AFC Championship: Bills 24, Chiefs 28
NFC Championship: Buccaneers 31, Packers 26
The Kansas City Chiefs are heading back to the Super Bowl.
The Buffalo Bills came out swinging at Arrowhead Stadium. A nine-point shutout first quarter wouldn’t be the enough to take down Patrick Mahomes (who was cleared from concussion protocol just two days before Sunday’s game) and the reigning Super Bowl champs.
Kansas City would go on a 21-3 run in the second quarter to hold a nine-point lead at the half.
Josh Allen and the Bills were held to 12 points in the second half which isn’t enough to outscore the fast-break-like Chiefs.
Now Kansas City has a chance to win a second-consecutive Super Bowl against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who make their first Super Bowl appearance since their 2002 championship season.
At 43 years-old Brady, in his first season in Tampa Bay, will make his 10th Super Bowl appearance in the hunt for his seventh Super Bowl ring.
The Bills end a historic season one-game short but this year will be one that the franchise will never forget – on top of doing it in a global pandemic.
