Kansas City Chiefs-Jacksonville Jaguars 27-20
Full Throttle Star for the Chiefs! Star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who is most likely to be the season’s MVP, switches to “favorite passing station” Travis Kelce, who only has a few more steps to run to the end zone. landing!
The Jaguars strike back! Nice lob pass from playmaker Trevor Lawrence to Christian Kirk. landing! He had already scored two touchdowns in the regular season against the Chiefs.
Shocking moment for the Chiefs: Jaguars defender Arden Key falls on Mahomes’ leg. He then holds his ankle and leaves the field. He sits on the bench, signals that he needs a bandage. But suddenly he leaps up, returns to the field and, limping, directs the next attack.
Madness! He plays two games in progress and even a pass before being treated and recorded at the quarter break. Mahomes then comes back into play but obviously continues to limp.
The reporter for US broadcaster CBS, where the game is being broadcast live, said she heard Mahomes shout from the touchline: “I’m fine, I can keep playing. Don’t worry!”
However, the chiefs still send him to the dressing room for more detailed investigations. Chad Henne replaces him. Mahomes returns, but stays outside wrapped in a thick jacket – and sees how well Henne carries it! Watch out Kelce – touchdown! “Hen, hen” sings at Arrowhead Stadium.
Well done at the start of the second half! Mahomes comes back into play. It’s clear: he can only put weight on one leg, but he bites anyway.
Landing of the Jaguars in the fourth quarter! Travis Etienne runs into the end zone. With one more point, it’s only 5:20 p.m. Is Jacksonville coming back? Last weekend, Lawrence and company overturned a 27-0 deficit against the Los Angeles Chargers in the biggest comeback in playoff history.
Mahomes hobbles – and still does magic! His pass lands at Marquez Valdes-Scantling. landing! The preliminary decision! Jaguars can’t get the curve anymore, only create a basket from 48 yards.
Mahomes after the game: “Everyone helped me! Everyone noticed that I couldn’t move. But we all stayed together. I didn’t want to leave the field. I was x-rayed, the photos were negative. So everything is fine. Thanks to Chad Henne for stepping in for me.
Touch King Kelce: “Patrick is a fearless leader! He gives everything – we give everything! We play a good ball at the time, we have the ultimate team.”
Strong gesture: Trevor Lawrence is the first to leave the field — only to wait in the player tunnel until the high five and say thank you for the Jaguars’ great season despite the loss!
Philadelphia Eagles-New York Giants 38-7
Trouble before the game for the Giants! The day before the game, a pipe burst at their Philadelphia hotel, ESPN reports. The players therefore had no water, could not shower in the morning…
The third duel between the two teams this season. The Eagles won 48-22 on December 11 and 22-16 on January 8.
The favorite with an exclamation mark begins! Point guard Jalen Hurts throws the egg at Dallas Goedert — a touchdown for the Eagles, who were out of action in last weekend’s wild card round.
Touchdown number two just before the end of the first quarter! DeVonta Smith runs into the end zone. Brilliantly simple, simply brilliant!
The Eagles continue! Boston Scott slams all defenders for a touchdown.
Now the gamemaster does it personally! Jalen Hurts rushes into the end zone for a fourth touchdown. What a show of force!
Kicker Jake Elliott is also in a good mood! Each additional point is a success.
Cosmetic result: Matt Breida scores the first touchdown for the Giants. Before Kenneth Gainwell landed another Eagles touchdown with 1:51 left.
