On New Year’s Eve, the Kansas City Chiefs clinched their eighth consecutive AFC West Championship with a 25-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, guaranteeing themselves a postseason home game and locking themselves into the AFC’s third playoff seed.

But the team still has to play its final regular-season matchup. On Sunday evening, the league released the final schedule for Week 18’s games. It revealed that Kansas City’s road contest against the Los Angeles Chargers will kick off at 3:25 (Arrowhead Time) on Sunday.

Here’s the full schedule for Week 18:

3:30 p.m. Saturday

7:15 p.m. Saturday

Sunday early games

Sunday late games

Since the result of the Chiefs-Chargers game cannot affect postseason seeding — opening the possibility that Kansas City could rest starters before the playoffs begin — DraftKings Sportsbook has the Chiefs opening as a 1-point underdogs in the game.
