The Chiefs won their first home playoff game in 25 years on Saturday and they’ll get a chance at another one next Sunday.
We won’t know who will be on the other sideline until the Patriots and Chargers square off tomorrow, but we do know that the Chiefs will host a conference title game for the first time in franchise history. The top seed in the AFC got out to a 17-0 lead in the first half and watched their defense overwhelm the Colts offense over most of a 31-13 win.
The Chiefs have only played in one AFC title game in their history as both of their Super Bowl trips came when they still called the AFL home. Regardless of which team advances to face them, they looked very capable of making their third visit to the big game against Indianapolis.
