Chiefs to open 2024 season, title defense against Ravens

The Kansas City Chiefs will open their attempt for a three-peat when they host the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL’s annual prime-time season opener, the league announced Monday.

The matchup, to be played Thursday, Sept. 5 at Arrowhead Stadium, is a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship Game, which the Chiefs won 17-10 before defeating the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII.

The Chiefs are playing in the Thursday night opener at Arrowhead Stadium for the third time in five seasons. They defeated the Houston Texans in 2020 and lost to the Detroit Lions in 2023. They are 2-1 in the NFL Kickoff Game since it was introduced in the 2002 season.

The Ravens lost their only previous Kickoff Game appearance when they were beaten by the Denver Broncos on the road to start the 2013 season.

The full NFL regular-season schedule is expected to be released Wednesday.
