Chiefs Season In Review: Offensive And Defensive Inconsistency Hurt Kansas City In The EndThe Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC West Division for the just the third time in the last 19 years, but the season ended once again in the Division Playoff round.

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. The Kansas City defense did its job, holding the Steelers offense out of the end zone and forcing six field goals. However, the Chiefs offense couldn't generate enough scoring opportunities of its own after a first-possession touchdown drive, and a game-tying two-point conversion in the fourth quarter was called back due to a holding penalty. 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.
Chiefs Studs And Duds: Reid Pulling All The Right Strings In Kansas CityThe Kansas City Chiefs earned a divisional-round bye in the AFC playoffs for the first time since 2003, but the playoff bye week has not been kind to the Chiefs, historically. In fact, all three prior times the Kansas City franchise had the first postseason week off, the team lost at home in its first playoff game (1995, 1997, 2003). Will it be different for this 2016 edition of the Chiefs? Only time will tell, and so much depends on how the wild-card round playoff games turn out. But Kansas City should be confident considering Head Coach Andy Reid's track record in such situations, in addition to the rising personnel on the roster that Reid put together.
