While the Chiefs may not have been a part of divisional playoff weekend, they got a preview of the competition to expect for next season.
So 5 of the 8 teams that played this weekend are on the #Chiefs schedule next season. All 4 that play next week as well.

Obviously the Chiefs will have their usual division matchups with the Denver Broncos and San Diego Chargers, but they will play the AFC East and NFC West as well. That means they will get to play the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, and San Francisco 49ers. The Patriots and Seahawks will travel to Arrowhead, while the Chiefs will get to experience the new Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco.
Fans were quick to compare the 2014 schedule to the one from 2013, which some called particularly easy.
The #Chiefs will have to face all 4 AFC & NFC Championship teams. That alone makes next year's schedule that much more difficult.

Chiefs play the Patriots, Broncos, Seahawks and 49ers next year. All of them are still in the playoffs. I think we have the hardest schedule

That schedule’s opponents though is fully listed here.
2014 for Kansas City may not be affected by the results of the Jovan Belcher case.
