The Kansas City Chiefs still have plenty of football left with the Divisional Round of the playoffs set to kick off next weekend, but with the 2019 regular season now in the books, it's worth taking a look at the team and individual milestones that the Chiefs tallied throughout the year.
Here's a look through several of those accolades, beginning with team marks and then individual milestones.
- The Chiefs won 12 games in 2019 for the second-straight season, marking the first time in franchise history that Kansas City tallied consecutive 12-win campaigns.
- Kansas City swept the AFC West for the second time under Head Coach Andy Reid and for the third time in franchise history. The Chiefs are 27-3 against divisional opponents since 2015, which is the best five-year stretch for any team versus their own division since the AFL-NFL merger.
- The Chiefs won a fourth-straight AFC West title in 2019, extending what was already the longest streak of division championships in franchise history. Kansas City has made the playoffs in six of seven seasons under Reid, and as of next weekend, the Chiefs will compete in the Divisional Round for the fourth time in the last five seasons.
- The Chiefs went 7-1 on the road in 2019, winning at least seven road games for only the second time in franchise history (1966).
- Kansas City ended the regular season on a six-game winning streak, which is tied for the second-longest winning streak to end a season in franchise history. Since Week 11, the Chiefs have allowed the fewest points-per-game (11.5) in the NFL.
- The Chiefs posted the best third-down conversion rate (47.6%) in the NFL this season.
- Kansas City's 177 second-quarter points this season were a franchise record.

- Reid guided the Chiefs to a fifth-straight 10-win season in 2019, passing Marty Schottenheimer for the most consecutive 10-win seasons in franchise history.

- Mahomes now has 17 300+ yard games for his career, tying Kurt Warner for the second-most 300+ yard games through a player's first three seasons in NFL history.
