Chiefs Team Grades: K.C. Offense Comes Up Short Against Stout Pittsburgh DefenseThe Kansas City Chiefs lost on Sunday night, 18-16, to the Pittsburgh Steelers in an AFC Divisional Round Playoff matchup, marking the fourth time in a row now that the Chiefs have not been able to capitalize on a playoff bye.

That's how close it was for Kansas City, which now hasn't won a home playoff game since the 1993 postseason when Joe Montana was the quarterback.
