By Matt McMullen –

The Kansas City Chiefs will find themselves on the national stage at least five times in 2022.

The Chiefs’ prime-time slate next season includes one appearance on Thursday Night Football, three on Sunday Night Football and one on Monday Night Football. That list could potentially grow, too, when flexible scheduling kicks in later in the year.

Three of those games will take place at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, beginning with a Week 2 bout against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday Night Football. The Chiefs will then take on the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football at home in Week 5 before playing the Tennessee Titans in Week 9 on Sunday Night Football.

Kansas City will be on the road for the other two contests, traveling to Tampa Bay to play the Buccaneers in Week 4 on Sunday Night Football before heading to Denver for a Week 14 matchup against the Broncos on Sunday Night Football.

Here’s a look at the Chiefs’ full prime-time schedule (home games are listed in bold).
