The NFL has released their 2015 schedule, and the Kansas City Chiefs will have some interesting match-ups against the AFC West, AFC North, and NFC North.
The Kansas City Chiefs understandably came into the 2014 season with high expectations. Coming off of an 11-5 season in 2013, the Chiefs were supposed to contend in the AFC West and possibly challenge the Denver Broncos for the division title.
Things didn’t work out quite as expected.
After dropping their first two games of the season, the Chiefs piled together together a 7-1 run over their next eight games. However, they closed the season by dropping four of their final six contests and missed the postseason.
After a disappointing fade, Kansas City was forced to make some adjustments to the roster, including adding wide receiver Jeremy Macklin, and offensive linemen Paul Fanaika and Ben Grubbs. Needless to say, the Chiefs were aggressive to address their short-comings and try to improve the team for 2015.
Then again, the game isn’t played solely on the back of the roster you assemble, but also the schedule you have to endure. Each year, NFL teams play each team within their division twice and they play one AFC and one NFC division on a rotational basis. To fill in the final two spots on the schedule, the teams need to take on opponents who finished in the same position in their respective divisions.
For the Kansas City Chiefs, it looks like it will be an interesting schedule to say the least. After playing an AFC West division that held the Chiefs to a 3-3 record in 2014, Kansas City will see the NFC North and the AFC North on their schedules. Oh, and the Chiefs will also head to London as well, with a match-up against the Detroit Lions in the cards!
So what does the Kansas City Chiefs schedule look like for the 2015 season?
