Kansas City Chiefs Opponents 2024: Ravens and Bengals Come to Town, Visit 49ers and Bills

The full 2024 NFL schedule is not out just yet, but every team knows the opponents they will face. Who will the Kansas City Chiefs square off with in 2024?

Although the NFL has not yet released a full 2024 schedule with times and dates for the upcoming season’s games, we do know which opponents all 32 teams will face in 2024 along with the split of home and road games.

With the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2023 season now in the books, fans can start to look ahead to the next season, which begins in seven months.

Coach Andy Reid’s squad became the first back-to-back Super Bowl champions since the 2003-04 New England Patriots and will look to become the first team in NFL history to three-peat as champs next season.

Chiefs To Face Ravens, Bengals at Home

Kansas City will play seven of its 17 games against 2023 playoff teams: the Ravens, Buccaneers, and Texans at home, plus the Browns, Steelers, Bills, and 49ers on the road. In 2023, the Chiefs played eight games against 2022 playoff teams. The Chiefs will face the first, second, fourth, fifth, and seventh AFC seeds from 2023, along with the NFC’s first and fourth seeds.

The Chiefs, of course, will play home and away games with their three division rivals — the Broncos, Raiders, and the Chargers.

The AFC West schedule also includes matchups with every AFC North and NFC South team next season.

That means the Chiefs will host Baltimore, Cincinnati, New Orleans, and Tampa Bay in 2024 while playing at Atlanta, Carolina, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh.

As a division winner, Kansas City also plays the two remaining AFC division winners, drawing a home game with Houston and a road trip to Buffalo.

The home matchup with the Ravens provides plenty of intrigue. We can expect Lamar Jackson and the Ravens to remain an elite team in the AFC and one of the Chiefs’ primary roadblocks on the journey toward Super Bowl 59.

Baltimore’s defense is among the best in the NFL year after year, and Jackson is coming off of an MVP season.

The Chiefs bested the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game, so John Harbaugh’s squad should be fired up for a regular-season shot at redemption.

Assuming Joe Burrow is healthy, Cincinnati will be another good matchup. Burrow is 2-0 versus Mahomes in the regular season and 1-1 versus him in the postseason.

It looks to be a difficult road schedule with games in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Buffalo, and San Francisco jumping out.

Overall, this looks like one of the easiest schedules the team has played in recent memory. The AFC West hasn’t posed much of a challenge in recent years while the NFC South was one of the worst divisions in 2023, with none of the teams recording 10 or more wins.

On the other hand, the AFC North was one of the better divisions in football in 2023, with all four teams in contention for the playoffs until the end.
