This Kansas City Chiefs team has been tested.
Through the ups and downs of the regular season, the Chiefs seem to have won games this season in just about every fashion imaginable, and it's created an identity of a team that's as confident as it's ever been heading into one of the most highly anticipated games at Arrowhead Stadium over the past couple of decades.
The Chiefs will host the Steelers on Sunday in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs with a 12:05 p.m. CT kickoff. (Buy tickets here)
"There are only a few teams remaining right now," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said on Monday afternoon. "They're all good football teams, and I think that's an important thing to know. You have to play good football and do what got you here.
"There is not a lot of room for error. That's just not what this time of the year is about."
The Chiefs haven't had a lot of room for error in most of their games this year, considering they had the toughest schedule in the NFL this past season among all playoff teams.
The overall combined winning percentage of the teams the Chiefs played was .508, and of the teams that made the playoffs, that proved to be the most difficult path taken to be in this position.
