Chiefs Get Niners, Packers In Pre-season At Arrowhead

The NFL released the pre-season schedules for the 2013 season and the Chiefs have an interesting quartet of teams they’ll play in the games that do not count, including one of the Super Bowl participants from February.

The schedule is:

Dates

H/A

Opponent

August 8-11

A

New Orleans

August 15-19

H

San Francisco

August 22-25

A

Pittsburgh

August 29-30

H

Green Bay

The Chiefs have not played a pre-season game in the Big Easy since 1997 and the last time they saw the Saints in August was 2007. The 49ers visited Arrowhead Stadium 10 years ago and the Chiefs and Packers played each other last year at Lambeau Field. The last time Green Bay was in K.C. for a pre-season game was 2010. The Chiefs have never played a pre-season game in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.

Exact dates and starting times will likely come when the regular-season schedule is released, supposedly on April 16th.

    I guess the NFL schedule makers wanted to temper the Chiefs expectations with a 0-4 preseason.

    I have said for a long long time now that preseason games are a waste and the risk of injury is still very high. Wasn’t it Moecki that was injured in a preseason game that completely ended his season the year before last???? I understand the point of it and all but couldn’t you figure out the same thing in a good scrimage.

    What’s difference that’s basically preseason scrimmage where they allow tackling. Its football guys get hurt can’t avoid that.

    Preseason games are just an excuse to fleece the STHs for two more games. I say flush the preseason and go to an 18 game season where all of the games count.
