Where we stand on the Kansas City Chiefs 2015 opponents.

We already know most of the Kansas City Chiefs 2015 NFL schedule. Not the order of the games but who the teams will be. Specifically, we know 14 of the Chiefs 16 opponents for the 2015 NFL season.

The Chiefs will be playing the AFC West opponents twice, as usual, which makes up six of the games. The Chiefs this year are also playing the AFC North and NFC North, which makes up eight more games for a total of 14.

Here is what we know about the Chiefs 2015 schedule right now:

HOME: Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions (London), San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders

AWAY: Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, San Diego Chargers, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders

*NOTE: These are all unconfirmed right now until the NFL sends out the official list. There was a weird scheduling quirk a few years ago that moved a home game to an away game, so that could happen again. In other words, don't make travel plans based off this.

Remaining will be games against an AFC South and AFC East team. The Chiefs will play the team that finishes in the same spot in those divisions as the Chiefs do in the AFC West. Since the Chiefs could finish second or third in the AFC West, we still don't know who exactly they will play.

In the AFC South, the Texans are in second place while the Titans and Jaguars are both tied for third with a 2-12 record.

In the AFC East, the Bills are in second and one game ahead of the Dolphins. So this could be the eighth straight yearthat the Chiefs play the Bills.

The Chiefs went 7-9 in 2011 when they last played the AFC North and NFC North in the schedule rotation. That was coming off their 2010 division winning season so they were playing a first place schedule while this year's will be a second or third place schedule.
