AFC

yz* – 1. Kansas City Chiefs (14-3), AFC West champions: They were among several teams impacted by the NFL’s decision Thursday night to cancel Week 17’s Bills-Bengals game in the aftermath of Buffalo S Damar Hamlin’s on-field collapse and subsequent hospitalization. Kansas City did secure the No. 1 seed by crushing the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday, however,  the Chiefs aren’t guaranteed to remain at Arrowhead Stadium throughout January. The Bills’ win Sunday means they would meet the Chiefs at a neutral site for the AFC championship game if both teams advance that far. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and his competition committee laid out some recommendations – approved by league clubs Friday – that prevented Hamlin’s situation from forcing the Bills to travel to Arrowhead given Buffalo would have won the No. 1 seed by beating Cincinnati in Week 17 had the game been completed. Next week: Bye
