49ers advance to NFC title game after dominating Vikings

49ers advance to NFC title game after dominating Vikings

After the Packers beat the Seahawks 28-23, the 49ers (who beat the Vikings 27-10 on Saturday, covering as 7-point home favorites) opened as 7-point faves over the Packers at most books, though Circa Sports opted for 49ers -7.5.

Mahomes piloted an NFL-playoff-record seven straight touchdown drives Sunday, with the Texans becoming the first team since 1940 to lose a playoff game in which it held a 17-plus-point first-quarter lead. The Titans also beat the Chiefs in a 2017 wild-card game. After all, this is a Titans team that is fearless, going into Foxborough and defeating the Patriots and then going into Baltimore and smacking the Ravens directly in the mouth.

It will mark the second time this season San Francisco hosted Green Bay after winning, 37-8, November 24.

Joseph has kicked in four games (the last two of the regular season and two postseason contests) without attempting a field goal.

According to OddsShark, the Chiefs are the odds-on favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy now that teams like the Baltimore Ravens have been eliminated from the picture.

Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes threw for four touchdowns in the second quarter to overhaul the Texans' early lead. Henry scored twice in a 2016 upset win in Kansas City and has five touchdowns against the Chiefs.

So who wins Titans vs. Chiefs in the 2020 NFL Playoffs?

The Chiefs are 0-3 against the Titans during Henry's career, and this is the most consistent version of the bludgeoning back.

The Texans pushed the lead to 24-0 on a field goal, but the next 41 points belonged to Kansas City.

"We are just taking it one game at a time, and this is all that matters", Jones said. "I think that's what can happen, is you just make it a little bit too big, you try to do a little bit too much more than you've been doing". Two turnovers also hurt Minnesota, and Tevin Coleman rushed for 105 yards and two scores.

"We know the Titans are a tough team".

Derrick Henry rushed for 195 yards and completed a dazzling touchdown pass to Corey Davis as the Tennessee Titans reached deep into their bag of tricks to shock the top-seeded Baltimore Ravens 28-12 on Saturday in the National Football League playoffs.

Sunday has finally arrived for the Houston Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs, as the two teams are set to face each other with a trip to the AFC Championship Game on the line, a feat not yet accomplished by the Texans in their 20-plus year history.

The 14-year veteran had one tackle in the loss to the Titans.
