Five very good reasons to remain bullish on the Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have their flaws, but so do many other teams in the AFC. Here are five reasons why it is not as doom and gloom as it seems.

3. The Chiefs are good on the road

Like I said, I am banking (possibly foolishly) on the Chiefs winning out, but if they do not or if the Ravens only drop one game, the Chiefs could be looking at the first road playoff game in the Mahomes era. 

This would be uncharted territory, which could be scary but fun for Chiefs fans. Mahomes flashes greatness to us time and time again and it could be exhilarating to see him in that element. 

The factual side of this though, is not doom and gloom if this happens. Mahomes' all-time record on the road is 37-11. That is not too far from his record at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium, which is 35-10. 

Specifically this year, the Chiefs are 3-3 at home and are 4-2 on the road. A rowdy Arrowhead is always a home-field advantage, but the fact of the matter is that Mahomes and company are traditionally good everywhere they play. 

Crazy things can happen though, even if they do not get the one-seed. In 2021 the Titans achieved the top spot, but they lost early to the Bengals so the Chiefs still hosted the AFC Championship Game.
