Chiefs beat Browns, lose Mahomes to concussion

Chiefs beat Browns, lose Mahomes to concussion

The

Kansas
City
Chiefs
won
on
Sunday
and
advanced
to
their
third
straight
AFC
championship
game.
And
nobody
was
talking
about
that
after
the
game.

Patrick
Mahomes,
considered
by
many
to
be
the
NFL’s
best
player,

suffered
an
injury
in
Sunday’s
AFC
divisional-round
playoff
game
against
the

Cleveland
Browns.
He
was
hit
on
a
called
run
play
and
was
unsteady
as
he
got
up.
The
Chiefs
said
he
was
being
evaluated
for
a
concussion
and
ruled
him
out
shortly
after.

Kansas
City
survived,
barely,
getting
past
Cleveland,
22-17.
The
Chiefs
came
up
with
a
few
big
plays
in
the
fourth
quarter,
most
notably
a
fourth-down
pass
from

Chad
Henne
to

Tyreek
Hill
with
a
little
more
than
a
minute
to
go
to
advance.
Moving
on
to
the
AFC
title
game
is
a
great
accomplishment
and
would
normally
be
celebrated,
but
concerns
about
the
franchise
quarterback
took
precedent.

The
Chiefs
play
the
Buffalo
Bills
next
Sunday
with
a
Super
Bowl
berth
on
the
line,
and
all
of
the
focus
leading
up
to
the
game
will
be
on
Mahomes
and
whether
he’ll
be
cleared
to
play.

The
Chiefs
won
Sunday,
and
it
seemed
like
an
afterthought.

Chiefs
lose
Patrick
Mahomes
in
third
quarter

The
entire
tenor
of
the
game
changed
when
Mahomes
left
the
game.

The
Chiefs
ran
Mahomes
on
an
option
play
on
third-and-short,
despite
Mahomes
already
dealing
with
a
toe
injury.
Mahomes
was
dragged
down
by
linebacker
Mack
Wilson
and
stayed
down.
When
he
got
up,
he
staggered
and
teammates
had
to
help
him
stand
up.
Mahomes
went
to
the
locker
room
to
be
evaluated
for
a
concussion
and
Chad
Henne
took
over
at
quarterback.

Andy
Reid
didn’t
say
Mahomes
suffered
a
concussion.

Henne
led
a
drive
for
a
field
goal,
but
the
Browns
marched
on
a
75-yard
touchdown
drive
right
after
that.
Suddenly
the
Chiefs,
who
seemed
to
be
cruising,
led
just
22-17
with
11:07
to
go.
Their
superstar
quarterback
was
back
in
the
locker
room
out
for
the
game.

Henne
threw
a
nice
pass
to
Hill
that
Hill
somehow
managed
to
keep
from
hitting
the
ground
for
a
23-yard
gain.
On
third-and-5,
Henne
made
a
great
throw
to
Travis
Kelce
for
24
yards.
Henne
made
a
big
mistake
after
that.
He
lofted
up
a
deep
pass
and
it
was
picked
off
in
the
end
zone
by
safety
Karl
Joseph.
The
Browns
had
the
ball,
trailing
by
less
than
a
touchdown.

The
Chiefs
needed
their
defense
to
come
up
big,
and
it
did.
Kansas
City
got
a
stop
and
forced
a
punt
with
a
little
more
than
four
minutes
left.
Then
a
swing
pass
from
Henne
to
running
back
Darrel
Williams
for
5
yards
on
a
third-and-4
kept
the
clock
moving.
The
Browns
needed
a
stop
on
third-and-14,
but
Henne
took
off
on
a
run
and
dove
for
the
first
down,
falling
inches
short
of
the
first
down.
With
less
than
two
minutes
left
at
their
own
49,
the
Chiefs
kept
their
offense
on
the
field
for
fourth-and-inches,
and
Hill
caught
a
short
pass
to
ice
the
game.
It
was
a
gutsy
call
by
head
coach
Andy
Reid,
and
the
Chiefs
made
him
look
smart.

The
Browns
had
a
chance
to
win,
and
all
offseason
they’ll
think
back
to
one
huge
momentum
turn
near
the
end
of
the
first
half.

Browns’
fumble
in
second
quarter
looms
large

One
sequence
probably
cost
the
Browns
an
upset
win.
Rashard
Higgins
caught
a
pass
but
was
hit
by
safety
Daniel
Sorenson

who
led
with
his
helmet
but
no
penalty
was
called

and
fumbled
into
the
end
zone
as
he
reached
out
for
the
goal
line.
The
Chiefs
got
the
ball
on
a
touchback,
a
brutal
blow
for
the
Browns.
Cleveland
could
have
run
some
time
and
perhaps
scored
a
touchdown
to
cut
Kansas
City’s
lead
to
16-10.
It
got
the
ball
first
in
the
second
half
too.
Instead
it
was
Kansas
City’s
ball
and
with
1:34
left,
the
Chiefs
drove
for
a
field
goal
and
a
19-3
halftime
lead.

It
wasn’t
exactly
Earnest
Byner’s
fumble
or
Red
Right
88,
but
it
will
go
alongside
the
devastating
playoff
miscues
in
Browns
history.

That
wasn’t
the
Browns’
only
mistake.
Nick
Chubb
dropped
multiple
passes.
Baker
Mayfield
threw
an
interception
to
safety
Tyrann
Mathieu
to
start
the
second
half.
Cleveland
couldn’t
run
the
ball
in
the
first
half
and
didn’t
do
much
to
stop
Mahomes
in
the
passing
game
before
he
left
with
an
injury.
Letting
Henne
pick
up
13
yards
on
third-and-14
was
bad.
Still,
Higgins’
fumble
was
by
far
the
biggest
error
in
a
winnable
game.

The
Chiefs
will
take
the
win
and
move
on.
Not
that
the
win
was
the
focus
after
the
game.
