The National Football League released its preseason schedule on Monday, and the Chiefs will travel to the West Coast for the second straight season.

The Chiefs will open the preseason at home against the San Francisco 49ers, followed by a road game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Chiefs will then travel to Seattle for a nationally televised game against the Seahawks, which will be shown by CBS at 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 25.

The NFL’s preseason games will begin on Aug. 3 with the annual Hall of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. This year, the Dallas Cowboys will take on the Arizona Cardinals at 7 p.m.
