Not only did the Kansas City Chiefs once again beat up on the division rival Los Angeles Chargers, but Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Miami Dolphins stunned a 12-3 New England Patriots team on the road in a 27-24 upset. Those results gave Andy Reid and the Chiefs the No. 2 seed in the AFC and a first-round bye. Upon realizing New England went down, Arrowhead Stadium exploded with cheers.
Enjoy it, Kansas City. You weathered some poor defensive performances and an injury to Patrick Mahomes to earn this 12-4 record. You deserve this bye in the playoffs.
