The Kansas City Chiefs came up one win short of advancing to the Super Bowl a year ago, denied by the New England Patriots in a heartbreaking overtime defeat. The second-seeded Chiefs attempt to take that next step in front of their home fans when they square off with the sixth-seeded Tennessee Titans on Sunday afternoon in the AFC Championship Game.

Kansas City earned a return trip to the title game with a scintillating performance last weekend, erasing a 24-point deficit in a 51-31 blowout of Houston -- its seventh straight victory since a 26-23 loss at Tennessee in Week 10. "This was a great win but we have to put this behind us," Chiefs running back Damien Williams said after his team scored touchdowns on seven consecutive possessions against the Texans. "We have a tough team coming in here so we have to stay locked in and finish what we started." Bruising back Derrick Henry and the Titans are trying to run the gauntlet and take out the top three teams in the AFC while bidding to become the third No. 6 seed to advance to the Super Bowl -- and first since Green Bay in 2010. "Why change with what we've been doing?" said Tennessee coach Mike Vrabel, who has guided his teams to road wins at New England and top-seeded Baltimore. "I don't think it will change much. The formula for us in January is to run the football, stop the run and get turnovers."

TIME: 3:05 p.m. ET. TV: CBS. LINE: Chiefs -7 O/U: 52.5

ABOUT THE TITANS (11-7): Tennessee is one win away from the Super Bowl thanks to the legs of Henry, the league's leading rusher who rumbled for 182 yards versus the Patriots before gashing Baltimore for 195. "The most important thing is we've got to finish the game strong," Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu said. "If you watch a lot of Derrick Henry, he gets stronger as the game goes on. His first halves, they aren't that great but second-half football he takes off." Henry rushed for 188 yards and two touchdowns while Ryan Tannehill threw for two scores in the first meeting versus Kansas City, but the quarterback has thrown for fewer than 90 yards in each playoff win. The Titans limited the Patriots to 13 points before holding Baltimore's top-ranked offense to 12.



ABOUT THE CHIEFS (13-4): Patrick Mahomes threw for three touchdowns and a season-high 446 yards in Week 10 while wearing a brace for a knee injury that had sidelined him the previous two games and prevented him from having one rushing attempt for the only time in his career. Mahomes threw for five TDs and 321 yards and also rushing for 53 yards on seven carries last week. Tight end Travis Kelce, despite playing with an ailing knee, was unstoppable against the Texans with 10 receptions for 134 yards and three touchdowns while Williams also accounted for three scores, rushing for two and catching a TD pass. Kansas City did not surrender more than 21 points in its last six regular-season games and held Houston to 10 over the final three quarters last week.

EXTRA POINTS

1. Mahomes has eight touchdown passes versus zero interceptions in three playoff games.

2. Henry can join Terrell Davis as the only player to rush for at least 150 yards in three straight postseason games.

3. Chiefs coach Andy Reid, in his seventh conference championship game, is 1-8 in his career against the Titans.

Tennessee Titans vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Patrick Mahomes passed for 294 yards and three touchdowns while adding 53 yards and another score rushing Sunday, as the Kansas City Chiefs advanced to their first Super Bowl in 50 years by downing the Tennessee Titans 35-24 at Kansas City, Mo.

Mahomes rallied the Chiefs from a 10-point, first-half deficit to their eighth straight victory by going 23 of 35, while also rushing eight times. The win in the AFC Championship Game was the first in three appearances for Kansas City, which lost in overtime to New England at home last year.

Sammy Watkins caught seven passes for 114 yards, including a 60-yard bomb from Mahomes with 7:33 remaining for the last of four unanswered touchdowns, giving Kansas City a 35-17 lead. Damien Williams added 45 yards rushing, including a touchdown, and five receptions.

The Super Bowl appearance will be the third for the Chiefs and their first since winning Super Bowl IV as AFL champions. Andy Reid will become the seventh coach to guide two franchises to the Super Bowl, after taking Philadelphia to Super Bowl XXXIX, where the Eagles lost to the Patriots.

Playing behind throughout the second half, Tennessee was unable to untrack Derrick Henry, who had at least 182 yards in each of the three previous games, all road wins against AFC division champs.

Henry finished with 69 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Quarterback Ryan Tannehill added 209 yards passing, going 21 of 31 with two touchdowns. A 22-yard TD pass to Anthony Firkser with 4:18 remaining cut the lead to 35-24, but Tannehill was sacked on fourth down to end the Titans' last possession.

Mahomes broke three tackles scrambling for a 27-yard touchdown with 11 seconds left in the first half to help Kansas City rally from a 10-0 deficit for a 21-17 halftime lead.

He also threw for two first-half touchdowns, both to Tyreek Hill, as the Chiefs recovered from a three-and-out on their first series. They scored TDs on three straight possessions bridging the two quarters.

Henry carried 16 times in the first half for 62 yards, including a 4-yard touchdown that gave Tennessee a 10-0 margin barely nine minutes into the first quarter.

Tannehill also passed for a TD, a 1-yard lob to offensive lineman Dennis Kelly on a tackle-eligible play to cap a 15-play drive that took 9-plus minutes.
