Mahomes and Kelce make NFL playoff history as Chiefs win in Buffalo

After the Kansas City Chiefs won 27:24 in their playoff game against the Buffalo Bills, the NFL semifinals were set.

At the end of the divisional round, the NFL's quarterfinals, there was a titanic duel between star quarterbacks Patrick Mahomes and Josh Allen in freezing temperatures in Buffalo. For Chiefs boss Mahomes, this was the first away game in the NFL knockout stage, as Bills playmaker Allen wanted to celebrate his first win over his opponent in the knockout stage after two previous defeats. However, in the end, Mahomes' crazy streak continued, and he reached the NFL semifinals with the Chiefs for the sixth straight time.

The match was exactly what fans expected. The match witnessed tension from the beginning, although the first third ended with a score of 3-3. The only thing missing was a touchdown, but that changed after the first intermission when Josh Allen took over and ran the ball into the Chiefs' end zone after a stunning punt. Mahomes & Co. were not affected by the deficit. First they were able to close the gap with a field goal, and soon after that, the Super Bowl winner took the lead for the first time in the game with Travis Kelce's first touchdown.

Since then, both offensive lines have operated freely. But before the break it was Allen again who gave Buffalo a 17:13 lead into the break with a 2-yard run into the end zone.

Mahomes and Kelce are making history

The third quarter started on a historic note. Patrick Mahomes found Travis Kelce again, who used the pass safely and scored his second touchdown of the evening. Overall, this was the 16th time the duo has scored points in the playoffs and surpasses the legendary duo of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.

But once again the Bills found the right answer. Allen finds Khalil Shakhir in the end zone with a stunning pass and fans begin to believe in the Bills' rise. The Giants duel enters the fourth and final quarter with the Bills leading 24:20.

Bills drama in the final

When Chiefs running back Isaiah Pacheco hits 27:24 for the visitors, there are still 5 minutes of game time left on the clock. It's the Bills' turn again. Despite some close calls, Allen leads his team to within points. But when it's needed most, Kansas' defense pushes back against the Bills' offensive superiority and forces a field goal attempt. Tyler Bass, safety kicker, participates in the mandatory drill to score the tying goal.

But fate takes its course. The ball flies wide with two minutes left in the game and Kansas City takes over again. The first down is enough to decide the game, and Pacheco, who had previously scored, seals the win in 27:24 and a sixth straight semifinal appearance for Kansas City. There will be a summit meeting there on Sunday with Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.

Lions don't give Tampa Bay any chance

The Detroit Lions previously won their home game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers by a score of 31:23, and are now just one win away from reaching the Super Bowl for the first time. Detroit will face the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Final on Sunday in Santa Clara. This means the conference's top two regular-season teams are competing for a spot in the Super Bowl.

In a first quarter that didn't feature any major events, there were field goals for both teams and there wasn't much to see on offense. Lions defenders rushed Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield repeatedly and dragged him to the ground, but the Lions on the other hand couldn't get into their rhythm. After the score was 10:10 at half-time, that changed after the break. The hosts were controlling the match better and better. Landings from Jahmyr Gibbs and St. Brown's fourth-quarter drive increased the lead to more than seven points for the first time and created a lively atmosphere at Ford Field in Detroit.

An unusually high number of passes from quarterback Jared Goff toward St. Brown's initially did not reach their destination. With eight passes caught, 77 yards and a touchdown, the 24-year-old son of a Leverkusen mother and former American bodybuilder was once again a crucial factor for his team. A bad pass from Mayfield with 93 seconds left sealed the win for the Lions.
