The KC Chiefs made it to the playoffs for the second consecutive season and are the two-seed on the AFC side. The two-seed gives Kansas City a first-round bye and an extra week to size up the rest of their possible competition.
Chiefs Kingdom was ecstatic when the Kansas City Chiefs locked up the AFC West title and the two-seed in the AFC playoffs. That two-seed means Arrowhead Stadium will play host to a postseason game in the divisional round.
Now, just who could the KC Chiefs potentially face during the playoffs this season? The other division winners were New England (AFC East; One-seed), Pittsburgh (AFC North; Three-seed), and Houston (AFC South; Four-seed) with the two Wild Card teams being Oakland (Five-seed) and Miami (Six-seed).
The only teams the Chiefs absolutely won’t see in the divisional round are the Patriots and Dolphins. The Pats earned the one-seed in the AFC, so if there is a match-up between the two, it’ll be in Foxborough for the AFC Championship Game.
As for the Dolphins, they’re the six-seed, so if they somehow beat the Steelers at Heinz Field, they’d travel to Foxborough in the divisional round. That’d be their “reward” for being the lowest seed in the playoffs.
All right, let’s check out every AFC playoff team!
