The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Tennessee Titans 35-24 in the AFC Championship game to ensure a first appearance in the Super Bowl in 50 years.
Field Marshal Patrick Mahomes threw three touchdowns and ran another when the Chiefs overcame an initial 10-point deficit with 28 points unanswered.
Tennessee had previously bothered New England and Baltimore in the play-offs.
The Chiefs will now face Green Bay or San Francisco in Super Bowl 54 in Miami.
Kansas City were slow again, just like last week when they fell 24-0 before beating Houston 51-31, and they stayed 10 points behind in a game plan almost perfectly executed by the Titans, combined with one more game Careless and penalties. of the hosts
Tyreek Hill scored in an eight-yard sweep on each side of a Derrick Henry race and a touchdown capture by Titans lineman Dennis Kelly, who became the heaviest player to catch a touchdown pass in history.
Mahomes then took over with two quick scores that have become his trademark: he first shot a 20-yard hit at Hill before taking off for an impressive 27-yard run that saw him evade a pair of tackles before beating Unite more and drive to the final area.
The Titans had dominated possession of the first half and Kansas City had made the most of their time with the ball, but in the second half Kansas City produced longer attacks by chewing for more than seven minutes by scoring their fourth touchdown of the game.
Damien Williams ran on the scoreboard from three yards to complete a 13-play course covering 73 yards.
Far from sitting at the head, Kansas City kept pressing and Mahomes threw a 60-yard pitch to Sammy Watkins to seal the game, despite a late consolation touchdown by Anthony Firkser.
After the Chiefs fell into the same obstacle at home last season against the Patriots, this time they watched the contest to claim the AFC Championship title and reserve their place in Miami for Super Bowl 54 on February 2.
Kansas City appeared in the first Super Bowl and participated for the last time in the great game in Super Bowl IV in 1970, with its return to the end of the NFL representing the biggest gap in Super Bowl appearances in history.
“It’s amazing and do it also in Arrowhead,” said Mahomes.
“We’re not done yet, let’s do it. This is amazing, we go out every day and see the job coach [Andy] Reid does it.
“Let’s go to the Super Bowl and let’s play our best football.”
