Check out Andy Reid's reaction to the schedule here. Also make sure you see our first CHIEFS SCHEDULE PREDICTION of the year!

The Chiefs only have seven home games this year as one of their home games will be in London this year against the Lions. Per the NFL's custom with international games, the Chiefs have a bye after that game.

Primetime games: 3

The Chiefs have back to back primetime games with the Broncos on Thursday Night Football in Week 2 and the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football in Week 3. The Chiefs will also travel to San Diego to face the Chargers on Sunday Night Football in Week 11.

Over / under win total: 8.5

That's what Vegas has the Chiefs at entering the 2015 season.

Strength of schedule: 7th

Here is the full strength of schedule.

This is based on how the 2014 season ended and as you know each team changes from year to year so this probably won't be the same strength of schedule at the end of the season.

Chiefs preseason schedule

Week 1: at Arizona Cardinals (August 13-17)
Week 2: Seattle Seahawks (August 20-24)
Week 3: Tennessee Titans (August 27-30)
Week 4: at St. Louis Rams (September 3-4)

All-time record vs. 2015 opponents

Broncos: 56-53
Chargers: 54-54-1
Raiders: 56-51-2
Browns: 11-11-2
Steelers: 9-20
Ravens: 3-3
Bengals: 13-14
Bills: 19-23-1
Texans: 3-3
Bears: 5-6
Lions: 7-5
Packers: 7-2-1
Vikings: 6-4

The NFL schedule is formulaic. We know 14 of the 16 opponents each year before it comes out. The Chiefs will play the AFC West teams twice each year, which makes up six of the games. They will also play a rotating AFC and NFC division, which makes up eight more games. The Chiefs will also play the teams in the other AFC divisions who finished in the same spot as them in the standings. That makes up all 16 opponents on the schedule each year.
