The Miami Dolphins & Kansas City Chiefs were one of two games that kicked off Wild Card Saturday of the NFL Playoffs today. The weather outside proved to be frightful. Because of inclement weather another playoff scheduled game (Bills vs. Steelers) was postponed until Monday afternoon.

The Chiefs and Dolphins would take the field with temperature of -4 (-27 wind chill) at kickoff. USA Today reports that Coach Andy Reid’s mustache had been covered by icicles for three quarters. Miami could not get their offense together as they only produced one passing touchdown by Tyreek Hill.

Kansas City would have kicker Harrison Butker to thank for another great playoff performance as his 4 field goals tonight would set a Chiefs postseason record. The rest of the game would see the Dolphins struggle to do anything with the ball offensively.

The Dolphins would freeze up similar to the weather they played in. Miami went 1-12 on third down conversions. Besides the touchdown from Hill in the first half, Miami would have less than 100 yards of total offense going into the fourth quarter.


With this loss the Dolphins’ season has come to a cold, bitter end. After being in control of their playoff destiny last month, Miami has seen their playoff hopes dashed in the wild card round for the second year in a row.

The Chiefs move on to the AFC Divisional Round, where a number of outcomes await the reigning Super Bowl Champions. Going to Buffalo next would be Mahomes’s first road playoff game. They could also end up staying at home to face a Houston Texans team that is on a tear in the playoffs right now.

Let us know what you think of today’s game in the comments down below.
