Chiefs schedule release 2015: Breaking down every matchup

1 of 17

We finally have the 2015 NFL schedule available to us, and the Kansas City Chiefs have an interesting draw. After months of knowing who the opponents were but not being sure when we would see them, it is out in the open now. See below for the entire schedule, including start times and network.

Well, here is the obvious stuff. We get a terrific BYE week smack dab in the middle of the season. Losing a home game to London is rough, but getting a rest in the middle of the season is huge. It has to be tough on teams that have a BYE week in September. In fact, it would be interesting to know how many teams that have BYE weeks that early actually make a deep playoff run.

We also see that the Chiefs get four primetime games. This is always something to look forward to. Kansas City has endured mixed results in recent years. Last season, Kansas City crushed the New England Patriots 41-14 before getting beaten soundly at home by the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football, 26-16.

Stay right here for the 3,500-word schedule breakdown, game-by-game. Keep refreshing!
