The end of the NFL regular season means opponents are set for the 2016 season based on the league’s scheduling formula. Dates and times won’t be known for months, but based on the 2015 standings, here’s a breakdown of the Chiefs’ opponents next season.

Keep in mind at least one of three NFL teams probably is moving to Los Angeles next season, and two of those possibilities are in the AFC West, the Chargers and Raiders.

Also, the Chiefs’ draft position won’t be set until after the playoffs. Among non-playoff teams, the Titans will draft first, the Browns second.

Chiefs’ home games in 2016:

Raiders

Chiefs’ away games in 2016:
