KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The NFL’s Wild Card weekend lived up to its name, but it also brought clarity for the Kansas City Chiefs and their fans.
There were two overtime games and none of the four games on the first weekend of the NFL postseason were decided by more than eight points.
With the dust settled, the Chiefs (12-4) will face the Houston Texans (11-6) at 2:05 p.m. on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC Divisional Round.
The AFC South champion and No. 4 seed Texans rallied from a first-half deficit to upend the No. 5 seed Buffalo Bills 22-19 in overtime, advancing quarterback Deshaun Watson and Houston to this weekend’s matchup in KC.
That’s because sixth-seeded Tennessee upset third-seeded New England 20-13 in the other AFC Wild Card Game.
The Titans will face top-seeded Baltimore at 7:15 p.m. on Saturday.
Minnesota, the No. 6 seed in the NFC, will face top-seeded San Francisco after an upset win at New Orleans.
