Welcome to game day! The Kansas City Chiefs playoff picture is clear. If they win and the Raiders lose to the Broncos, the Chiefs will in the AFC West and be the No. 2 overall seed in the AFC playoffs, which means a first round bye. If anything else happens - the Chiefs lose or the Raiders win - the Chiefs will likely be the No. 5 seed. They could be the No. 6 seed if they lose and the Dolphins beat the Patriots.

The Chiefs are 4-point favorites in San Diego and should feel good about winning this game. They’re the better team and they have something to play for. They should win. However, these San Diego games are either blowouts or it comes down to the final seconds. One of the two.

That’s what’s at stake as the Chiefs visit the Chargers. The Raiders and Broncos play the late afternoon game too.
