The Kansas City Chiefs ran the AFC West Championship Series to five, beating the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, 33-27.
The Chiefs won the playoffs last week by defeating the Denver Broncos. Their next goal in the next regular season is to get the number one playoff in the AFC and secure it after the first round post-season.
The 12-1 Chiefs hit the 11-1 Pittsburgh Steelers in first place in the AFC.
The Chiefs, who started the AFL Dallas Texans team in 1960, have never won a back-to-back championship until the current series, which began in 2016.
Defender Patrick Mahomes got up from a rough start – in which he threw a couple of interceptions in the first quarter – leading the victory. He threw his third interception in the fourth quarter, but the Chiefs were able to hold back the pressure of the dolphins.
Eventually, Mahomes threw 393 yards and two touchdowns. It was his sixth straight match with at least 315 yards, breaking DrF Brees and Rich Gannon’s NFL record.
