POLL: What will the Chiefs' record be in 2007?
The Chiefs will begin and finish the season with a pair of road games, according to the schedule released by the NFL today.
The Chiefs will open with games at Houston on Sept. 9 and at defending NFC champion Chicago on Sept. 16.
The home opener is Sept. 23 against Minnesota.
The Chiefs will play six of eight games at Arrowhead Stadium during one mid-season stretch. They are scheduled for no national television appearances other than their season finale on Dec. 30 against the Jets in New York.
The game is tentatively scheduled to begin at 7:15 p.m. and be televised by NBC. The network has the option of showing a different game in that window, meaning the Chiefs-Jets game would switch to an afternoon time slot.
