Game-winning field goal! Bengals 27-24 Chiefs, FINAL

Bengals 27-24 Chiefs, FINAL

It’s all about ball security for the Bengals here. Mixon picks up an extra two yards here to bring the Bengals to the 10-yard line. On 2nd & 8, Burrow takes a three yard loss, but that still sets up a 33-yard field goal and if you think that McPherson is going to miss it, you’re out of your mind!

It’s right down the middle! The Bengals are going to the Super Bowl?


Bengals 24-24 Chiefs, 10:52, OT

Oh, wow, this is happening. Mixon picks up seven yards to take them to the Chiefs 25. It’s a 2nd & 3 situation, Mixon gets the ball all the way to the Chiefs’ 13 yard line. Kansas City takes a timeout here, but what could Andy Reid possibly say here?

Bengals 24-24 Chiefs, 12:51, OT

On the Bengals 45, Burrow throws to Higgins for a nine-yard gain. 2nd & 1, Mixon picks up four yards. 1st & 10 at the Kansas City 40, Mixon picks up yet another two yards. 2nd & 8 at the Kansas City 40, Burrow finds Higgins for an eight-yard gain to the Kansas City 32. It feels like they’re close to field goal range already.

Bengals 24-24 Chiefs, 14:46, OT

The Chiefs start at their own 25 after another touchback. On 1st & 10, Mahomes throws incomplete. On 2nd & 10, Mahomes nearly throws a game-ending interception to Eli Apple. Oh dear, that could be painful if the Bengals can’t get a stop on 3rd & 10.

Except this time, Mahomes does throw an interception! This one is caught by Bell at the Kansas City 45. Updated at 18.10 EST

If the Chiefs win this game without the Bengals getting a chance to touch the ball in overtime, there is no chance that the NFL will not change the OT rules in this offseason. There will be riots if they don’t.

Coin toss

Well, that might be it for the Bengals. The Chiefs win the coin toss and can win it if they score a touchdown on their opening drive

For the second straight playoff game.

But Brown is healthy and mauling again, and Thuney, who moved to left tackle against the Bengals, is back at his familiar position. Their protection enabled Kansas City to score 84 points and gain 1,030 yards across its first two playoff games.

Kansas City heads into its matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals favored by 7 points in most sports books. Bettors — both casual fans and more serious gamblers — have largely backed Kansas City to win by more than a touchdown.

Two drives, two touchdown passes for Mahomes, both coming after he rolled to the right. But this one, a 5-yarder to Travis Kelce, was just artful. He stepped forward in the pocket, felt pressure, spun right and then floated a pass to Kelce, who was silenced in the two team’s first matchup but, so far, not on Sunday.

Mahomes had 7.94 seconds to throw, according to NFL Next Gen Stats, the longest window for a touchdown pass of his career.

A lot was made in the week leading up to the A.F.C. championship game about how loud it would be at Arrowhead Stadium. The fans are indeed making their presence known.

Game tying field goal! Bengals 24-24 Chiefs

Bengals 24-24 Chiefs, end of regulation

3rd & goal. Mahomes at the nine. He has a ridiculous amount of time to make a decision but the Bengals defense finally gets to him. Hubbard sacks him for a 15-yard loss and a fumble, which Kansas City recovers. That could have ended the game right there if the Bengals had recovered.

It’s all on Butker to force overtime here… and he does when his 44-yard field goal is good! The Chiefs have forced overtime yet again!

Bengals 24-21 Chiefs, :39, 4th quarter

2nd & goal. Mahomes takes a five-yard sack here, that’s on Sam Hubbard, pushing them to the Cincinnati 9. The Bengals take a timeout.

Bengals 24-21 Chiefs, 1:26, 4th quarter

It’s 1st & goal at the Cincinnati 5. The clock is a huge factor here, the Chiefs don’t want to leave the Bengals any time here. So, Mahomes hands off to McKinnon for the gain of a single yard.

The Bengals take a timeout here.

Bengals 24-21 Chiefs, 1:30, 4th quarter

1st & 10 on the Cincinnati 15, Mahomes takes it himself and rushes for 4 yards. 2nd & 6. Mahomes runs and runs and runs and… gets an additional four yards when it’s all said and done. 3rd & 2 at the Bengals 7. Mahomes finds Kelce for… exactly two yards. And the Chiefs take a timeout.

Roger Kirkby:

Well, the Chiefs are knocking on the door now.

Bengals 24-21 Chiefs, 2:00, 4th quarter

After being silent the entire second half, the Chiefs offense has woken up at the worst possible time for Cincinnati. On 1st & 10 at the Bengals’ 38, Hardman gets nine yards. On the next play, McKinnon runs the ball to the Bengals’ 15 yard line and takes us to the two-minute warning.

Bengals 24-21 Chiefs, 3:29, 4th quarter

2nd & 2 at their own 43, McKinnon picks up 1 yard. Now we have the biggest third-down situation of the game. Mahomes throws to Kelce and the best tight end in the league gives them an 18-yard gain that takes them into the Bengals 38.

Bengals 24-21 Chiefs, 4:55, 4th quarter

Another kickoff, another touchback. The Chiefs are at their own 25 again. Mahomes throws a pass to Hardman, which gives them a five yard gain. 2nd & 10, Mahomes finds Kelce to make up the ten-yard difference. 1st & 10 at their own 35, Mahomes goes into shotgun mode and finds Kelce for an eight yard gain.

Burrow came into this game expressing his annoyance that people considered the Bengals’ underdogs. All the confidence in the world, this guy has, and can you blame him?

Bengals 24-21 Chiefs, 6:04, 4th quarter

Finally some good news for Kansas City on this drive: a false start penalty pushes the Bengals back five yards. It’s now 1st & 15 at the Chiefs’ 39. Burrow’s first pass attempt is incomplete. Second down. Burrow finds Chase for a five yard gain, which at least erases the penalty. It’s 3rd & 10 at the Chiefs 34. Burrow’s next throw is incomplete, but they’re in field goal range.

McPherson’s 52-yard field goal is… JUST good. The Bengals have the lead on another clutch McPherson kick! Fans at Arrowhead are stunned and they should be.

Bengals 21-21 Chiefs, 8:22, 4th quarter

1st & 10 at the Cincinnati 45… and here come the flags. It’s an offside penalty on the defense, which will give the Bengals an additional five yards here. So, it’s 1st 7 5 at the 50-yard line. Burrow throws to Higgins who puts on a yards-after-the-catch clinic and extended into a 16-yard play. The Bengals are now at the Kansas City 34.

Bengals 21-21 Chiefs, 8:42, 4th quarter

It’s 1st & 10, somehow, at the Bengals 31. Mixon picks up a yard. 2nd & 9, Burrow finds Boyd to cut it to a 3rd & 7 situation. At his own 34, Burrow scrambles yet again and gets a first down yet again! The eleven yard run takes him to the Cincinnati 45.

On the next play, the Bengals take a timeout.

Bengals 21-21 Chiefs, 11:01, 4th quarter

The Bengals have already secured a moral victory: can they pull off a real victory? They start at their own 20 where Mixon picks up 4 yards. 2nd & 6, Burrow throws one way too low. The Chiefs have a 3rd & 6 situation and a chance to shut this down, but instead their defense can’t get to Burrow who decides to keep the ball and take it himself for a seven yard gain that takes them to their own 31 and gives them a first down.

Bengals 21-21 Chiefs, 12:36, 4th quarter

Edwards-Helaire picks up 4 yards to get to the Bengals 49, setting up a 2nd & 6 situation. Mahomes throws his next pass just over Edwards-Helaire in a rare poor throw. This is a big third down situation here. Let’s face it: ever situation is key here.

Mahomes gets sacked again! It’s an eight-yard loss courtesy of Trey Hendrickson, the Bengals defense effectively erases the interception and forces Kansas City to punt once more. Townsend’s punt, yet again, falls into the end zone for a touchback.

Bengals 21-21 Chiefs, 14:01, 4th quarter

And the Bengals drive promptly ends! Burrow tries to throw to Chase, but instead L’Jarius Sneed picks it off at the Kansas City 47! They get the ball right back! Unbelievable!

Bengals 21-21 Chiefs, 14:14, 4th quarter

Mahomes has plenty of time with the ball and ends up scrambling… for a nine-yard loss! That’s his first sack of the game. The Bengals stop the Chiefs yet again: they haven’t scored this entire half. Here comes the punt team. Townsend’s punt is returned by Taylor to the Bengals 34, where they will start their drive.

I can’t beileve I’m saying this, but this game has gone from a potential blowout to a worthy follow-up to Bills-Chiefs.

Bengals 21-21 Chiefs, end of the 3rd quarter

McPherson’s kickoff goes for a touchback. The Chiefs will start from their own 25. Mahomes throws incomplete to McKinnon. 2nd & 10, Mahomes finds Kelce for a seven yard gain to their own 32. It will be 3rd & 3 when the fourth quarter begins.

What a game we have going here!
