Kansas City Chiefs Still In Play For Division Title, Home Playoff Game
The AFC West will send two representatives to the NFL playoffs this season as both the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs clinched spots before Week 17. Although the Chiefs would have enjoyed the Broncos losing to the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night, the Chiefs are still in play for the AFC West division title.
The Chiefs, who play the Oakland Raiders at Arrowhead Stadium Sunday, need a win paired with a Broncos loss to the San Diego Chargers at Sports Authority Field to claim first place. The Chiefs can either finish as the third seed, the fifth seed or the sixth seed depending on other results.
According to TiqIQ.com, Chiefs tickets on the secondary market have an average price of $103.20 with a get-in price of $35 for their final regular season game. Currently, if they were to finish as the third seed and host a home playoff game, Chiefs playoff tickets for January 9th (opponent to be determined) have an average price of $249.37 with a get-in price of $94.

The Chiefs extended their winning streak to nine games with their most recent 17-13 win over the Cleveland Browns at Arrowhead Stadium last weekend. After going into halftime with a 17-3 lead, the Chiefs were shutout in the second half but the defense remained firm against Johnny Manziel and the Browns offense to reach a record of 10-5.
One week prior, the Chiefs became the first team in NFL history to win eight straight games after losing five straight and completed one of the most remarkable turnaround in the sport’s history. The Chiefs and the 1970 Bengals are the only two teams in NFL history to start 1-5 and reach the playoffs.
