Patrick Mahomes Leads Chiefs To AFC Title, Advance To Super Bowl

Jan 29, 2023 10:25 PM

Almost a year to the day after the Cincinnati Bengals sent the Kansas City Chiefs home in overtime of last season's AFC Championship Game, the Chiefs got their revenge. Playing through a high ankle sprain, quarterback Patrick Mahomes snapped Joe Burrow and the Bengals' streak of three straight wins over Kansas City.

Harrison Butker sent the Chiefs to the Super Bowl with a 45-yard field goal to win 23-20. It is the Chiefs' third Super Bowl berth in four seasons. They'll face Jalen Hurts and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Eagles Beat 49ers 31-7, Advance To Super Bowl LVII

Jan 29, 2023 7:19 PM

Behind a stifling defensive performance on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles punched their ticket to Super Bowl LVII after defeating the San Francisco 49ers 31-7 in the NFC Championship Game.

Quarterback and penalty woes marred San Francisco throughout the game. The Niners were forced to largely rely on the ground game, with running back Christian McCaffrey accounting for their sole touchdown. All four of the Eagles' touchdowns were rushing TDs -- including two by RB Miles Sanders.

Brandon Staley: Playoff Berth 'Just The Beginning' For Chargers

Dec 27, 2022 9:16 AM

The Los Angeles Chargers are headed to the playoffs for the first time since 2018.

They clinched a postseason berth with Monday night's 20-3 win over the Indianapolis Colts.

"I've been here long enough to know that when it comes, it's a great feeling," Keenan Allen said. "We talk about it all the time: Control what you can control. And this week, we were able to handle our own destiny and we made it happen."

It will be the first postseason appearance for Brandon Staley and Justin Herbert.

"It's just the beginning. This is not our final goal," Staley said. "We have two more games against really good teams and we need to search to play our best football so we can not only get into the playoffs but make a run to a Super Bowl championship, which is what our goal is."

49ers Clinch NFC West With 21-13 Win In Seattle

Dec 16, 2022 12:51 AM

For the first time since 2019, the San Francisco 49ers are NFC West division champions.

And though Lumen Field has been something of a house of horrors for them for the past decade-plus, it also has been the site of their two most recent hat-and-T-shirt celebrations.

This time, the Niners wrapped up the NFC West on Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks with a resounding 21-13 victory. When they claimed the division crown in 2019, that clinch also happened in Seattle.

Baker Mayfield Leads Rams To Comeback Win Over Raiders

Dec 9, 2022 2:02 AM

Not long after Baker Mayfield led the Los Angeles Rams to a 17-16 comeback victory over the Las Vegas Raiders on Thursday night, Sean McVay stood at the podium and laughed.

"Just like we drew it up," McVay said.

The Rams won the game to snap their six-game losing streak in spectacular fashion, led by Mayfield, who was playing two days after he was claimed off waivers. Mayfield came off the bench after Los Angeles' first series, replacing starting quarterback John Wolford.
