The Kansas City Chiefs playoff week is here. After sitting out with a first round bye on Wild Card weekend, the Chiefs are ready for the AFC Divisional round and as expected it will be the Pittsburgh Steelers coming to town after they handily beat the Miami Dolphins, 30-12. The Chiefs are slight ‘dogs in the game, which is a little surprising. I thought they would be slight favorites. The Chiefs will play the Steelers on Sunday.
The Texans and Steelers won in the AFC so they both advance out of the Wild Card round. The Texans will visit the Patriots where they are a whopping 16-point underdog. Houston has no shot against New England, who shot skate into the AFC Championship to face the winner of the Steelers-Chiefs game.
Over in the NFC, the Seahawks beat the Lions and the Packers beat the Giants. Those two will advance with the Seahawks visiting the Falcons and the Packers going to Dallas to play the Cowboys. Remember the Dez catch game? That was a Cowboys-Packers game.
After the Divisional round, we’ll know the final four in the NFL, the two AFC teams and two NFC teams who will be meeting on Sunday, January 22 for the right to go to the Super Bowl.
