KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The AFC title game is returning to a familiar place in Kansas City. The question all week will be whether Patrick Mahomes will be able to play quarterback for the Chiefs.
The Kansas City Chiefs forced the Cleveland Browns to punt in the waning minutes Sunday with star quarterback Patrick Mahomes out with a concussion.
Then 35-year-old backup Chad Henne showed some moxie with a long third-down scramble and a fourth-down completion to Tyreek Hill with just over a minute left to give the Chiefs a first down and allowing them to run out the clock on a 22-17 victory in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Kansas City will host its third straight AFC title game and can get back to the Super Bowl with a win against the Buffalo Bills next Sunday.
Green Bay will host either Tampa Bay or New Orleans in the NFC title game.
