2013 NFL Schedule Release: Chiefs Schedule Coming Thursday

Casey Sapio-USA TODAY Sports

The 2013 NFL Schedule will be released Thursday, April 18th at 8 p.m. eastern time.

It was thought the schedule would come out this evening but the NFL shot that idea down because they needed more time to sort everything out.

Because of the way the NFL schedule is determined, we already know which teams the Kansas City Chiefs will be playing, we just don’t know what order they will play them in. We also don’t know when the games will be and which ones, if any besides the guaranteed Thursday night game, will be in primetime.

Here is the list of opponents:

Home: Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Cleveland Browns

Away: Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins, Buffalo Bills

It is hard to say this is an easy or difficult slate of teams considering the Chiefs were so bad last year they could barely beat anyone.

If we look at it with the notion that KC will be greatly improved, say a team that has a shot at 9-7 or 10-6, then I would say this is a pretty average NFL schedule. Not too hard or too easy.

Games against the Broncos (X2), Texans, Redskins, Colts and Cowboys could all be pretty tough. The Chiefs seem to play the Bills every year and no matter how bad Buffalo is, KC seems to always lose to them.

What do you think, Addicts? Will KC get any extra primetime games?

    I hope so. Seeing as we play the Cowgirls, I wonder if that could be a potential primetime game (if not Thurs. night). In regards to buffalo, and as a cherished memory from my childhood…Buck Fuffalo.

      Darn, it’s in KC, so it wont be the Thanksgiving game.

      • Travis Forsyth

        I know right? i was disappointed about that to, I’d love nothing more than to watch kc on thanksgiving…

  • Priest4Prez

    Our Monday night games the last Three years have been pretty interesting; Patriots game included, so we should get one…probably against the Broncos so ugh. I liked the divisional games on Thursday night football last year.

    • BoiseChiefPotato

      I can see a divisional Game on the opening Monday night. If I remember correctly, the last four or so years have had AFC west divisional games for the second opening MNF game.

      • Travis Forsyth

        i agree with steve on this one. other than our one promised Thursday night game, I highly doubt we’ll be on primetime….never know though.

  • steve james

    Primetime? Primetime?? 2-14 and you talking about Primetime?? “You got to play to win the game!!” I don’t think we will get any additional in all seriousness.

  • ArrowFan

    I would love a home Monday night game against Dumbver. Preferably the last game of the year that decides who wins home field in the playoffs.

  • Michael Shaw

    We have only lost to Chan Gailey-led Buffalo teams. I don’t recall us having a problem beating them before he coached the team. It was like his way of paying us back for kicking him to the curb in Haley’s first year!!

    Reid ~vs~ Philly could bring some interest..
