Mahomes is attacked, backs out of the pocket and out to the right, breaking free. Finally, he throws the leather right into the end zone at Kelce, who secures the second touchdown. The extra point sits again – the Chiefs increase to 14:3!
On 3rd & 3, Mahomes once again gets too much space and throws out to the right at an open Jerick McKinnon, who easily takes another first down.
What a passport!
Mahomes immediately logs back in and sends Mecole Hardman down the line to the left. He’ll run and run and catch the egg before he’s knocked to the ground! Big gain for the Chiefs!
Injury to the Bengals
CJ Uzomah is wheeled into the catacombs with an injury. For now, things are looking bad for the tight end.
McPherson with the field goal
On the third try, Burrow seeks receiver Chase, but he is heavily defended and the ball flies wide to the right. So McPherson comes onto the field and kicks the leather between the bars. 7:3!
Higgins drops the ball!
This time, Burrow finds his wide receiver in the back left of the endzone, but Higgins drops the leather!
Almost the interception!
Burrow flicks the egg halfway across the field, where Uzomah bounces the ball high in the air trying to catch it. Two Chiefs jump for the free ball but drop the thing on the floor!
First run by Burrow
The Bengals quarterback can walk as well and carries the egg himself out to the left when there is some space. This is the new 1st Down.
Leadership of the favorite!
extra point after
Harrison Butker goes for the extra point and converts safely. 7-0 for the Chiefs!
Of course Tyreek Hill does it! Mahomes gets a lot of space in the backfield and seems to run again before he throws directly to the free Tyreek Hill just before the line of scrimmage. Right in the end zone, the star wide receiver gets too much room and catches that thing!
Mahomes is free!
Under pressure, Mahomes suddenly breaks free and runs diagonally to the right until he’s gone ten yards and is out.
New first down
After checking the pictures, the referees quickly agree with the chiefs and Kansas City gets a new first try.
At 3rd & 1, Michael Burton runs and appears to narrowly get a new first try, but the umpires put the ball in front of the line. Before it comes to the fourth try, the Chiefs time out and finally throw the red flag to have the decision reviewed.
Left is free
The Chiefs’ first run is already good and brings seven yards. After that, Mahomes finds a free receiver on the left, who runs out the first new first down of this matchup.
The Bengals are only allowed to play three plays before the ball is gone again. Mixon gets three yards on the first run. Ja’Marr Chase does the same thing when he is first thrown on. However, the next throw is blocked by Burrow and remains unfinished. So Mahomes is allowed on the field!
In the end zone
This game begins without a kickoff return. The Chiefs kick the leather back into the end zone so Cincinnati will start at the 25 yard line.
Chiefs kick first!
Kickoff goes to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bengals will carry the ball back!
It’s about to start!
The players rush onto the field. The teams are ready. Only the anthem and the coin toss are left. It will not be long!
Second duel in January
It’s only been 28 days since the Chiefs last met the Bengals. At Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati also won the game in the last second to secure the playoff spot, although they were 17:28 behind at the break. So viewers can expect a surprising comeback today.
Young versus old on the bench
Suspense until the last second
Last weekend got on the nerves of NFL fans. On Saturday, the Bengals won 16-19, despite only conceding the equalizer with 15 seconds to go. With a lightning-fast drive, Evan McPherson was able to score the decisive field goal with four seconds on the clock. It was even more dramatic in Kansas City, where three touchdowns were scored in the last two minutes. Gabriel Davis provided the supposed win for Buffalo, but Harrison Butker equalized three seconds before the end. The Chiefs took the momentum and won in overtime with a touchdown by Travis Kelce.
Tyrant Mathieu is ready!
For the first time in 33 years, the Cincinnati Bengals can win an AFC Championship and advance to the Super Bowl. The franchise around quarterback talent Joe Burrow has been considered an underdog since the start of the playoffs and would like to finally shed this title by defeating the Chiefs. So who will make Super Bowl LVI?
All good things come in threes
Patrick Mahomes and his Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl two years ago. Today they are playing for the Conference Championship once again and want to go to the Super Bowl for the third year in a row. After a disappointing finale last season, the Chiefs are looking for revenge. Only the Bengals stand in their way.
Who is going to the Super Bowl?
The Kansas City Chiefs host the Cincinnati Bengals at Arrowhead Stadium! The AFC Championship is at stake and the winner, of course, goes to the Super Bowl! Warm welcome!
