KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ In the span of a year, the Kansas City Chiefs went from a franchise in disarray to having the best record in the AFC and a shot at winning their division with two regular-season games left.

The Chiefs punched their ticket to the playoffs with a 56-31 victory at Oakland on Sunday. Kansas City (11-3) also moved into a tie with Denver atop the AFC West, though the Broncos hold the tiebreaker by virtue of a season sweep.

Still, if the Broncos stumble in one of their two remaining games _ at lowly Houston and Oakland _ and the Chiefs beat Indianapolis and San Diego, it would be Kansas City that's home for the playoffs.

The way this season has gone, even the most remote possibility is still possible.
