Chiefs to Play in Six Prime-Time Games in 2023

The Chiefs will regularly be featured in prime time once again next season

The Kansas City Chiefs are scheduled to find themselves on the national stage at least six times in 2023.

The Chiefs' prime-time slate this upcoming season includes the season-opener on Sept. 7, two appearances on Sunday Night Football, two appearances on Monday Night Football and one appearance on Thursday Night Football.

Three of those games will take place at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, beginning with the NFL season kickoff game against Detroit on Sept. 7. The Chiefs will then take on the Denver Broncos on Thursday Night Football in Week 6 (Oct. 12) before hosting the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 11 on Monday Night Football (Nov. 20).

Kansas City will be on the road for the other three contests, traveling to New York to play the Jets in Week 4 (Oct. 1) on Sunday Night Football before heading to Green Bay for a Week 13 (Dec. 3) bout against the Packers on Sunday Night Football. The Chiefs are scheduled to wrap up their prime-time slate with a matchup against the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football in Week 15 (Dec. 18).
