The Kansas City Chiefs defeat the Cincinnati Bengals and end up in the Super Bowl. There they meet the Philadelphia Eagles, who previously held their own against the San Francisco 49ers, on February 12 in Glendale, Arizona.
Led by their injured playmaker Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs have the for the third time in four years super bowl of the National Football League and meet the Philadelphia Eagles there. At 23:20 against the Cincinnati Bengals, a field goal eight seconds before the end on Sunday evening local time brought the decision.
The situation was made possible by Mahomes, who had an ankle injury and who, for the only time in the game, carried the ball forward himself as quickly as he could. With two touchdown passes and throws for a total of 326 yards, Mahomes made an outstanding game under the circumstances. “There are moments in a game when you just have to risk everything,” Mahomes said at the handover of the trophy for the AFC win on the scene before the field goal.
On February 12, the Chiefs will meet the Eagles in Glendale, Arizona, after beating the San Francisco 49ers 31-7 in the NFC finals. “It’s going to be a great challenge, but first I’m going to celebrate this. I don’t think we have cigars, but we’ll be prepared for the Super Bowl,” Mahomes said.
The Chiefs won the Super Bowl for the second time in their history in February 2020, losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021. Last season, the Chiefs lost to quarterback Joe Burrow’s Bengals in the AFC Finals.
