Dolphins vs Chiefs preview

From a position of strength, the Dolphins' late-season slide has dropped them right in it. Not only must they overcome playoff specialists Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs, but they must do so in the worst possible circumstances – tonight's game stands to be one of the chilliest in NFL history, with temperatures hovering around -20 degrees Celsius, or -9 Fahrenheit.

Dolphins inactives: WR Robbie Chose, QB Skylar Thompson, S Jevon Holland, CB Cam Smith, CB Xavien Howard, OT Kion Smith, TE Tyler Kroft

Chiefs inactives: WR Justyn Ross, WR Kadarius Toney, CB Keith Taylor, DE BJ Thompson, OL Wanya Morris, DT Neil Farrell, DE Felix Anudike-Uzomah

The Dolphins have thrilled at times this season, but they have two resounding weaknesses, which could both be brutally exploited at Arrowhead Stadium today. Going 1-5 against teams that made the playoffs is a pretty bad omen in itself, but they've also lost 10 straight games when the temperature has been below 40 Fahrenheit at kick-off. 

The Chiefs, however, haven't fared much better against good teams this season. Kansas City have gone 1-4 against fellow playoff qualifiers, that solitary victory coming against the Dolphins in Munich, and it's fair to say that the reigning champions' Super Bowl hopes are being fuelled almost exclusively by Mahomes' fearsome postseason reputation. 

Their Chris Jones-led defense suffocated both Tua Tagovailoa and former fan-favourite Chief Tyreek Hill when they met two months ago, though those painful memories will surely only provide further motivation for the wide receiver on the occasion of his first return to KC.
