The longest NFL season ever is coming to an end!
The Kansas City Chiefs kick off the final game day with a great win at the Denver Broncos – 28:24.
The Chiefs keep the chances of first place, the associated home rights and a game-free weekend in the wild card round. With a win against the Houston Texans on Sunday, however, the Tennesse Titans can overtake them again. Mega excitement in the AFC!
For Broncos it was already clear beforehand that the season was over today.
The first playoff round will take place next Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Touchdown! Travis Kelce fakes a block, runs into the end zone! And there he gets the passport from Patrick Mahomes. The Chiefs get the first points of the game.
What bankruptcies, bad luck and mishaps: Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker slips away on the kick, his shot goes completely in the pants. Even before the game he had slipped while warming up on the soapy floor, and had already changed his shoes. Didn’t bring anything …
Then the lock show starts! Broncos playmaker Drew Lock runs into the end zone. With a kick it’s 7: 7 just before the end of the first quarter.
And then Lock adds another one! Again he marches through the Chiefs Defense – and creates the next touchdown!
The Chiefs shorten to 10:14 with a field goal. However, it is questionable why the guests use Tyreek Hill, who injured his heel while warming up and is now obviously limping. Shouldn’t it be better to spare him for the playoffs?
Harry, bring up the points: Jerick McKinnon slams into the end zone for a touchdown. Now the chiefs are back in front!
Strong slalom performance by the Chiefs Defense: Melvin Gordon, third, puts down an insane 47-yard touchdown run. It goes back and forth here.
Crazy: The Broncos lose the egg in attack after a mega-hard hit. Melvin Ingram crushes Melvin Gordon. Rookie Nick Bolton grabs the leather and runs and runs and runs 86 yards – to the touchdown!
WHAT AN INCREDIBLE ACTION!
Mahomes himself completes the two-point conversion. 28:21.
The Broncos don’t give up: Brandon McManus kicks Denver at 24:28. But not enough!
