Ravens Coach Says Arrowhead Is A Tough Place To Play In January

The Kansas City Chiefs will host a home playoff game after going 7-1 at Arrowhead Stadium this year. The Chiefs have been a different team at Arrowhead this year so there's hope from a KC perspective that the home field advantage will mean something this year.

"This is going to be a tough football game," Ravens head coach John Harbaugh said, per the Baltimore Sun. "There's a reason these guys have the record they have. There's a reason they won their division. There's a reason they got a home game. It's really a tough place to play. Historically in the playoffs, it's been an incredibly tough place to play. So, we've got our hands full."

Except, recent history has not been kind to the Chiefs in the playoffs -- at Arrowhead or anywhere else. The Chiefs haven't won a playoff game since January 16, 1994 and haven't won a home playoff since the week before that.

In January 2004, it was Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts who beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead. In January 1998, it was John Elway and the Denver Broncos. In January 1996 it was Jim Harbaugh and the Colts.  The last three playoff games at Arrowhead and they've all been losses so recent history hasn't been kind to the Chiefs at Arrowhead during playoff time. 

The Ravens have been the opposite lately. In the last two years they've played a whopping five playoff games -- all on the road -- and won three of them.

The Chiefs have bucked a lot of trends this year. Ending the playoff streak would be among their biggest feats yet.
