A brief history of the Kansas City Chiefs preseason schedule

There are a few things we can learn about the preseason scheduling process that you never knew you really, really wanted to know.

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

With the Kansas City Chiefs preseason schedule set to be released Wednesday afternoon, here's a look at the Chiefs last five years of preseason games:

2013: Saints, 49ers, Steelers, Packers
2012: Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks, Packers
2011: Bucs, Ravens, Rams, Packers
2010: Falcons, Bucs, Eagles, Packers
2009: Texans, Vikings, Seahawks, Rams

There are 20 preseason games here over the last five years. A few trends that come up:

  • 17 of these games are against NFC teams.
  • The Chiefs played the Rams in years when they did not play them in the regular season. The Chiefs play the Rams in the regular season this year.
  • The Chiefs have played the Packers in the preseason finale every season since 2010.
For my preseason prediction, give me the Falcons, Eagles, Bears and Packers.
