Chiefs schedule 2020: Dates, game times, opponents, and more

The day has come. Let’s talk about the Chiefs’ 2020 schedule.

The biggest game is Week 3 against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football: Ask Las Vegas (and we’re talking about the city, not the team), and the Ravens are the only team close to the Chiefs when it comes to odds to win Super Bowl LV. The quarterback matchup pits the last two NFL MVPs in Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson against each other. In his career, Jackson has just three regular-season losses, and two have come against the Chiefs. The Ravens will try to avenge a disappointing 2019 finish by knocking off the reigning Super Bowl champions early on their home turf. Close behind: Week 12 at Tampa Bay, Week 15 at New Orleans.

Rapid analysis

For the second season in a row, the Chiefs have the maximum of five scheduled primetime games. They will have an opportunity to get one more primetime game before the end of the season via flex. All five of the Chiefs primetime games fall within the first 13 weeks of the season. The Chiefs only have six Noon games on their schedule, a reflection of having one of the best players in the game in Patrick Mahomes and being the reigning Super Bowl champions.

Strength of schedule

The Chiefs play the 18th-toughest schedule in the league in 2020, according to CBS Sports (full rankings based upon 2019 win percentage).
