KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs will have to get used to playing away from Arrowhead Stadium.

Kansas City opens the season at home against Tennessee on Sept. 7, and then has just one more home game over the first seven weeks — the Patriots visit on Sept. 29.

Otherwise, the Chiefs will be taking trips to Denver, Miami, San Francisco and San Diego along with having a week off during the first half of the season.

The NFL announced the schedules for all teams Wednesday night.

If the Chiefs can navigate their early road swing, they’ll have an opportunity to finish strong at home. They welcome cross-state rival St. Louis on Oct. 26, and play home games against Seattle, Denver and Oakland before wrapping the regular season against San Diego on Dec. 28.
