Do the Kansas City Chiefs have a good schedule? Or a bad one? They have the fifth easiest schedule according to the strength of schedule rankings. They open the season against the Jaguars, which seems winnable, along with the Cowboys at home (gotta represent Arrowhead). The Chiefs end with three of four on the road which is concerning. Of the Chiefs final seven games, five are against AFC West teams, which is huge.
I like the way the season starts with three winnable games. I don't like playing three straight NFC East teams. I like where the bye is, right before the final stretch of the season. I don't like playing the Broncos twice in three weeks. I like that the Chiefs have three straight home games in the middle of the season. I don't like ending the season against the Chargers because the Chiefs are awful in San Diego. I like playing the Broncos after the Chiefs have a bye week.
I'm going to say this is a good schedule. Week 17 in San Diego has me concerned but I like how it looks.
What about you? Good schedule or bad schedule?
