The KC Chiefs and their fans had a pretty awesome Christmas Day. It began with a playoff berth and ended with a spanking of the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football.

Christmas Day provided some great results for the Kansas City Chiefs and their fans. For one, before the Sunday night game even began, the Ravens lost, which gave the Chiefs a spot in the playoffs.

While making the playoffs was great, the Chiefs added to the presents for their fans by putting the smackdown on the Broncos on a wet, soggy night on Christmas night. Now sure, the Chiefs let the Broncos try to crawl back in it, but ultimately – They kicked them when they were down.

This was the first time that the Chiefs had swept their hated arch enemies since the 2000 season. It had been 16 years since the Chiefs had taken two games from Denver in a season and I think I speak for all of us when I say IT’S ABOUT FREAKIN’ TIME THIS HAPPENED.

In all honesty – Last season should have been the Chiefs sweeping the Broncos, but five turnovers and a late fumble game the Donkeys the win at Arrowhead on Thursday night.

It was nice to not only see Kansas City win this game by a wide margin (the final score was 33-10), but to see just how bad the Broncos offense was playing all night. By the fourth quarter, they’d honestly looked like they’d given up.

One has to think that Andy Reid was trying to stick it to the Broncos and their fans when he had Dontari Poe enter the game with under two minutes left to take the snap at quarterback. Poe did a little jump ball action and connected with Demetrius Harris in the end zone for a touchdown.

The guys on the broadcast seemed to think this was a sign of bad sportsmanship, but I say screw it. The Broncos had been beating up on the Chiefs for years now and it was nice to finally step out of the “little brother” shadow and show that we’re ready to be the better team now.

The KC Chiefs are now riding a three-game win streak over Denver, which obviously stems back to last season when they picked off Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler a total of five times. That game showed that the Chiefs could be the better team and down the Donkeys, and they showed that in true fashion on Christmas night.

Oh, and next to the victory, the best part to come from the game was that the Broncos are officially eliminated from playoff contention with this loss. The Chiefs got to be the ones to kick them out of playoff contention and that, my friends, is priceless.

So, to recap, here’s what Kansas City Chiefs fans got for Christmas:

  • Playoff Berth
  • Beating the Broncos
  • Knocking the Broncos out of the playoffs
  • Winning the game!

Speaking as someone who attended the game at Arrowhead on Christmas evening, it was one of my favorite games that I’ve been to. Everything went perfectly for the KC Chiefs and now they have to take care of business against the Chargers and hope that the Raiders choke so that they can lock up that number two seed.

What are your thoughts, Chiefs Kingdom? Did Santa do a good job this year?
