The Miami Dolphins begin their 2024 NFL playoffs run with a game at the Kansas City Chiefs. This was not the matchup, or location, the Dolphins were hoping to have this weekend, having held on to one of the top two seeds and the AFC East division lead for most of the year, only to have it all slip away with last week’s loss to the Buffalo Bills. Instead of staying home this weekend, Miami, as the sixth seed in the AFC playoff picture, has to travel to Kansas City, where the wind chill is expected to be near 35-degrees below zero.

Miami lost to the Chiefs 21-14 back in Week 9, a game played in Frankfurt, Germany. This weekend’s game will be in Kansas City and brings with it a return of former Chiefs wide receiver Tyreek Hill to Arrowhead Stadium. The 2023 regular season’s receiving yardage leader, Hill has continued his streak of eight-straight Pro Bowl selections, six with Kansa City and two with the Dolphins, making him the first receiver to be selected to the all-star event in each of his first eight seasons in the league. How will Hill respond to being back in Kansas City? How will the Chiefs fans respond to him wearing a Dolphins jersey?

The Dolphins come into this game decimated by injury, particularly to the pass rushers. The team added three edge rushers to the roster after seeing linebacker Jerome Baker, Cameron Goode, and Andrew Van Ginkel land on injured reserve. Justin Houston and Bruce Irvin were added to the 53-man roster, with Melvin Ingram promoted from the practice squad to the active roster. To replace Ingram on the practice squad, Miami signed Malik Reed, bringing back the veteran who was with the team in training camp this year before joining the Las Vegas Raiders for the season. He could be elevated for the game, working as a rotational edge rusher and as a special teams contributor.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the line for this game has climbed to favoring the Chiefs by five points as of Saturday afternoon. The point total is set at 43.5 combined points while the Dolphins are +195 for the straight-up win and the Chiefs are -238 on the moneyline.
