Arrowhead Stadium hasn't been much of a home-field advantage for the Chiefs lately.

Kansas City must win its home finale Sunday against Indianapolis to avoid having a single home win over the course of a season for the third time in five years. Prior to that, the Chiefs had won more than once at Arrowhead Stadium every season since 1977.

Kansas City is a combined 12-27 over the past five seasons, a winning percentage of .308 _ well below the Chiefs' success rate of better than 57 percent at their 40-year-old home.

Empty seats have been multiplying with every loss the past two seasons, too. While the Chiefs' average home attendance remains 69,304 _ good for 13th in the NFL _ it also represents just 90.3 percent of capacity, better only than six teams in the league.
