KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs 23-16 win Sunday over the New England Patriots gave the team their fourth-consecutive AFC West championship.

By winning the division, the Chiefs will host at least one playoff game come January. The division title was made possible Sunday by an Oakland Raiders loss.

The win also keeps the Chiefs in the hunt for a first-round bye in the AFC. They would now own the tie-breaker against the Patriots if the two teams wind up tied.
