KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KSNT)- The Chiefs are the number two seed in the AFC for the 2022 playoffs and will play the Pittsburgh Steelers in the first round.

The Chiefs beat the Broncos 28-24 on Saturday, but the Titans’ Sunday victory over the Texans kept Kansas City from grabbing the number one seed and a first-round bye.

The Steelers finished the regular season 9-7-1, capped off with a 16-13 overtime win against the Ravens.

The Chiefs’ first-round playoff game will be played in Kansas City on Sunday Night Football, Jan. 16.

The Chiefs and Steelers already met once this year, that game was also in KC and resulted in a 36-10 Chiefs victory despite Travis Kelce not playing.
