After a spectacular weekend of football, NFL postseason Conference Championship matchups are set.
The San Francisco 49ers will visit the Detroit Lions in the NFC after surviving a Packers shock.
On Monday Football Monday, my beloved friend J.P. called last week's triumph over the Los Angeles Rams a “proof of concept game.” On Sunday, the Detroit Lions scored a crucial touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
At 17-17 with 13 minutes left, Lions quarterback Jared Goff handed off to rookie running back Jahmyr Gibbs on a 2nd and 2 at the Tampa Bay 31-yard line.
Somehow, the worst Kansas City Chiefs squad of Mahomes' career is going to the AFC title game, which he has never missed.
The NFL's finest quarterback will join the Chiefs in Baltimore. Mahomes has again excelled in the playoffs, compiling a 33.6 EPA in two games.
He excels in the playoffs, which is Kansas City's strength. They can face any game with the NFL's greatest QB.
