The Chiefs will get to turn the page quickly following their loss to the Bengals.

NFL: Kansas City Chiefs at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL released its Week 18 schedule late Sunday night, and as announced, the Kansas City Chiefs will play in the first game of the final regular-season weekend as part of a Saturday doubleheader.

The Denver Broncos will host the Chiefs at 3:30 p.m. Arrowhead Time, followed by the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the Dallas Cowboys at 7:15 p.m. in the Saturday primetime game. Both games will be aired on ESPN and ABC.

With the Chiefs’ 34-31 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, they now need to win against the Broncos and watch for a potential Tennessee Titans loss to the Houston Texans in order to clinch the AFC’s first-round bye. The Texans host the Titans at Noon on Sunday.

The weekend features seven Sunday Noon games, six games to be kicked off at 3:25 and finishes with an AFC West primetime game featuring the Las Vegas Raiders hosting the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday Night Football. The winner of Raiders-Chargers advances to the playoffs as an AFC Wild Card team.
