The 2024 NFL playoff field is set and the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Miami Dolphins in the wild card round. The game will take place in Kansas City at 8 p.m. ET and will be on Peacock exclusively.

The forecast calls for bitterly cold conditions and blustery wind. It’s still early, but that cold front is going to hit and hit hard. The Dolphins, in their history, have not fared well in similar conditions.

The Chiefs beat the Dolphins earlier this season in a game in Germany, 21-14. That game was back in Week 9 and the Chiefs held Tyreek Hill to 64 receiving yards and scored on a fumble return.

Here’s a look at the opening odds of this matchup between the Chiefs and Dolphins in the wild card round of the 2024 NFL Playoffs. Odds courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
