The Chiefs took as long as you possibly could to away the Falcons on Sunday, but with the win the Chiefs clinch the AFCs top seed. Only the top seeds in each conference get byes this year opposed to the top 2 seeds.
The Kansas City Chiefs were a no surprise favorite to get the bye especially winning their last 10 games. I would imagine Patrick Mahomes gets some rest next week, but with a bye in the first round, I would expect him to play at least a half of the next game.
The Chiefs are firing on all cylinders for the most part, and they look like they are poised to make a run at defending their title, I don’t see a team in the AFC to stop them from reaching the Super Bowl.
