The Kansas City Chiefs are on the outside looking in at the current NFL playoff picture. It's unfamiliar territory for KC in recent years, but the team appears to have taken a step back on both sides of the ball to begin the year.

Things aren't going to get any easier for this team after they got back to .500.

The Chiefs are the only team in the league who aren't currently set to face a team with a losing record to close out the season. That's remarkably bad luck for this struggling squad, and they'll have to turn things around quickly if they're to avoid missing the playoffs.

KC snuck out of Monday Night Football in Week 8 with a 20-17 win, but that effort likely won't get them past the likes of the Green Bay Packers, Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Chargers in the coming weeks.

Hopefully Patrick Mahomes can snak his current seven-game interception streak in Week 9 against Green Bay. The Chiefs are narrow 1-point favorites in that matchup, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
