The Chiefs are still somehow alive in the AFC playoff hunt
The Chiefs' playoff chances are still very much in play, even after a five-game losing streak.
Factor out the AFC's three undefeated teams (Patriots, Bengals, Broncos) and there's a mess left. Only two teams have an above-.500 record.
The Chiefs aren't one of them. But they do now hold an all-important tiebreaker over the 4-3 Pittsburgh Steelers if they can mount a winning streak.
Their remaining schedule could push things in that direction. They have games against the Lions, Bills, Ravens, and Browns left. And they'll face the Raiders and Chargers twice.
