Chiefs beat Texans 51-31 to advance to AFC Championship Game
That’s when the run happened. Kansas City scored 28 straight points to end the half. Suddenly they were up 28-24 after one half of football. It did not stop there though.
The Chiefs ended up scoring a few more times, making it a 41-0 run and taking a 41-24 lead.
Houston responded and made it 41-31, but Kansas City put the game away with a few more scores, and ended up winning 51-31.
That puts them in the AFC Championship game for the second straight season. This time around, they will face off with the surprising Tennessee Titans, who have already knocked off the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens this postseason.
Kansas City enjoyed a massive day from quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He threw for 321 yards and five touchdowns (no interceptions). Mahomes also had 53 rushing yards to lead the team.
Travis Kelce racked up 134 yards and three touchdowns on 10 receptions, and Damien Williams ran the ball into the end zone twice as well.
It was a well-oiled machine that took down the Texans, and now we are primed for a fantastic showdown in the AFC Championship game.
Tennessee’s defense has been able to completely shut down Tom Brady and the Patriots, and Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. Now they have Mahomes and the Chiefs next. Things are not exactly getting any easier for them, are they?
Last season, the Chiefs fell to the Patriots 37-31 in overtime in the AFC Championship game. This year, they have a chance to erase that pain by beating the Titans and advancing to their first Super Bowl since the 1969 season.
