Predicting who the Chiefs will play in primetime in 2021

On this week’s edition of ‘The Great British Chiefs Show,’ we attempted to pick out Kansas City’s games to be selected for primetime.

We are just a matter of days from the NFL’s schedule release this Wednesday. As with every year in Kansas City, all eyes will be on when the Chiefs will be playing in primetime. On this week’s edition of The Great British Chiefs Show we took our shots at predicting who the Chiefs will be playing in front of a national audience this upcoming season.

As a reminder, here are the Chiefs’ opponents for 2021:

Home: Denver Broncos, Los Angeles Chargers, Las Vegas Raiders, Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers

Away: Broncos, Chargers, Raiders, Bengals, Philadelphia Eagles, Baltimore Ravens, Tennessee Titans and Washington Football Team

Here are two of our many suggestions:

Brad’s first choice: The Cleveland Browns at GEHA Field at Arrowhead

There has been plenty of talk about the Cleveland Browns being the team next in line to the Chiefs’ AFC crown. With the instability at coach and quarterback now a thing of the past, the Browns are poised to be in a position to hang with the NFL’s elite.

There will still be some sour taste in the mouth of Cleveland fans after Baker Mayfield and the Browns failed to capitalize on the Patrick Mahomes injury in the 2020 Divisional round playoff game. Revenge will be in their minds.

Tom’s first choice: The Dallas Cowboys at GEHA Field at Arrowhead

Patrick Mahomes might have got the major contract during last years’ offseason — but it was Dak Prescott who got the big dollars this time around. These two high-earning quarterbacks have yet to face each other in their young careers, so I feel confident in picking this particular matchup to be played under the night sky of Kansas City.

With so much offensive talent potentially on show, this feels like a no-brainer — especially when the Chiefs' other NFC East opponents offer very little in terms of building a marquee matchup.
