Chiefs lost to the Texans at home 31-24 in week 6. Travis Kelce (knee) is active while Chris Jones (calf) is not. The Chiefs also lost star rookie FS Juan Thornhill to a torn ACL in week 17. 

For the Texans, TE Darren Fells (hip) and WRs Kenny Stills and Will Fuller are active; TE Jordan Akins and FS Jahleel Addae are inactive.

Houston was able to contain the Chiefs' offense with a lot of man coverage in week 6. KC is betting that with a healtier OL, healthier Mahomes, and healthier Tyreek Hill, they'll be more successful this time. Fuller is returning to the lineup at an opportune time for Houston - he was very effective at beating the Chiefs' secondary in week 6, but ultimately dropped 3 TDs.

It's no ordinary rat. It’s the Chief Rat.

If KC is gonna have a chance they can’t give up 3rd & 8’s like that.

Oof - that’s bad for HOU. They’re not exactly deep on the OL.

Boy was I wrong about Tennessee's linebackers.  Reticent to make any predictions...but...KC is healthy and rested and Reid is exceptional when he has extra time to prepare.  KC.

-Hyde runs the ball well (116 yards in week 6)

-KC pass rush fails to be effective without Jones

-Texans stretch the Chiefs' secondary

-Man coverage continues to be an issue for the Chiefs' offense

-Reid works his playoffs magic

I honestly have a difficult time seeing KC beating them by three touchdowns. Somebody must have thought they were making a lot of money today.

For the first time in about 5 years I can finally compliment O'Brien on a play call.  Now lets see if their Defense can hold a healthy KC.

Looked like Watson adjusted at the line.

KC appears to be putting on a clinic in attempt to explain this very thing.

Very interesting weekend in the postseason. I still can’t believe Baltimore imploded like that and it looks like KC is doing the same. 
 

But how boring would the nfl be if the perceived “better” team always won? It would be the nba essentially.

What are you talking about? These are two really good teams they would have to beat.

The crazy thing is, this game still feels close. KC can score in a hurry.

If playoff football was a 7 game series that’s exactly what would happen. There would be almost no upsets.

And two teams that have already beat KC with Mahomes this year.
