With the Kansas City Chiefs securing a playoff spot in their blowout win against the Oakland Raiders there are now two scenarios that would cause Kansas City to leap-frog Oklahoma in the Hammer Tournament Standings. Both scenarios involve Kansas City winning the next two games however. Scenario 1) Oklahoma defeats Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and Kansas City defeats Indianapolis, San Diego, and wins the 1st round of the playoffs. Scenario 2) Oklahoma loses to Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and Kansas City defeats both Indianapolis and San Diego. Both these scenarios would push KC past OU, however there is still no guarantee that the #1 seed and the #2 seed would each make it to the championship round of the Hammer Tournament (although that has never happened before).
