The Kansas City Chiefs open the preseason versus Houston Thursday before the regular season begins September 9th against the Chargers. Chiefs Radio Network Executive Producer Dan Israel says a young Kansas City squad faces early challenges.
Israel highlights weeks two through seven. Kansas City travels to Pittsburgh September 16th then hosts an improved San Francisco team week three. The Chiefs later visit the Broncos before games opposite last year’s AFC Championship participants Jacksonville and New England.
Second-year quarterback Patrick Mahomes replaces veteran Alex Smith, who the Chiefs shipped to the Redskins. Israel indicates Kansas City remains the team to beat in what he views as the conference’s top division.
The Chiefs and Raiders meet in weeks 13 and 17. Israel comments on the Raiders future relocation to Las Vegas.
Israel spoke with Regional Radio’s Kyle Hill at the Clinton Rotary Club in July. Tune into 99.9 The Captain to hear Kansas City Chiefs football. Pregame coverage starts Thursday at 6pm.
