Helmets for the Kansas City Chiefs and Baltimore Ravens^ opponents in the NFL 2024 AFC Conference Championship game

Chiefs’ QB Patrick Mahomes led Kansas City to a 17-10 road win Sunday over the Ravens in the AFC Championship game to advance to Super Bowl 2024 in Las Vegas, marking Kansas City’s fourth Super Bowl appearance in five years.

The Chiefs’ Mahomes found tight end Travis Kelce for a 19-yard touchdown with 7:41 left in the first period to take an early lead. Mahomes later found Kelce for 13 yards on a 4th-and-2 play. Kelce’s TD grab was his sixth in a championship game, setting an NFL record. Kelce had nine catches for 96 yards in the first half, passing Jerry Rice for most postseason catches, and finished the game with 11 catches for 116 yards and a touchdown. Harrison Butker’s 52-yard field goal gave the Chiefs a 17-7 lead at the half.

Baltimore narrowed the lead to 17-10 after Justin Tucker’s 43-yard field goal with 2:34 to play, but the Chiefs maintained possession at the two-minute warning when Mahomes completed a 32-yard pass to Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid became the fourth head coach in NFL history to reach five or more Super Bowls. The Chiefs now have the opportunity to become the first back-to-back Super Bowl champions since the Patriots did it 19 years ago. Kansas City will face off against the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII, taking place at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV on Sunday, February 11, 2024.
