The Kansas City Chiefs will begin their playoff journey in the Divisional Round after earning a bye during Wild Card Weekend. Their first opponent was the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are fresh off of a historic comeback win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

After beating the Jaguars in the Divisional Round, the Chiefs booked their date in the AFC Championship.

Who Will the Chiefs Play Next in the Playoffs if They Win?

With a win over the Jaguars, the Chiefs await their AFC Championship opponent as the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals are playing on Sunday. Kansas City will face Cincinnati in the AFC Championship, a rematch of last year's conference title game.

Where Will the AFC Championship Game Be Played 2023?

The NFL has added a new wrinkle to this year's AFC Championship Game. If the Bills advance to this round against the Chiefs, that contest would then be held at a neutral site in Atlanta, Georgia. This is due to Buffalo's Week 17 game being canceled, which impacted the race for home-field advantage between the Chiefs and Bills in the final weeks of the regular season.

If Kansas City is slated to play Cincinnati in the AFC Championship Game, however, then that game will be played at Arrowhead Stadium.
