The game

The Kansas City Chiefs play their final road game of the regular season against the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football. Kickoff is set for 7:20 p.m. The contest will be broadcast by NBC — locally on KSHB/41.

With a 10-4 record, the Chiefs have already clinched their fourth-consecutive AFC West title and playoff berth. If they can win their last two regular-season games, they could have a chance for a first-round bye. The team has won four in a row — most recently a 23-3 home victory against the Denver Broncos.

After winning the NFC North last season with a 12-4 record, the Bears now stand third in their division — and are out of the playoffs — at 7-7. After winning three in a row, the Bears were defeated by the Green Bay Packers 21-13 at Lambeau Field last weekend.

The Chiefs are led by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who is the reigning NFL MVP. He’s struggled with injuries in his second season as a starter — missing two games after suffering a dislocated kneecap in Week 7 — but looked more like his old self against the Broncos last Sunday. During a snowstorm at Arrowhead, he completed nearly 80% of his passes for 340 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

Drafted second overall in 2017 — eight spots ahead of Mahomes — Mitchell Trubisky is in his third season as Chicago’s starter. After taking a step forward in 2018, he’s struggled this season, completing just 63% of his passes for 2,774 yards, 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions for a passer rating of 84.2.

Both teams are fielding good defenses. The Bears have allowed just 18.1 points a game, which ranks third in the NFL. The Chiefs rank 10th — allowing 20.3 points a game — but in their last four games, they’ve led the league by allowing 11.3 points a game and a cumulative passer rating of 58.3.

The two head coaches could hardly know each other better. Chicago coach Matt Nagy — a college teammate of Chiefs general manager Brett Veach at Delaware — began his NFL coaching career in 2008 as an intern under Philadelphia Eagles head coach Andy Reid. When Reid took the job with the Chiefs 2013, Nagy came with him, spending two seasons as Kansas City’s quarterbacks coach and two more as offensive coordinator before being named the Bears’ 16th head coach in 2017. The two coaches have never faced each other in a regular-season game.
