Must read

The leaks are over, the 2024 NFL schedule has been released! 

Now that we have the full 272-game regular season schedule, here are a few highlights: 

  • Chiefs will host Ravens in NFL opener. Kansas City will be kicking off the 2024 season by hosting Baltimore in a rematch of the 2023 AFC title game. 
  • Chiefs will play on six of the seven days of the week. The only day of the week that won’t have a Chiefs game this year is Tuesday. Thanks to their Black Friday game against the Raiders and their Wednesday Christmas game against the Steelers, Kansas City will have at least one game on six different days. 
  • The annual triple-header on Thanksgiving Day will open with the Bears at Lions followed by Giants at Cowboys. The Dolphins will then travel to Green Bay for the Turkey Day nightcap. 
  • The NFL is also giving us a doubleheader on Christmas Day. Not only will the Chiefs be facing the Steelers in a 1 p.m. ET game on Dec. 25, but the NFL is also giving us a 4:30 p.m. ET game where the Texans will be hosting the Ravens. 
  • Tom Brady’s first game as a broadcaster will be in Cleveland. Brady will be taking over the No. 1 announcing job with Fox this year and his first game will be coming on Sunday, Sept. 8 when the Browns host the Cowboys.
