KANSAS CITY, MO – Winning a fifth straight AFC West Championship will have to wait at least until next week, but the Kansas City Chiefs secured a playoff spot with their 22:16 win over the Denver Broncos on Sunday night.
The 11-1 Chiefs will set a team record for the sixth consecutive year in the postseason. They would win the division championship by winning any of their four remaining games, including their meeting with the Dolphins in Miami next Sunday.
They would also claim the AFC West title if the Las Vegas Raiders lost one of their four remaining games. The Chiefs are half a game behind the 11-0 Pittsburgh Steelers in the race for # 1 in the AFC playoffs.
The Chiefs won their eleventh game in a row against the Broncos, a streak that dates back to 2015.
