2024 NFL season kicks off in 100 days

The 2024 NFL season kicks off in 100 days.

The countdown to the 2024 campaign is poised to finally tick below the triple digits as we plow toward the Kansas City Chiefs raising their opening night banner on Thursday, Sept. 5.

NFL schedule makers provided a whopper of a kickoff matchup, pitting Patrick Mahomes' Chiefs against Lamar Jackson's Baltimore Ravens in a 2023 AFC Championship Game rematch.

Last week, Jackson downplayed facing K.C. to start the season.

"I really don't care who we play; it really didn't matter," Jackson said, via the team's official transcript. "At the end of the day, our goal is to make it to the Super Bowl. We lost to them in the playoffs. Just us beating them in the regular season doesn't really do anything; it just helps us keep stacking up wins to hopefully make it to the playoffs if anything to try to get in that same position again and hopefully be successful. It really doesn't matter who we play [in the] first game; obviously it's the Chiefs, but I really didn't care."

The Chiefs are the club every team in the AFC is attempting to overthrow. K.C. has been to four of the past five Super Bowls and at least the conference title game in each of Mahomes' six seasons as the starter.

In 100 days, the Chiefs will raise their third Super Bowl banner in five seasons as they attempt to become the first team in NFL history to win three consecutive Lombardi Trophies.
