The Kansas City Chiefs secured the No. 3 seed with a 13-12 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 18. The Chiefs went 11-6 this season, but have not been looking up to par with last year’s Super Bowl-winning Kansas City team. Their offensive struggles cost them games against the Broncos, Raiders, and Packers, but they were able to grab a win over the Miami Dolphins at home in November. Can they do it again with elimination on the line?

2024 Wild Card round matchup

Chiefs vs Dolphins
Saturday, January 13 at 8:00 p.m.

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Miami Dolphins at Arrowhead in the Wild Card round. The Dolphins fell to the Chiefs, 21-14, earlier this season. Miami lost their grip on the No. 2 seed and a home field advantage after dropping their Week 18 matchup against the Buffalo Bills, who overtook them in the AFC East.

Patrick Mahomes passed for 185 yards and two touchdowns in the two teams’ latest meeting. Noah Gray and Skyy Moore led the teams’ receiving unit. Perhaps more significantly, the Chiefs’ defense was able to hold Tua Tagovailoa to under 200 passing yards.
