The Chiefs get a big lead and sit on it while the Dolphins come back to make it seem a little close. But it really wasn’t that close. -Joel Thorman

Dolphins 14 Chiefs 35

The Chiefs defense is surging and Jay Cutler is going to run into a buzzsaw on Sunday. The Chiefs offense is continuing to grow and perform well under Matt Nagy's play calling. I see a Chiefs team that continues to build on it's recent successes and heads into the playoffs playing like they did at the start of the year. -Gary McKenzie

Dolphins 13 Chiefs 34

I'm a believer in the Chiefs again, at least to the extent that I think they can beat a mediocre team like the Dolphins. The defense is back to getting pressure, the corners are playing well, and the offense has really started to click again. I think the Chiefs will continue to raise our hopes at their chances of making noise in January. -Seth Keysor

Dolphins 24 Chiefs 24

The Chiefs should be focused and determined playing with some swagger after the last two weeks. They'll want to clinch at home this week and hit the playoffs on a high. That might include a Patrick Mahomes debut next week and rest for some other starters. No room for letdowns against Miami, they'll get a lead early and hang on to win. -Matt Stagner

Dolphins 24 Chiefs 31

Saying 2017 was a roller coaster ride for the Chiefs would be a grave understatement.

  • The Chiefs are hands down the best team in the National Football League.
  • The Chiefs are one of the worst teams I have ever seen, and they are not going to make the playoffs.
  • The Chiefs are definitely going to win the AFC West.

These are all things I have said and thought throughout the 2017 Chiefs season, the craziest part about it is how true each of the statements felt at the time. Despite blowing a 5-0 start, the Chiefs are playing their best football at the right time of the season and the Miami Dolphins should not be a problem for what now appears to be a fixed offense and defense. I think the Chiefs storm out to an early lead, and Miami creeps back in before the Chiefs shut the door. -Pete Sweeney
