With their scheduled contest in Frankfurt, Germany, the Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins came into their Week 9 battle poised to become the first team to win games in four different countries. On the other side of their 21-14 victory on Sunday, the Chiefs now hold the title for wins in the most countries in the NFL.

WIth their win on Sunday, the Chiefs have now won NFL games in the U.S.A., Mexico, England, and Germany.

Even the weird NFL records are falling to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Wins in the U.S. are a regular occurrence for Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, so that's nothing new there. Back in 2015, the Chiefs traveled to London to take on the Detroit Lions in an international exhibition at Wembley Stadium in front of 83,000 spectators and they steamrolled their opponents in a 45-10 win. Some Chiefs fans might remember the incredible rushing performance that day as Mahomes, Charcandrick West, Spencer Ware, and De'Anthony Thomas all had scores on the ground.

For their win in Mexico, the Chiefs traveled to Mexico City in 2019 to face the Chargers in a primetime matchup on Monday Night Football at Azteca Stadium in front of 76,000 fans. This game was much closer, a 24-17 win for K.C., and rather ugly. Philip Rivers threw four interceptions that night, including one to Derrick Nnadi.

On the surface, the record is silly because teams rarely play outside of the United States, so it's not as if it's a benchmark that says a lot about a particular franchise. It's almost akin to awarding someone a certificate for the most Rubik's cubes solved on a skateboard. (Yes, that's a real thing.) Still, it's a fun anecdote to put out there, a further symbol of just how often the Chiefs have won games with Andy Reid at the helm.

Now the only question is which country is next?
