Chiefs destroy Dolphins in 4th coldest game

The Kansas City Chiefs put on a masterclass of cold-weather football as they dismantled the Miami Dolphins 26-7 at Arrowhead.

Once billed as better than the greatest show on turf, the Dolphins offence has spluttered at the end of the season and the Chiefs shut them down once again allowing only one busted coverage touchdown and 265-yards of total offence.

The Dolphins managed just two drives of over 30 yards in the entire game. Meanwhile the Chiefs racked up 262-yards passing, and 147-yards rushing.

Chiefs know how to win in the playoffs

For all their struggles in games during the regular season the Chiefs had no problems with the Dolphins for the second time this season.

“Guys came with that attitude, that mentality — we knew it was going to be cold,” Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes said. “All week we were preaching, ‘Let’s come in there with that fire and just get after it and see what happens.’”

“Everybody was out there playing for each other,” Chiefs rookie WR Rashee Rice said. “We just put the weather to the side and knew that our opponent didn’t want to be out there just as much as we didn’t, and we showed our love for the game.”

“We knew they were going to put a lot of attention toward our receivers,” Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said. “We thought we had the right plan and obviously it wasn’t, and hats off to them for executing their plan in the most important time.”
