The 2016 NFL schedule is out and we know when the Kansas City Chiefs will be playing each of their opponents.
Without question, there are some tough stretches of this docket. On the flip side, there are pockets where Kansas City can make hay on the rest of the AFC West. Overall, this is not the hardest schedule we have ever seen. In fact, it is the easiest on paper since 2014, when Kansas City was coming off its first playoff appearance under head coach Andy Reid.
We know that the AFC West slate will be a challenge, with the Oakland Raiders looking improved and the Denver Broncos trying to author an improbable repeat of last year’s championship. All that said, it appears the Chiefs are the favorites to take the division for the first time since 2010, while the Raiders will be a threat to win double-digit games.
Here now is the 16-game schedule, in order. We denoted games that will be primetime contests, and let us know what you think of the slate in the comments below.
