Week 13 didn't go as the Kansas City Chiefs had hoped, falling 27-24 to the Cincinnati Bengals. Thankfully, the Chiefs' division continued its struggles on Sunday, keeping them in the driver's seat.

Now Kansas City has a chance to lock up the AFC West title and a playoff spot in Week 14.

According to NFL analyst Joe Ferreira, the Chiefs will take home the division crown with a win on Sunday and loss by the Los Angeles Chargers. Kansas City is slated to face the Denver Broncos in Week 14, while the Chargers will play the Miami Dolphins on Sunday Night Football.

Though the Bengals loss stings, the Chiefs are still in prime playoff position with a 9-3 record, good enough to tie them for first in the AFC. However, the Buffalo Bills are also 9-3 and own the tiebreaker after beating KC in Week 6. If Kansas City wants home-field advantage, then this team will likely need to run the table to make sure they finish above Buffalo.

The Chargers, meanwhile, are on the verge of elimination from playoff contention after their disappointing season. They just let the lowly Las Vegas Raiders handle them on Sunday, and they'll get an even tougher matchup in Week 14 with the Dolphins' high-powered offense on tap.

FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds like the Chiefs' chances of clinching the AFC West on Sunday. Kansas City is an 8.5-point favorite over Denver, while Los Angeles is a 2.5-point underdog against Miami.
