The NFL released the Kansas City Chiefs schedule on Wednesday, May 12. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the Kansas City Chiefs are officially set to kick off their 2021 season at home against the Cleveland Browns at 4:25 p.m. ET. Their first divisional game will be in Week 3 at home against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Kansas City finished last season with an NFL-best 14-2 record. The reigning champs rattled off four straight wins before being upset by the Las Vegas Raiders. Patrick Mahomes and company didn’t lose again until the final week of the regular season when they benched their starters to prepare for the playoffs and got blown out by the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chiefs are expected to run over the competition again in 2021 thanks to its explosive offense, and they have a good chance to finish with the NFL’s best record for the second year in a row.

All times listed are Eastern.
