I agree the Chiefs won the game. But I have deep suspicions as to whether the refs are actually ever impartial. Maybe on the field they are, but whenever they go up to the booth for review, I don’t think so.

I just realized, we have a chance for a 3/4 black QBs in the Conference Championship games (Pat, Jalen, Dak). Would that be a first.

NFL wants the Chiefs in the next round. That was never going to be anything but a fumble.
It looked close live because he lost the ball before contact, but on replay it was clearly a fumble.

KC against either Buffalo or Cincinnati is a much more compelling AFC final than the Jaguars matchup would have been. This was a fun game and Mahomes‘ ankle will be discussed over the next few weeks as much as Shilling’s in 2004, for better or worse.

Same, that’s why I think the Pats only have two legit SB wins

It feels as though the telecast is deliberately designed to make anyone who doesn’t already like the Chiefs absolutely despise them.

Yeah, it’s like some people here don’t grasp the implications of saying the NFL is rigged.

Great moment in gambling history there.

The complete destruction of the onside kick has been one of the competition committees sadder casualties

Nice moment between Mahomes and Lawrence. This won’t be their last playoff matchup.

It’s shitty. I was hopeful about the Ravens proposal last year, but for whatever reason (it’s not like we get any real insights into why votes go a certain way) it didn’t get traction.

I wasn’t aware of the rule change. But recoveries by the kicking team are far too infrequent.
Kicking team isn’t allowed to block anyone and the kicking team can’t move until the ball is kicked are the two that really put the nail in the coffin

Mahomes’s delta of how cool he looks playing vs how uncool he sounds talking may have surpassed Iron Mike.
