The Kansas City Chiefs were disappointed when the Cincinnati Bengals eliminated them in last season's AFC Championship Game. They've since regrouped and even though they may not have Tyreek Hill anymore, the Chiefs are slated to be a dominant force once again in 2022.

The Chiefs will be tested throughout the upcoming campaign due to them having the hardest 2022 schedule, according to ESPN's Mike Clay. Even with that being the case, some opponents will certainly be an easier test than others.

Here's a look at the three easiest games on the Chiefs' schedule in 2022.

Kansas City Chiefs Schedule 2022

1. vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars may have made some promising changes this offseason, but that doesn't change the fact that they've had just five wins in nine of the last 11 seasons. The Jaguars shouldn't pose much of a challenge to the Chiefs, especially on the offensive side of the ball. Patrick Mahomes easily outclasses Trevor Lawrence under center and it doesn't help that the latter led the NFL with 17 interceptions in 2021. We're talking about one of the best teams versus one of the worst here, making it a near-guaranteed victory for the Chiefs.

2. vs. Seattle Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks would stand a fighting chance against the Chiefs if they still had Russell Wilson, but instead it'll be Drew Lock handling the quarterbacking duties. Right away it's tough imagining a scenario where Lock outduels Mahomes. The Seahawks also surrendered 265.5 passing yards per game, providing a juicy matchup for Mahomes, who's averaged at least 284.0 passing yards per game in each of his five NFL campaigns. Add in the fact that FanDuel Sportsbook isn't projecting Seattle to win that many games and it's easy to see why this is an easy matchup for Kansas City.

3. @ Houston Texans

Road games can be tough, but that won't be the case when the Chiefs face the Houston Texans in 2022. The Texans were one of the worst teams in the league last year and that's expected to be the case again once September rolls around. Houston takes credible playmakers on both sides of the ball and the team isn't even close to being on Kansas City's level. The Chiefs also thumped the Texans, 34-20, when they last met in 2020 and now that the latter no longer has Deshaun Watson, the deficit could be even bigger this time around.
