AFC Championship: Kansas City 36 – Baltimore 26

Well . . . this one didn’t start off so great for the Chiefs.  Mecole Hardman fielded the opening kick-off 8 yards deep in his own end zone, and, for some inexplicable reason, decided to run it out . . . and only made it to the 5 yard line!  Then, on their first play from scrimmage, Patrick Mahomes was sacked by Jaylon Ferguson for a safety.  Following the safety kick off Baltimore then took the ball 84 yards with Lamar Jackson taking it in for a TD from 5 yards out for a 9-0 lead.  Then, Jackson and Seth Roberts hooked up for a 71 yard TD pass to put the Ravens up 16-0.  And, it looked like the rout was on!

The Chiefs, however, did start to chip away – with a Harrison Butker field goal and a Damian Williams TD run, to cut the Ravens’ lead to 16-10.  But Mark Ingram’s short TD run followed by a long field goal from Justin Tucker just before the half, put Baltimore back on top by 16 entering intermission.

But, the second half flat belonged to the Chiefs, as they scored 26 unanswered points to come back and defeat the Ravens 36-26.  Now they are headed to the Super Bowl!
