Best, Worst Case Scenarios for a Kansas City Chiefs Playoff Run
Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Justin Houston and Tamba Hali are the most menacing pass-rushing tandem to don Chiefs uniforms since the late great Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith splintered. 

Whether they're singing each other's praises or paying homage to Kid n' Play's House Party after sandwiching throwers of the pigskin, the two's tight-knit relationship is clearly evident. 

Why is any of that relevant to a slideshow about the Kansas City Chiefs' playoff hopes? More times than not, when you pay homage to something, it's old. Collecting-dust-like-Furbies-in-hoarders'-attics old.

Kansas City's last postseason win came nine days after House Party 3 was released. "Kid" turns 50 in April.

And due to the impotence of their next-door neighbors, the Chiefs aren't even viewed as the city's annual postseason write-offs. For the sake of not putting half the population on suicide watch, we'll let that sleeping dog lie, though.

When the curtains close on the 2013 season, the Chiefs will likely boast one of the league's best records but be jilted by the NFL's playoff parameters. Although Kansas City may tout more wins than its first-round opponent, Andy Reid probably won't enjoy the privilege of strutting down an Arrowhead sideline this postseason. 

The good news? With the way that the playoff picture is shaping up, the City of Fountains' winless postseason drought could finally come to an end.
