The Kansas City Chiefs released their preseason schedule yesterday on their website, finally giving us a quick glimpse of how 2014 is going to start. Here’s the schedule as follows,
- Week 1 (August 7-10): CINCINNATI BENGALS
- Week 2: at CAROLINA PANTHERS, August 17
- Week 3 (August 21-24): MINNESOTA VIKINGS
- Week 4: at GREEN BAY PACKERS, August 28
The Chiefs will have their regular CTN (Chiefs Television Network) with KCTV 5 for their preseason coverage with all the games except the Carolina game, which was picked up by FOX. The Chiefs will have a national game in the preseason, lets hope they get one in the regular season as well. This is also the fifth year in a row that Kansas City will close the preseason against the Packers. For some reason, even before John Dorsey became GM, the Packers and Chiefs have had a mutual interest in playing each other during the preseason.
Kansas City will also get a crack at the Bengals and the Vikings, and both should be a good test for the Chiefs early on. I wouldn’t be surprised if guys like Giovanni Bernard and Adrian Peterson don’t even play in that game. Same can be said for Jamaal Charles as well.
Personally, I love the preseason as I like to watch the younger players compete as they give an indication of what kind of player they can be for the team moving forward. How about you? Do you enjoy the preseason and do any of these games intrigue you? Leave your comments below and remember Chiefs fans, were one step closer to football.
