KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Chiefs released their 2014 schedule on Wednesday, and it appears an action-packed first month awaits coach Andy Reid and his squad.

The Chiefs kick things off at home against Tennessee, which will mark the return of fan favorite and Pro Bowl punt returner Dexter McCluster, who signed with the Titans via free agency in March.

After that, they will travel to Denver to face the defending AFC champion Broncos. A road trip to Miami awaits in Week 3 before the Chiefs play host to New England at home on a Monday for the first night game at Arrowhead Stadium in three years.

The Chiefs, who face four playoff teams in their first six games, also have two more primetime games. They will travel to Oakland on Nov. 20 for a Thursday night tilt against the Raiders, and will play host to Denver at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 30 for a Sunday night showdown.

“We always look forward to the schedule coming out,” Reid said in a statement. “This allows us to get started preparing for our opponents in the order we play them. Today is really about our fans. There is no question that Chiefs Kingdom will be fired up come September.”

In all, the Chiefs’ schedule features seven games against five playoff teams from the 2013 season, including games against all four conference championship game finalists. The combined winning percentage of the Chiefs’ 2014 opponents is .558, which makes this the league’s seventh-hardest schedule. One bright note — it’s still easier than divisional foes Oakland (No. 1), Denver (No. 2) and San Diego (No. 4).
