    The Patriots may be the biggest beneficiaries of the Broncos’ loss to the Chargers on Thursday night. With the loss, the Broncos fell to 11-3. That means the 10-3 Patriots, who own the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Broncos, now just need to win their last three games to clinch home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.… Read more…

    So now since there is no tie breaker between us and the patriots if we were tied it comes down to division record?

    I just want us to win, that's really the only thing the Chiefs have any control of.

    Right now, the patriots have the tie breaker. They have a better conference record.

    See the section on breaking a tie for wild-card team (it applies to determining home field advantage as well). They have a better conference record, strength of victory and strength of schedule.

    If the Donks have to go to NE to face the Pats in the post-season, they can scratch it. But, more importantly, I predict if a healthy Chiefs squad gets a 3rd crack at the Donkeys in the post-season, then the Donkeys can scratch it.

    There it is! I'm convinced we can beat either the donks or the splats. The tough part will be getting that first playoff win. Our team is young and hasn't seen a playoff victory since christ was in diapers. Get that first playoff win and we-could-go-all-the-way!!!!
