The Miami Dolphins beat the New England Patriots on Sunday to help make the Kansas City Chiefs first round playoff bye possible.

Now Chiefs fans want Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to be the guest drummer at Arrowhead Stadium for Kansas City's first playoff game. 

 and to celebrate, Chiefs fans are signing a petition to bring Dolphins quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to Arrowhead to serve as  guest drummer.

“Let’s show our gratitude with the greatest honor to be given at Arrowhead Stadium,” petition starter Chase Myska said in the petition caption. “Let the man bang the drum!”

As of about 3 p.m. Monday, more than 18,500 people had signed the online petition.

WDAF reports Fitzpatrick helped lead the Dolphins to an unlikely win over the Patriots. Right after the Dolphins' win, Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas said he plans to send barbecue to Miami’s mayor.

The Chiefs beat the Chargers 31-21 and are the No. 2 seed.
