The Kansas City Chiefs have won the AFC West Conference and they will get the privilege of hosting a home game in the divisional round.
The Chiefs do not yet know who their opponent will be in the divisional round but the NFL rules dictate the highest remaining seed from the Wild Card round will get to face the Chiefs. PlayoffStatus.com gives the Chiefs a 16% chance to win the Super Bowl in 2017. This is the third best chance overall as the Chiefs only trail the Cowboys and Patriots on this list.
The Chiefs are led by head coach Andy Reid and he is looking to make his 2nd overall appearance in the Super Bowl as a head coach. The last time Reid coached in the Super Bowl was in a losing effort to the Patriots back in 2005.
The Chiefs have one of the best defenses in the league and this could be the best part of this team that nobody seems to be talking about. Eric Berry has put on a tremendous performance in 2016 and he continues to be the heart and soul of this defense.
Spencer Ware seems to the set the pace for the Chiefs on offense. If the Chiefs are able to win in the divisional round, they will only be 1 win away from playing for the Super Bowl.
