With yet another crazy performance by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs return to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1969. The Chiefs, who entered the playoffs as the second seed in the AFC, came back from a backlog on the second quarter board. With 28 points in a row, they outdid the Tennessee Titans (# 6 seed): 24-35. On February 2, the Chiefs will take on the San Francisco 49ers in Miami.
AGAIN A CHIEFS COMEBACK
Just like last weekend, the Chiefs did not start well. Last week they quickly faced a 24-0 deficit. This time, it was a 10-0 deficit, but they went into halftime with a 21-17 lead. Trailing 17-7, Mahomes and his team went off with a whopping 342 attacking yards against just 39 of the Titans. Then the so-called garbage time started. With 7:30 minutes left, the game was over. Mahomes did everything: long passes, short passes, rushes. He was untenable. Tennessee kept the field short and did not seek refuge in deep balls. It didn’t matter to the Kansas City quarterback. The Titans defense didn’t control him, so he ended the game with 23 of 35 passes, 294 passing yards and three touchdowns. We also forget his already legendary touchdown run.
