The Kansas City Chiefs have unveiled their complete preseason schedule as well as the rest of the NFL for fans making plans to see Patrick Mahomes as soon as possible.
The National Football League posted the complete offseason schedule for 2019 on Wednesday, which means fans finally know the exact time of dates of games that will be played largely by players who will be cut by the first of September.
Just kidding! The preseason is exciting because it means real competitive football is not only being played and even better meaningful games are on the way. For those wanting to see how roster battles are playing out each week, the Kansas City Chiefs preseason schedule is now clear, beginning on Saturday, August 10, with a game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Chiefs will play four total teams including hosting two home games at Arrowhead against the Bengals to open things up and then the 49ers in the third week of the preseason. They’ll also travel to Green Bay to play the Packers in the final tune-up before the regular season and to Pittsburgh in Week 2 which should be competitive despite the preseason vibe. It will be interesting there to see how many reps Steven Nelson gets against his former franchise.
The most important game of any of these, if you can call it important, is the final tilt against Green Bay because both teams will play again around the midpoint of the regular season. However, given the late placement in the preseason, the competition will likely feature very few starters and certainly nothing in the way of each team’s game plan to give much away. Still if there’s any sort of scouting that can happen, it’s the only preseason contest presenting any such opportunity.
