The National Football League released the 2014 schedules for every team on Wednesday and the Kansas City Chiefs schedule is highlighted by a nationally-televised road game in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers. Also, the Chiefs will close out their schedule for the fifth consecutive year against the Packers at Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
Their two home dates are Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals and then former QB Matt Cassel will make his return to Arrowhead Stadium when the Minnesota Vikings come to town in Week 3.
The Chiefs pre-season schedule shakes out like this:
Week 1 – Cincinnati Bengals @ KC – Aug 7-10 (TBD)
Week 2 – KC @ Carolina Panthers (FOX-TV), Aug. 17
Week 3 – Minnesota Vikings @ KC – Aug 21-24 (TBD)
Week 4 – KC @ Green Bay Packers – Aug. 28
For the second straight year, the Chiefs will not play their long-time pre-season opponent, the St. Louis Rams during training camp, because the Rams will come to KC at some point during the regular season. The NFL pre-season begins Sunday, Aug. 3 when the New York Giants play the Buffalo Bills in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio on NBC-TV.
The regular season schedule has not been announced by the league yet. The Chiefs will begin their off-season conditioning program on April 21 and will have a three-day rookie minicamp beginning May 24. The first full-squad practice is May 27.
Then things will begin in earnest when the club reports to training camp in late July at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph.

Your Chiefs Examiner is stoked to know that Matt Cassel will be coming back to town because even though he recognized Cassel's limitations, he also knew that Cassel did everything during his time in KC with class and professionalism. Your Examiner was also hoping that former right tackle Eric Winston could come back with Cassel so that when 100 or so fans out of 75,000 boo Cassel, Winston can tell us how disgusted he is with us. Just sayin' ....
Now that your Chiefs Examiner proudly has a younger version of himself serving in the U.S. Army in Ft. Drum, NY he is even more thankful for all the men and women serving in our military. Coming from a family with generations of military vets, one of my favorite charities is the Wounded Warrior Project. If you like my articles at all and can afford a few dollars for these brave men and women, please check it out here and donate. Thank you!!
