After much anticipation, the NFL has announced the Kansas City Chiefs 2012 schedule. We found out the home/away opponents back in early January and now it's time to add dates and times to those match-ups. Make sure you take a peek at Joel's thoughts on the Chiefs' 2012 opponents.
Some of the quick highlights of the schedule include facing Tony Gonzalez in Week 1, Chiefs vs. Chargers on Thursday Nov. 1, and the next week another prime time game against the Steelers on Monday Night Football.
The Chiefs and Broncos end the season in Denver for the second straight year.
Start making changes to your schedule and coming up with excuses as to why you can't possibly go to your in-laws house from September to January.
