The Chiefs took a 6-0 lead on the game’s first drive when Patrick Mahomes ran the ball in from 1 yard out. Mahomes could have pitched on the option to Darryl Williams but kept it himself and scored easily. Mahomes has now scored in each of the Chiefs’ past three postseason games going back to last season. Harrison Butker missed the extra point attempt.
It was Mahomes’ third straight playoff game with a rushing touchdown, the longest streak by a quarterback since Steve Young across the 1994-95 postseasons, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
