Breaking News: Chiefs Will Face Steelers in Wildcard Round on Sunday Night

 49 replies

With the Texans failing to pull off the upset over Tennessee, the Jaguars shockingly blowing out the Colts, and the Steelers beating Baltimore, it is official that the Chiefs have the 2nd seed and will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round of the playoffs.

 

(Barring a Raiders and Chargers tie.)

 

UPDATE: The NFL has announced that the Chiefs will play on Sunday Night on NBC at 7:15.

Best outcome besides getting the 1st seed.

The first half of the season, I wasn’t sure we’d make the playoffs at all!

I agree. I’ve been beyond frustrated with this team this season but we’ve made it in. But we can’t afford to lay any more eggs.

I like that…” The league office prohibits such efforts to undermine the integrity of the game”

Really? Do they not monitor their officials?

So other than the Titans losing, this is the best case scenario right?

Our worst matchups seem to be teams that can sustain offensive drives, limiting our TOP and flipping momentum away from our offense. The Steelers have a terrible offense and we saw how that worked out for them against us recently. So glad we aren’t getting the Chargers as the 7 seed.

Side note: If the Steelers and Saints get the 7 seeds, can all NFL fans please come together and lobby to get the 12 team playoff format back? The 14 team format is really stupid and a huge downgrade imo.

We could all just lobby anyway. Hated the idea of a 7 team playoffs. The last seeds don’t deserve it.

I think with that match-up we have a real shot to get the MNFer. I’m sure ESPN wants Bens epic last season playoff run. Bahahahaha

Patriots loss would drop them to 6th seed probably heading to Buffalo for Wild card
Chargers/Raiders to Cincinnati

yeah, but like discussed in the early game thread, the league would hand down some pretty impressive penalities for collusion if they intentionally manipulated the outcome like that

The league turns the other cheek when it’s one team doing it, but both teams? No way they let that slide.

Probably.
I worry about the refs on the “Big Ben Farewell Tour”. I hope I’m wrong, but we have a history with bogus calls in the playoffs with the Steelers

Good matchup for us – that is assuming that the Chargers and Raiders do not tie.
