On Saturday evening, the Kansas City Chiefs will play their first game of the postseason: a Wild Card Weekend matchup against the Miami Dolphins on GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) with Mike Tirico and Jason Garrett on the call. The game will be broadcast live on the Peacock streaming service — and on KSHB/41 and WTVJ/6 in Kansas City and Miami.

The Chiefs finished the regular season with an 11-6 record following their 13-12 win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday afternoon. The Dolphins also enter the playoffs at 11-6 after closing their season with a 21-14 loss to the Buffalo Bills on “Sunday Night Football.”

The two teams have already met once this season. In Week 9, Kansas City was the “host” team for an International Series game against Miami at Deutsche Bank Park in Frankfurt. Germany. After beginning the week as 2.5-point favorites, the Chiefs ran out to a 21-0 halftime lead before holding on for a 21-14 win.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Kansas City has opened as a 3.5-point favorite in Saturday’s matchup.
