Chiefs 2022 schedule: dates, seasons, opponents and more

The 2022 Kansas City chiefsregular season schedule is here!

Normally we’d be talking about the biggest game of the season here – but on this year’s list, it’s probably fair to identify three.

After their Super Bowl championship in 2019, the Chiefs ended two consecutive losing seasons in the playoffs. The 2022 timeline gives them two options to avenge those losses.

The first opportunity comes in the week 4 issue NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” as the Chiefs visit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during prime time. The Buccaneers dominated the Chiefs 31-9 in Super Bowl LV – a game that left an enduring bad taste on the fanbase and organization. The action of that title game was the Chiefs’ decimated offensive line. That line has since been rebuilt and replenished, which should give quarterback Patrick Mahomes a better chance in his last matchup against Tom Brady… we think.

The next opportunity to avenge a tough loss comes in Week 13 when the Chiefs visit the Cincinnati Bengals. Kansas City looked unstoppable as they started the AFC title game on a 21-3 run. His momentum didn’t last, and the Bengals’ offense returned as Mahomes put together what was probably the worst half of his young career. The Bengals reached the Super Bowl with a 27-24 victory in overtime. The Chiefs will look to reclaim their stance as a class of AFC like the Bengals to prove last year was no fluke.

There’s no significant loss for the Chiefs to get revenge on the Buffalo Bills, but the Bills will certainly feel that way when they enter Week 6. The Bills lost to the Chiefs in the playoffs in back-to-back years, first in the 2020 AFC title game and then the 2021 divisional round. Last year it hurt even worse as the Bills led by 13 seconds on the clock. Things were looking bleak for Kansas City… and you know the rest. We’ve identified three games that the Chiefs will see as their biggest games of the season; You can bet the bills only identify one.

Just behind: Every game against a redesigned AFC West division

Bits and pieces: The Chiefs open Week 1 away against the Arizona Cardinals (they reportedly started as 3-point favorites DraftKings Sportsbook).

Fast analysis

The Chiefs have five planned Primetime Games for the fourth straight season. As a reminder, teams can be limited to a maximum of seven primetime games (this change came with a move to a 17-game schedule). The Chiefs see four primetime games through Week 9 (Chargers Week 2, Buccaneers Week 4, Raiders Week 5). and Titans, Week 9) and one towards the end of the season (Broncos, Week 14). The Chiefs will play three of their five primetime games against a heavily overhauled AFC West, which is now clearly the league’s most talented division.

The Chiefs only have five scheduled Noon games. The Chiefs will play four of their last six games away from home. After a bye bye in Week 8, the Chiefs face eight AFC teams in their last 10 games, including four games within the AFC West.

strength of the schedule

According to this, the Chiefs will play the toughest schedule in the league in 2022 DraftKings Sportsbook (more here).
