Kansas City Chiefs 17-10 Baltimore Ravens: Patrick Mahomes guides champions to fourth Super Bowl in last five years | NFL News


He did it again. They did it again. They were doubted; they cared not for doubts. Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are heading to the Super Bowl for the fourth time in the last five years after shattering the dreams of Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens with a 17-10 victory in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday.

Jackson threw an end zone interception while chasing the game in the fourth quarter and Zay Flowers lost a fumble at the Chiefs goalline as a battle of the league’s elite quarterbacks evolved into a battle between the Ravens’ play-caller and Steve Spagnuolo’s phenomenal Kansas City defense.

Travis Kelce and Isiah Pacheco each scored first-half touchdowns as the defending Super Bowl champions built a defining 17-7 advantage at the break on their way to booking a spot in Las Vegas, where they will face the winner of the San Francisco 49ers and Detroit Lions in the NFC title matchup.

Mahomes finished 30 of 39 passing for 241 yards and a score as he and the Chiefs now look to become the first team since the New England Patriots in 2003 and 2004 to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles.
