The Chiefs are locked into the No. 5 seed in the AFC and, as he'd hinted about previously, Andy Reid is resting his starters.

Among the inactives for Kansas City are Alex Smith, Jamaal Charles, Derrick Johnson, Branden Albert, Dwayne Bowe, Tamba Hali and Dontari Poe.

What makes this so important is the Chiefs are playing the Chargers. If the Bengals and Jets hold on against the Ravens and Dolphins, respectively, all the Chargers have to do is win and they're in the postseason.
