[KC Chiefs.com] Entering the final weekend of the NFL season the Chiefs are still alive for a playoff berth, but their going to need a lot of help. Listed below is what must happen for the Chiefs to make the playoffs.
Kansas City clinches a playoff berth:
1. Kansas City win vs. (8-7) Jacksonville
2. Cincinnati loss/tie vs. (7-8) Pittsburgh
3. Denver loss vs. (6-9) San Francisco
4. Tennessee loss/tie vs. (11-4) New England
If all that happened the Chiefs would be one of the two wild-card teams because only Kansas City, Denver and the New York Jets would have a record of at least 9-7. The Chiefs would win a tie breaker against the Broncos because of a better record in AFC West games (the Chiefs are 4-2, the Broncos are 3-3).
