Kansas City secures home field advantage and first round bye

With a chance to get home field advantage and a first-round bye, all the Chiefs needed to do was take care of business against the Raiders. If they could pull out the victory against Las Vegas, once again, the march to the Super Bowl would be through the Kansas City. Patrick Mahomes and crew jumped all over the Raiders in the first two quarters. The Chiefs finished the half with 232 yards of total offense and a huge lead, 24-3.

Despite much success this season, the Chiefs are keen to throw away big leads. Coming out of the locker room, the message from the Chiefs was pretty simple. "Take care of the ball and make sure we keep converting downs." Kansas City came out flat in the third quarter and had a hard time converting downs, however, their defense picked up the slack and got to Jarrett Stidham a couple of times in the quarter. Isiah Pacheco scored early in the fourth to put the game out of reach. The Chiefs went on to win 31-13.

Mahomes went 18 out of 26 for 202 yards through the air, 29 yards running the ball, and a touchdown.
