The Miami Dolphins are officially eliminated from the playoff race after suffering a 29-13 loss against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.
The loss marks the eighth time the Dolphins have finished the season with a losing record since 2006.
Jay Cutler had a subpar performance, completing 19 of 38 passes for 286 yards and a touchdown. Cutler also fumbled again — for the fifth time in two games.
Miami was 0 of 8 on third downs while Kansas City was 8 of 16. The Dolphins trailed in time of possession and had 11 penalties for 75 yards.
Miami’s lone touchdown came when wide receiver Jakeem Grant caught a short pass, broke two tackles and ran 65 yards to the end zone.

Kansas City (9-6), which started the season 5-0 and then lost six of its next seven, clinched their second consecutive AFC West championship in front of a half-empty Arrowhead Stadium.
Quarterback Alex Smith completed 25 of 39 for 304 yards and one touchdown.
Kansas City’s win over the Dolphins locked in a fifth straight winning season and left the Chargers with slim wild card hopes.
