The Kansas City Chiefs' Divisional Round game against the Cleveland Browns was headlined by an injury suffered by star quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Backup Chad Henne helped Kansas City secure the win, but there's little news on Mahomes' status for Sunday at the moment.

Kansas City Chiefs Odds to Win the Super Bowl

With the uncertainty around Mahomes, Kansas City's odds to win the Super Bowl have dipped slightly to +205, per FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL futures.

Kansas City entered the Divisional Round with +200 odds to win the Super Bowl, so it's not like the Chiefs are in a free fall. That being said, the Green Bay Packers have close the gap significantly, jumping up from +380 to +210 heading into conference championship week.

Most observers are expecting a showdown between the Chiefs and Packers in the Super Bowl, but the Buffalo Bills (+330) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+450) are hoping to spoil a potential matchup between the No. 1 seeds.

Mahomes' recovery from what's been called a nerve injury will be key if the Chiefs want to beat the Bills on Sunday. Otherwise, Kansas City's hopes will rest on 11-year veteran Chad Henne to lead them to a Super Bowl 55 berth.
