Texans, in Week 16 on Saturday, Dec. 21. The Chiefs will play in the first-ever Wednesday NFL game on Christmas Day against the Pittsburgh Steelers at 12 p.m. on Netflix. The Chiefs will close out the regular season by taking on the Broncos in Denver. The date and time are to be determined.

In addition to the announcement of the club's regular season schedule, the NFL also released the Chiefs preseason schedule. The Chiefs will hit the road to face the Jacksonville Jaguars for Week 1 of the preseason. The final two preseason games will be played at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, first against the Detroit Lions and the second against the Chicago Bears.
