"April is an exciting time of year for us," Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. "Along with the schedule release and the NFL Draft, we also get our first opportunity as a team to get back to football. After seeing our schedule today including three primetime games, I know Chiefs Kingdom will be as energized as I am come September."
