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.
