January 18, 2021

The AFC Championship game will feature the Buffalo Bills heading to Arrowhead Stadium to face the Kansas City Chiefs ’reigning champs.


Superstar quarterback and ‘half-a-billion-man’ Patrick Mahomes exited the game in the third quarter due to the NFL concussion protocols. The Chiefs were leading 19-10, and veteran backup Chad Henne tasked with steering the team towards a win.


Chad Henne marched the Chiefs down the field to set up a 33-yard field goal by Harrison Butker and a 22-10 lead.


Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns were not backing down. They responded with an 18-play sequence, going 75-yards and finishing with a touchdown to pull it back to 22-17.


The game came down to a pair of 4th downplays. Browns coach, Kevin Stefanski punted away with 4:19 left, facingfourth-and-9 at their 29-yard line and hoping to get a stop at the other end.


Chiefs head coach Andy Reid had no hesitation in going for it on fourth-and-inches. Henne found Tyreek Hill for the first down, putting the game away and setting up a third-straight AFC Championship game at Arrowhead.
