BALTIMORE -- The Baltimore Ravens will get a rematch with the Kansas City Chiefs in the first game of the 2024 NFL season after the team knocked Baltimore out of Super Bowl contention last year.

The game will take place Thursday, Sept. 5, at 8:20 p.m. at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. 

While the full NFL schedule is expected to be released Wednesday, the iconic rematch is sure to be a notable moment for Ravens and Chiefs fans alike.

Once again, fans will get to see two-time MVP quarterback Lamar Jackson face Patrick Mahomes, who's currently 4-1 against Jackson in his career.

Baltimore will have some new additions when they face the Super Bowl champions, including running back Derrick Henry, who joins the Ravens after eight seasons with the Tennessee Titans. 

Henry, a four-time Pro Bowler, rushed for 1,000 yards in five of his previous six seasons, including last year, when he ranked second in the league with 1,167 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns.

The 2023 AFC Championship game was the most watched AFC Championship game ever, according to the NFL. In that game, the Chiefs beat the Ravens 17-10. 

More than 55 million people watched the game on television, with viewership peaking at 64 million.
