The 2015 NFL Schedule has been released and fans are eagerly anticipating Week 1 action. Week 1 will not happen for a few more months, but fans can look forward to various events prior to Week 1. Voluntary workouts have already begun while fans eagerly anticipate the 2015 NFL Draft, which will start on Thursday, April 30th. While each division boasts some hotly contested rivalries, the AFC West has been one of the more underrated divisions in football. The Kansas City Chiefs failed to make the playoffs last season after an impressive 2013 campaign. Kansas City built its offense around Jamaal Charles and let Alex Smith safely manage the game. Kansas City’s wide receivers did not score a touchdown last season, but that will likely change with Jeremy Maclin in the fold. On the secondary market, Chiefs tickets will be most affordable in the league this season.
Entering the 2015 season, Kansas City’s most expensive home game will be its Week 7 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The current get-in price for Chiefs vs Steelers tickets is $59.
If the Chiefs want to contend in the AFC West, they will have to get through the Denver Broncos, who they host for Thursday Night Football in Week 2. The get-in price for Chiefs vs Broncos tickets is $57. Over the last few years, these two teams have engaged in some very entertaining games. Kansas City has the pass rushers needed to put heat on Peyton Manning while Jamaal Charles has had some huge game against Denver. Expect an emotional battle whenever these two teams square off.
Kansas City’s least expensive game will come in Week 16 against the Cleveland Browns. The get-in price for that game is just $23.
Due to salary cap restrictions, the Kansas City Chiefs had a relatively quiet offseason. Maclin provides dynamic playmaking ability to an offense that sorely needs it. Kansas City opted to cut Dwayne Bowe and AJ Jenkins, so Maclin will need a counterpart to keep defenses honest. Travis Kelce was a nice surprise last season and fans are hoping for more production next season. Entering the 2015 NFL Draft, Kansas City has a clear need at wide receiver and on its offensive line. Kansas City has been linked to Dorial Green-Beckham, Breshad Perriman, and Andrus Peat. All-Pro Justin Houston is unhappy with his contract status and will likely hold out until its resolved.
