NFL Playoff Scoreboard

Prior to overtime in the final two minutes of regulation, the lead changed hands 3-times and both teams combined for 25-points. Josh Allen chose “tails” in the overtime coin toss and it came up heads. He and the Bills would never touch the ball again as Patrick Mahomes found Travis Kelce for an 8-yard touchdown pass to end the game and put the Chiefs in the AFC Championship for the 4th season in a row.

Earlier Sunday, Yakima’s Cooper Kupp came up with two, dramatic catches in the final 42-seconds to set up a game-winning, 30-yard field goal as the Rams beat Tampa Bay 30-to-27. The late-second heroics foiled a dramatic comeback by Tom Brady. Trailing 27-3, Brady led the Buccaneers all the way back to tie the game with 42-seconds left. As it turned out, it was too much time for Matthew Stafford and Los Angeles.

Saturday’s games were no less dramatic as San Francisco surprised Green Bay, winning 13-10 on Robbie Gould’s 45-yard field goal as time expired. The 49ers won despite not scoring an offensive touchdown in the game. San Francisco tied the game with 4:41 left on a blocked punt recovery and return 6-yards for a touchdown.

The weekend began with Cincinnati rookie kicker Evan McPherson hitting a 52-yard field goal as time expired to give the Bengals an upset 19-16 win over Tennessee. Despite being sacked an NFL-record tying 9-times in the game, Joe Burrow led his team into position for the game-winning kick.
