Chiefs Pre-Season Schedule

The Chiefs will be on prime-time during the pre-season, if there is one, as the NFL released its schedule for the 2011 pre-season.

On Friday, August 12, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will visit Arrowhead Stadium to face the Chiefs. The game will be broadcast by the FOX network with a 7 o’clock kickoff for the national TV cameras.  That’s the opening game of the four-game schedule for the Chiefs that will see them face the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers twice.

Week No. 2 will have a Saturday night game in Baltimore on August 20th.  In the third week of the pre-season, the Chiefs will host St. Louis in the Governor’s Cup game on Saturday, August 27th.

And to finish up the pre-season, the Chiefs will travel to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers on Thursday, September 1. They will also face the Packers during the regular season. Dates and times on the 16-game “real” season are expected to be announced by the end of the month.

Right now, dates and times of the last three Chiefs pre-season games remain fluid.

The NFL’s pre-season schedule is set to begin on Sunday, August 7 with Chicago and St. Louis facing off in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio.

Two other AFC West teams have prime-time games during the pre-season: San Diego hosts Seattle on Thursday, August 11 on ESPN and then Sunday, August 28 with the New Orleans Saints facing the Raiders in Oakland on NBC.

All 12 teams that made the playoffs in the 2010 season have nationally televised pre-season games.
