2024 NFL schedule release: Best game from each week, including Chiefs vs. 49ers Super Bowl rematch

2024 NFL schedule release: Best game from each week, including Chiefs vs. 49ers Super Bowl rematch


The 2024 NFL schedule is officially here. The league announced all 272 regular-season matchups Wednesday, and the opening week of action is chock-full of marquee contests, including the Kansas City Chiefs‘ opener against the Baltimore Ravens, and the Philadelphia Eagles‘ historic clash with the Green Bay Packers in Brazil. But Week 1 is just the start.

Here’s our take on the top matchup from each and every week on the 2024 schedule:

Date: Monday, Sept. 9 | Time: 8:20 p.m. ET | TV: ESPN, ABC

Aaron Rodgers‘ long-anticipated return under the bright lights of Monday night, up against his childhood team? Brock Purdy with a chance to once again affirm his place among the NFL’s top quarterbacks, and kick off San Francisco’s bid to return to the big game? This one’s made for prime-time.

Week 2: Bengals at Chiefs

Date: Sunday, Sept. 15 | Time: 4:25 p.m. ET | TV: CBS

A rematch of both the 2021 and 2022 AFC championships, this will pit a presumably healthy Joe Burrow against Patrick Mahomes for the first time since that most recent conference title matchup.

Week 3: Ravens at Cowboys

Date: Sunday, Sept. 22 | Time: 4:25 p.m. ET | TV: Fox

Good, bad or something in between, America’s Team is always a dazzling draw, and Jerry Jones’ squad could be under even more pressure this year thanks to the uncertainty of Dak Prescott’s future. The Ravens, meanwhile, boast the reigning MVP in Lamar Jackson, now paired with Derrick Henry.

Week 4: Bills at Ravens

Date: Sunday, Sept. 29 | Time: 8:20 p.m. ET | TV: NBC

Lamar. Josh Allen. What more must be said? This is a prototypical AFC fireworks show for Sunday night.

Week 5: Cowboys at Steelers

Date: Sunday, Oct. 6 | Time: 8:20 p.m. ET | TV: NBC

Pittsburgh may or may not be ready for a real playoff run after welcoming both Russell Wilson and Justin Fields to the remade quarterback room, but Mike Tomlin’s old-school ruggedness makes for an intriguing contrast with the flashy and splashy Cowboys. This could be a prime spot for a prime-time upset.

Week 6: Lions at Cowboys

Date: Sunday, Oct. 13 | Time: 4:25 p.m. ET | TV: Fox

Dallas again? Sure. But the real draw here is probably Detroit, which will be angling to avenge last year’s narrow defeat to the Cowboys, while also working to return to — and get past — the NFC championship.

Week 7: Chiefs at 49ers

Date: Sunday, Oct. 20 | Time: 4:25 p.m. ET | TV: Fox

A midseason rematch…
