The Kansas City Chiefs 2016 preseason schedule is near. The KC Chiefs will host Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks in their first preseason game on Saturday. It’s a rare 3:30 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) preseason game. Andy Reid said he doesn’t remember ever playing a Saturday afternoon preseason game.
Alex Smith and the Chiefs starters are expected to play approximately the first quarter. It could be a little shorter depending on the exact timing. Then Nick Foles will lead the Chiefs second team in the second quarter. The plan after that is for the third team to take the second half with Tyler Bray, Aaron Murray and Kevin Hogan all potentially getting reps. At training camp, Bray has been the leader of this group so he could see the most snaps. Reid says he wants to get everyone into the game but don’t hold him to it.

What are we looking for from the Chiefs? I want to see how Nick Foles and Tyler Bray do. Foles hasn’t been here long but is already the No. 2 while Bray has had a solid camp. I want to see the Chiefs pass rush without Justin Houston, who is recovering from ACL surgery. Houston could be out for a while so this is probably the No. 1 question with this team.

What I REALLY want to see is Tyreek Hill, the Chiefs speedy fifth round pick. He has torn it up at training camp. It’s impossible to miss his speed. The big question at camp has been whether that will translate to a real game. He’s the player you’re going to want to watch and you could be seeing him right away, perhaps on the initial kickoff return team.
Game day is close...
