You didn't have to look very far to find the biggest Dolphins on Sunday afternoon. 

They weren't in south Florida; they were in Kansas City.

Thanks to the Dolphins' 27-24 upset of the Patriots — Miami's first win in Foxboro since 2008 — New England and Kansas City finished the season with identical 12-4 records, but the Chiefs earned the No. 2 seed in the AFC while the Patriots fell to the No. 3 seed thanks to the Chiefs' Week 14 win in New England.

Andy Reid summed up the Chiefs' thoughts with this quip from the podium:

Patrick Mahomes had a short but sweet on-field reation to the Dolphins win, crediting Ryan Fitzpatrick for rallying Miami to victory: "It's Fitzmagic, man."

The Chiefs organization, players, and their fans had plenty more congratulations for their new favorite team on social media.
