Chiefs to play Dolphins in wild card round of playoffs on Saturday night

The Kansas City Chiefs will officially host the Miami Dolphins in the AFC’s wild card round of the playoffs, and we now know exactly when the game will be played.

The NFL announced that the Chiefs will face the Dolphins on Saturday, Jan. 13, at 7:00 p.m. CT. The game will be streamed exclusively on Peacock. The Cleveland Browns at Houston Texans will take the afternoon spot on NBC, Peacock, and Telemundo at 3:30 p.m. CT.

The Miami Dolphins (6) are heading to GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium to face the Chiefs for the second time this season. This comes after they dropped their regular season finale at home to the Buffalo Bills 21-14. The defeat cost Miami the AFC East division title and an opportunity to host a wild card postseason game.

In their Week 9 meeting this season in Germany, Kansas City’s offense scored two touchdowns in the first half, and the defense added a touchdown to create a 21-0 halftime lead. The second half saw Miami’s offense wake up to notch 14 points and force a game-closing defensive performance to put the Dolphins away on the final drive. Steve Spagnuolo’s unit held Tua Tagovailoa under 200 passing yards, and former Chiefs star Tyreek Hill was held to under eight yards per catch and no touchdowns after being matched up with L’Jarius Sneed.

The atmosphere at Arrowhead Stadium will have extra fuel for the playoff matchup under the lights as Hill makes his much-anticipated return. The Chiefs Kingdom hasn’t forgotten the many comments the Pro Bowl receiver has had about a potential game against the Chiefs in Kansas City.
