It's time to fill in those calendars with must-see TV events as the Kansas City Chiefs' schedule has been officially announced. 

The NFL has released the full schedule, giving us a list that reads like a short story of possible pratfalls and glorious successes. 

The problem is figuring out how the Chiefs figure into what will be a brilliant season. Will they surprise with a move on the playoffs like in 2010, or fall just short of the intended goal like last season.

The Chiefs' schedule, like their expectations, lay somewhere in the middle. There is no reason that this schedule should pose that much of a problem with all things being equal.

The AFC West is a mixed bag that you never know what it will deliver. The Broncos could have a Hall of Fame arm in Peyton Manning, or just some old guy that is past his prime. 

The Raiders and Chargers are always interesting clubs to dissect. There is no way of knowing if San Diego will again slink back into inconsistent measures. 

They have a couple of games that scream win in the Colts and Buccaneers and a couple that will be a tough grind from start to finish in the Steelers and Ravens.
