The Kansas City Chiefs 2014 NFL schedule is now in. Read on for a list of the KC Chiefs 2014 schedule, which is the 7th hardest in the NFL, according to their opponents 2013 records. The Chiefs will get three primetime games in 2014, including two of them at the beautiful Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs website had this schedule posted then deleted it then posted it again.

Here it is:

Week 1: Tennessee Titans (Sept. 7, 12 p.m., CBS)
Week 2: at Denver Broncos (Sept. 14, 3:25 p.m., CBS)
Week 3: at Miami Dolphins (Sept. 21, 3:25 p.m., CBS)
Week 4: New England Patriots (Sept. 29, 7:30 p.m., ESPN) - MNF

Week 17: San Diego Chargers (Dec. 28, 12 p.m., CBS)
Week 18: PLAYOFFS

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said of the schedule: "We always look forward to the schedule coming out. This allows us to get started preparing for our opponents in the order we play them. Today is really about our fans. There is no question that Chiefs Kingdom will be fired up come September."

That's three primetime games for the Chiefs -- Monday Night Football against the New England Patriots, Thursday Night Football in Oakland vs. the Raiders and Sunday Night Football vs. the Denver Broncos. This means Arrowhead will be in primetime twice this season. The Chiefs-Broncos Sunday night game looks like the best on the schedule to me. It also comes when the Chiefs will have a long week following the Thursday night game the week before in Oakland. Alex Smith's return to San Francisco and the Monday nighter against New England is up there for best game, too.

The Chiefs have the 7th hardest schedule in the NFL, according to their opponents 2013 winning percentage. The Raiders and Broncos have the first and second hardest, respectively. The Chiefs home schedule is the hardest in the NFL. Suffice to say, this looks like a much harder schedule than the Chiefs 2013 schedule (which you can see here).

They will play all four of the teams in the AFC and NFC Championship games last season (49ers, Seahawks, Patriots, Broncos). That's five games against teams that I would bet some money will be competing for a Super Bowl.

The NFL schedule is formulaic so we know the opponents as soon as the regular season is over. The Chiefs schedule is made up of six games in their division -- two games each of the against AFC West teams. They play a rotating NFC division each year, which makes up four more games. This year that is the NFC West. They also play a rotating AFC division each year, adding four more games to the schedule. That's the AFC East this year. Finally, the Chiefs will play the team that finished in the same spot in the divisional standings for each of the other two AFC divisions. This year that is the Titans in the AFC South and the Steelers in the AFC North. That's what makes up the 16 games.

Below are some of the Chiefs future schedules. While the schedule is formulaic, please note that these schedules are not confirmed and things can change.
