NFL Playoff Picture: Chiefs Will Host Ravens At Arrowhead

The Baltimore Ravens will be coming to Arrowhead Stadium next weekend. The AFC playoff picture is complete and the Kansas City Chiefs will hold the fourth seed hosting the Ravens on either Saturday or Sunday.

The Chiefs controlled the third seed heading into Week 17 but lost to the Oakland Raiders and, as the Colts won, put them in a tie with Indy for the third spot at 10-6 but the Colts own the tiebreaker with the Chiefs.

The entire AFC playoff picture is decided. The New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers are your top two seeds and both will have a first round bye. The Colts are the third seed and will host the sixth seed New York Jets. The Chiefs are the fourth seed and will host the fifth seed Ravens.

If they can win in the wildcard round, the Chiefs will travel to New England to take on the Patriots. Yes, Patriots West vs Patriots East. Eat your heart out, ESPN.

We've got a long week ahead of us, folks. The first order of business though is finding out what day and time the game will be. The options are Saturday January 8 and Sunday January 9. We should be hearing about that tonight.
