Kansas City Chiefs Release Preseason Schedule


We are one step closer to football season, and now we have an official date.

The NFL released the preseason schedule for all 32 teams today, and it includes a nationally televised game for the Chiefs. Here’s the four-game preseason schedule.

Week 1 (August 7-10): CINCINNATI BENGALS

Week 2: at Carolina Panthers, August 17

Week 3 (August 21-24): MINNESOTA VIKINGS

Week 4: at Green Bay Packers, August 28

The week two game against Carolina will be broadcast on FOX, while the other three games will be broadcast on the KCTV 5 locally in Kansas City.

This will be the fifth years in a row the Chiefs will end the preseason against Green Bay, and the second-straight year KC will not play St. Louis. The Rams thing is the most disturbing as the Chiefs cannot reclaim the Governor’s Cup in the preseason. The Chiefs will play St. Louis in the regular season, so there will be a shot at getting the cup back at some point this year.

In terms of players the Chiefs will see this preseason: Adrian Peterson, Cam Newton, A.J. Green, Aaron Rodgers, and Jordy Nelson. Should be a fun preseason to watch.

    August 28 will be a game to watch the backups of GB to evaluate who might end up being cut.

    I’ve been curious for awhile as to why we didn’t play the Rams last pre-season. Does anyone know the reasoning?

      My reasoning would be that D&R recognized the “Governor’s Cup” game to be a contrived gimmick to create a rivalry between the 2 Missouri teams. As far as I’m concerned it failed. Those games have usually been the last preseason game when starters play maybe 1 series. As bert stated, we can evaluate for the final cut down, but as for a gut-wrenching, sit on the edge of your seat game, no!

        In all fairness there’s no pre-season games that are “gut-wrenching, sit on the edge of your seat games”, lol. There fun to watch only, to get a preview of how your team might do in the regular season or do find out who’s going to make the roster. Playing the Rams at least made it seem slightly like a rivalry game and also made for a short travel for both teams, which is nice for a pre-season game.

          You, probably were not around in the days of George Allen, who considered every game, preseason, regular or playoff as being the most important game ever played by his players. On the other hand, Bud Grant didn’t even want to play any preseason game and he took more teams to the championships than did Allen. However, one favorable move by the new Chiefs is their move for training camp to St Joe instead of being up in Wisconsin. Of course, the Wisconsin one did feature more practices between the Chiefs and the Vikings, but, look at the travel time saved for fans.
