The National Football League announced on Wednesday the regular season schedule for its centennial season.
As the Kansas City Chiefs enter the franchise’s 60th season, the team will be featured in five primetime television games, including two nationally televised contests at Arrowhead Stadium.
“As we embark on our 60th season as a franchise, I’m looking forward to celebrating this milestone by honoring the history and tradition of our team and our fans throughout the season,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “We were able to reach new heights as an organization last year with the tremendous support of Chiefs Kingdom and the Kansas City community. We have even bigger goals in mind heading into 2019 and we’ve already begun our preparation. Football is back, and I’m excited to kick off our 60th season with the Sea of Red.”
Kansas City will kick off its quest for a fourth-straight AFC West title with back-to-back road games against the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs are 10-2 against the Raiders under Head Coach Andy Reid and have won the last three contests.
Kansas City returns to Arrowhead Stadium on Sept. 22 to face the Baltimore Ravens in the club’s home opener. The Chiefs then hit the road again for their first visit to Detroit since 2011.
Kansas City’s first primetime contest is on Oct. 6 against the Colts at Arrowhead Stadium, a rematch of last year’s AFC Divisional playoff game in which the Chiefs won 31-13, advancing to the AFC Championship game. The Chiefs host the Houston Texans on Oct. 13 before back-to-back primetime contests, first in Denver on Thursday, Oct. 17 and then a Super Bowl I rematch at home against Green Bay on Sunday Night Football (Oct. 27).
On Nov. 3, the Minnesota Vikings come to Arrowhead Stadium in a Super Bowl IV rematch followed by a road contest against Tennessee on Nov. 10. The Chiefs take on the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football in Mexico City on Nov. 18. After the club’s Bye Week on Nov. 24, the team takes on the Raiders at home on Dec. 1, before facing the Patriots on Dec. 8. The Chiefs face the Broncos at home on Dec. 15, then travel to Chicago for Sunday Night Football against the Bears on Dec. 22.
