  • The Kansas City Chiefs finished the regular season 14-3.
  • The Chiefs won the AFC West and were the No. 1 seed.
  • The AFC Championship Game will be played in Kansas City.

Led by Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs have been one of the best teams in the NFL for an extended period.

They have now made the playoffs eight straight seasons and are among the favorites in NFL betting each week.

In addition to just making the postseason, Kansas City has hosted the AFC Championship four straight years but has just two Super Bowl appearances and one win over that span.

Here’s how things went for the 2022 season.

Chiefs Playoff Seed

The Chiefs went 14-3 in the regular season and were the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

Kansas City beat the Jaguars in the divisional round and will make yet another appearance in the AFC Championship Game. They will take on the Bengals in Kansas City on Sunday, Jan. 29.

Chiefs First-Round Bye

At 14-3, the Chiefs secured a first-round bye.

The top seven teams made the playoffs, with the four division winners earning the top four seeds.

Pittsburgh and Miami finished with the same 9-8 record, but thanks to their win earlier in the year, the Dolphins won the tiebreaker.

Buffalo and Cincinnati played a 16-game schedule, as their Week 17 game was not completed following Damar Hamlin going into cardiac arrest.
