(KANSAS CITY, Mo.)— The AFC's path to Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta will go through Kansas City.

The Kansas City Chiefs (12-4) defeated the Oakland Raiders (4-12), 35-3, to claim the No. 1 in the AFC. 

With the win Sunday, the Chiefs have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, a first-round bye, and are now back-to-back-to-back AFC West Champions.

In the victory, quarterback Patrick Mahomes became just the second quarterback in NFL history to throw 50 touchdown passes and more than 5,000 yards. 

The Chiefs will host the lowest remaining seed at 3:35 p.m. Jan. 12 at Arrowhead Stadium.

Cold Temperatures continue through the day Sunday. We will see mostly sunny skies with highs in the upper 10s to lower 20s. While the sun will be out for the game tomorrow, we have some northerly winds gusting between 20 to 25mph making it feel much colder. Wind chills will only be brushing 0 by kickoff. If you are headed to arrowhead tomorrow, make sure you bundle up. Temperatures will hold in the 20s and 30s through the first half of the week and we will see some chances for rain and warmer weather after midweek.
