Anybody care to shed some light on KC's future schedule? When the NFL realigned the divisions in 2002, I was under the impression that the out-of-conference schedules were fixed. For instance, you would play every NFC team twice per eight years, once at home and once on the road on a rotation basis.

But this year's schedule has me confused. The Chiefs went to S.F. in '02, and the 49ers played at Arrowhead in '06. And now they are returning. Likewise, the Chiefs will travel to St. Louis for the second time since '06.

The Packers and Vikings, according to the Chiefs website, will also make a return visit to Arrowhead next year despite playing here in '07. The Chiefs haven't played at Lambeau or the Metrodome since '03, and likely won't play there until '15.

Anyways, just a bit confused. Thanks for the help.

Every 8 years it resets, and this is the first year of the reset.

So even though it seems like it should go away - home - away - home, all that really matters is that in an 8 years span (2002 - 2009 / 2010 - 2017) that you play them once at home and once on the road. In 2018, the schedule will reset again.

I read somewhere late last season that for those facing the NFC West, they would travel to either Seattle OR San Francisco, not both. I don't recall why.
I will see if I can find it.

Uh.... I'm pretty sure the only thing that "rotates" is which division you're playing. Where you play each team is determined by the previous years' division standings.

THE NFL ANNOUNCED that in future years, teams will travel to either Kansas City and San Diego OR to Oakland and Denver when playing the entire AFC West, and to San Francisco and Arizona OR to Seattle and St. Louis when playing the entire NFC West. This does not affect the rotation of divisions or the games against like finishers within the conference, but can and does affect teams playing the AFC and NFC West in a given year.

Changing to an 18 game schedule will throw a lot of that out the window anyway. The schedule was a nice balance at 16, at 18 it is going to not be so even. At least that is my take at this point.

18 divided by 4 is times 32 substract 10 add 8 = all f'd up

Needed a few years to gather my thoughts.

Again, keeping it under 140 characters.

Pathetic.

Not really. It basically means you will play 3/4 of the AFC each year.

Example:

Home
Denver
Oakland
San Diego
Arizona
San Francisco
Jacksonville
Tennessee
Buffalo
Miami

Away
Denver
Oakland
San Diego
Seattle
St. Louis
Indianapolis
Houston
New England
New York Jets
