Chiefs advance to AFC Championship Game in wild one over Texans

Getty Images

It would be nearly impossible to start a game in a worse way than the Chiefs did Sunday.

But impossible needs a new definition after what the Chiefs did to the Texans.

The Chiefs came back for a 51-31 win in the divisional round, overcoming an early deficit with 41 unanswered points. Totally normal.

The Chiefs will now host the sixth-seeded Titans in next week’s AFC Championship Game. The Titans were the last team to beat the Chiefs, taking a 35-32 decision in Week 10.

As long ago as that seems, there was a point Sunday when the Texans were blowing out the top remaining seed, taking advantage of multiple special teams mistakes by the Chiefs, including a blocked punt for a touchdown and a fumble on a punt return by Tyreek Hill.

As strange as it sounds when you type the words and read them back to yourself, the game turned when the Texans elected to settle for the field goal which gave them a 24-0 lead.

They were initially going to go for it, but after a timeout, Texans coach Bill O’Brien decided to play it safe. Then, for some reason, he didn’t.

Going for a fake punt in Chiefs territory on the next possession was a terrible idea, poorly executed. Safety Justin Reid took the direct snap, but ran straight into the arms of Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen and the rout was on. Which isn’t something you say when the score’s still 24-0 the other direction.

That was the snowflake that triggered the avalanche, as the Chiefs proceeded to score touchdowns on their next seven possessions, and quarterback Patrick Mahomes seemed disappointed to have to settle for a field goal on the eighth.

Mahomes finished the game with five touchdown passes, completing 23-of-35 passes for 321 yards.

Tight end Travis Kelce and running back Damien Williams scored three touchdowns each, with all three of Kelce’s coming during the furious second-quarter comeback which saw them take the lead before halftime.

During that run, he suffered a hamstring injury, and was initially ruled questionable to return.

He came back. It was a metaphor. Same with the Chiefs announcing late in the fourth quarter they were out of fireworks because they scored too often.

The stunning nature of the loss will create plenty of (reasonable) questions about the future of many people in Houston, specifically O’Brien and his staff after such an abrupt collapse.

But focusing on the Texans Sunday would be wrong. This wasn’t about one team giving something away. It was about another team taking it.

  1. Bill O’Brien made the mistake of the playoffs when he called for a fake punt while up 24-7, a HC needs to think about ramifications if a play doesn’t work.

    Then, he somehow calls for a FG down by 17 in the 4th quarter before his QB reminded him of the situation.

    Fire O’Brien ASAP if not sooner.

  2. I didn’t see it – I was too busy bundling my mahomes and auto policies.

    My insurance is now slightly pudgy and benefits from a roster which is filled with extraordinary talent, has absolutely no respect for human decency, and is led by a QB on a rookie contract.

    You’d better win now Andy, while Mahomes is making less than $3 million per year and allowing you to field a squad of track stars – Belichick, Harbaugh, and the NFL have literally handed it to you.

    Sadly, only you can screw this up – and you probably will.

  3. Remember when KC spotted the Texans 24 points, then decided to play and went on a 51-7 run?

    All jokes aside… O’Brien was going to punt with about 8 minutes left, down by 3 scores. He clearly doesn’t understand “foosball”.

  4. Houston gave up a 50-burger.
    Don’t see how they can bring back their D-coordinator next season.

  5. Chiefs have to win it all this year because next year, they’re going to have no other option buy to give Mahomes with the richest contract ever.

  6. This is on Bill O’Brien. He absolutely suck. No trust in his offense, kick field goal on 4 and 1. No trust in his defense, let’s fake a punt when we up 24-7. He needs to go ASAP

  7. It is refreshing to see a real QB win – not one of those running backs who think they can throw. This game proves that this KC team is filled with leaders and men of principle and backbone. Next week will feature two gritty teams who will give us one of the best games in history.

    Congrats to Patrick and to Coach Porky Pig.

  8. 4th and inches with the game on the line BoB had to be persuaded to not punt the football. What a loser.

  9. Ten minutes since this game finished — why is Bill O’Brien still employed by the Texans? Don’t wait until you get back to Houston. Do it NOW! Fire him! Fire him!

  10. Now there’s a video making the rounds of O’Brien yelling and swearing at a Texans fan.

    See ya, moron.

  11. Mirror mirror on the wall who’s the dumbest head coach of all? Bill , no sense being stupid if you don’t show it! Leave and take Romeo with you.

  12. And the choker of the year AWARD goes to Watson
    And the most overrated qb of the year award goes to Watson

  13. If I’m the Houston ownership I would fire Bill O’Brien all his coaching staff for losing a 24 point lead in the second quarter, mismanaging his timeouts and for that awful call on the fake punt, which gave the Chiefs more momentum.

  15. Texans shouldn’t have gone for that fake punt it changed the entire game. Chiefs just had all momentum after the second quarter. Now can the Chiefs stop Henry?

  16. The FG attempt and make was the right call. The Texans were up 24-0 and in potential control. The fake punt was a hideous mistake that led a series of momentum robbing events that pummeled a Texans team into offseason oblivion. At 10:58 of the second the Texans had a historic lead, and at halftime Houston was done.

    They join the Ravens in somewhat ignominious and historic losses and their fans can, quite frankly, shut up about the Patriots!

  17. Watson and Jackson are rbs pretending to be qbs. They’re both krapernick 2.0 and krapernick 2.1

  18. O’Brien pooped his pants . He had no clue how to coach/play with a lead . He will get fired and Houston will hire Josh McDaniels who will set the franchise back even more lol

    Good season Texans. Unlike the R*vens who I have no respect for whatsoever I will tip my hat to the Texans for a good season. Chiefs were better but that’s how it goes in sports.

    If you really believe that you are (Boston) delusional. If JM was soooo sought after then someone would have already picked him up. He isn’t even the best guy left? I’ll say it again, give me one coach with sustained success after leaving Bill. There is tree. There is also no spoon.

  26. Damn, what was so funny with the Texans players after the Chiefs stormed back. They kept laughing and laughing all the way until the game was out of control…then they were solemn.

  27. Given all the noise about Lamar being the GOAT this year and the hype each week about this unstoppable, revolutionary Ravens offense, it’s strange, but right now it’s almost as if we are where we should be: talking about how Mahomes, and not Lamar, is the MVP and best rising QB by a mile- and who actually has a chance to win a SB. And talking about how Lamar is 0-2 in the playoffs and looking lost in his reads and throwing with very poor mechanics, which should be highly concerning to the Ravens if they ever want to win a playoff game, let alone a Super Bowl.
    So glad we are in the real season where you find out which teams and players are real, and which are hype machines.

  28. You guys are doing it the right way, no cheating coach, no cheating QB, and no scumbag owner. Once again, doing it the right way.

    Guys stop thinking you know more about football than NFL coaches. They have a lot to consider on 4th down with minimal time. Just because you line up in punt formation, doesn’t mean you’re going to punt.
    There is a reason you are sitting in your armchair and they are coaching. Please…stay in your lane.

    You guys are doing it the right way, no cheating coach, no cheating QB, and no scumbag owner. Once again, doing it the right way.

    Your owner has a history of drafting, signing, and employing scumbags. In 2012 alone, the organization had two domestic murder-suicides, one at the hands of a player, Jovan Belcher, and the other at the hands of another employee.
    ► Since November 2017, three players have been suspended for alleged violence against women or children during their time with the team. The latest is wide receiver Tyreek Hill, whose audio recording aired on local TV suggesting he broke the arm of his 3-year-old son.
    ► Since 2015, the team also acquired at least three players who were kicked off of college teams for alleged domestic violence, including defensive end Frank Clark. The other two are Hill and defensive back Justin Cox.

    I hope Vrabel instructs his players to teach these scumbags what it is like to be in the other person’s shoes. How anyone can root for this team is beyond me.

  33. BoB’s horrible strategic decision-making and the failures of his ex-coaches just makes me appreciate Bill Bellichick even more. He must do all the thinking for everyone.

    Stop posting before you embarrass yourself even more.

  35. I’m a Ravens’ fan and I know Lamar had a great year, but I never projected him above Mahomes or the Ravens above the Chiefs. They beat us twice in 2 years, not sure why everyone seemed to forget about KC, I sure didn’t!

  36. Worst playoff game I’ve ever seen. The NFL really outdid themselves with this one. They don’t try to hide it anymore. These games just look so scripted and fake. From the awful officiating to coaches making dumb decisions that a little kid wouldn’t playing Madden, this once great game has become a nauseating cringefest. It wouldn’t surprise me at this point if the league is rigging a Chiefs vs. Packers super bowl to celebrate their 100th season.

    Got completely punked all on his own! Hilarious!

  39. No coach on the Texans staff should be allowed to come back for next season.
    That was the worst collapse I have ever seen.
    Sure, there have been comebacks that were more points than the Chiefs’ 24 point one today, but none of those were so polar opposite as today. Destroying the Chiefs for the 1st quarter to being completely destroyed the rest of the game.

  40. KC fans, you have a pro and a con. Mahomes is a stud and your pro. The con is that your defense is hideous and has zero chance of winning a super bowl. Stopping the Texans is a matter of doubling Hopkins. Not very hard. And yet you still gave up 31 points and frankly could easily have been 40+ had Deshaun not done a Lamar impersonation and miss at least 10 easy throws in key situations over the course of the game. Deshaun played better than Lamar, but he’s still a run-first QB with an inaccurate arm and while he does make spectacular plays from time to time, he’s not a good enough thrower or reader of blitzes and defensive coverages to make enough key plays in playoff games to get very far.

  41. Andy Reid is the best coach in the NFL, excluding the guy with 6 rings. It’s a matter of time before he gets that ring. Hopefully, its this year. When he was fired in Kiladelphia, every Chiefs fan was hoping the Hunts would sign him and not let him get on a plane to Arizona.

    Chiefs fans love Coach Reid and I dare say we haven’t had a better coach than him. 7 years, 6 playoffs and 2 AFC championship games in a row. He doesnt win every game he should but I wouldn’t trade him for anyone. See ya next week coach. Its gonna be a tough one.

  42. If not for Freddie Kitchens you could easily call Bill O’Brien the most incompetent head coach in the NFL. Freddie Kitchens got fired, and Bill O’Brien should also be fired, I expect he will be fired.

  43. KC fans, you have a pro and a con. Mahomes is a stud and your pro. The con is that your defense is hideous and has zero chance of winning a super bowl.

    One bite on a great play call, one FG given up when the Texans started at their 50 and some garbage time stats at the end. Defense wasn’t that big of a problem today especially with their 2nd best player on the sideline.

But this person using that code name ghost of Myra shows just what kind of low class person they are. Myra, you see was the name of Robert Krafts deceased wife. That this person would use a name like that tells you all you need to know about them.

  50. One of the greatest collapses in postseason history and a lot of it was on the coach.

    That team is to talented to score 7 points in the final 3 quarters against a chiefs defense.

    Going for the fg on 4th and inches on the offensive side of the field and then going for it on 4th and 3 on your own side of the field, all with the lead?

    I think most people stopped watching after the Chiefs scored 6 TDs on 6 possessions.

  51. Man, the haters must be so full of crow (raven)…Reid getting fired, karma, blah blah blah…eat it, feel full of yourselves. Brace for an amazing Packers – Chiefs Superbowl 1 rematch.

  52. I can hear Stephen A Smith crying from here. In regards to Lamar and Deshaun being clowned. What excuses will he have?

  53. Andy Reid is a damn good football coach. Probably the best coach in the league today, sans mother one with 6 rings. But unlike BB, Andy Reids coaches actually do well even after they leave.

    Go and get them next week coach. Chiefs fans, have been waiting a long time for another trip to the big game. I know you have too, Andy.

    Its time!

    Go Chefs!

    Oh come on!  No need to cheat when refs do it for you.  Refs made sure Kelce got to remain uncovered for the rest of the game by throwing flags 6 min. apart in 2nd Qtr for DPI on Lonnie Johnson.  Sent message loud and clear by penalizing for typical handsy-ness that occurs in every NFL game, but is almost NEVER called.  Odd that there were multiple DPIs called in favor of KC in this game.  If KC and GB end up in the SB, Refs will be torn on who to cheat for.

    KC scoring 51 is impressive. But what’s more impressive is the fact that they win a playoff game period. Andy Reid just won his SuperBowl.
    ———————————————–
    I think your bulb is burnt out. Chiefs have won playoff games, they were in the AFCCG last year, can’t do that without winning at least 1 game. That 7 of 8 line in a previous post was about HOME playoff games not total, so now they’re 2-7 in the last 9 HOME playoff games. Though you are correct that Reid hasn’t won a SB, yet.

  58. Bill O”No”’Brian better be fired this was a disgrace. The Browns weren’t smart enough to handle McDaniels or Eric Bieniemy. They would love to work with Deshaun Phenom.

  59. Don’t forget the NFL is a business. I’d rank Lambeau and Baltimore as the two worst stadiums in terms of home-cooking refs. But with the NFL’s hyping of Lamar as the latest-greatest-most-amazing player since sliced bread crashing down after his awful performance yesterday, now the NFL has to turn to its other marketable stars. Which means A Rod and Mahomes just got thrown back into the mix. Won’t be surprised if they are in the Super Bowl, aided by some sweet calls next weekend.

  62. I predict that next season will show running QB’s the likes of Lamar Jackson have a short career in the NFL. Scrambling is one thing, being a running back/QB is something entirely different.

  63. Chiefs fan here. I thought Houston not going for it on 4th down in the first quarter was stupid. No way the Chiefs would have stopped it. That field goal was a gift. The fake punt was even dumber from that spot on the field. Another total gift. Houston should be very upset with its coach.

    Given all the noise about Lamar being the GOAT this year and the hype each week about this unstoppable, revolutionary Ravens offense, it’s strange, but right now it’s almost as if we are where we should be: talking about how Mahomes, and not Lamar, is the MVP and best rising QB by a mile- and who actually has a chance to win a SB. And talking about how Lamar is 0-2 in the playoffs and looking lost in his reads and throwing with very poor mechanics, which should be highly concerning to the Ravens if they ever want to win a playoff game, let alone a Super Bowl.
    So glad we are in the real season where you find out which teams and players are real, and which are hype machines.

    The reason for bringing the Ravens and Lamar up at all right now? The Ravens played – by far – their worst game of the year and Jackson accumulated like 500 yards of total offense. He literally just turned 23 last week, and his legacy will be going 0-2 in the playoffs his first two years? The Ravens finally have Flacco’s cap hit off the books and will be aggressive in FA and the draft. He’ll be back a whole lot better next year and hopefully the Ravens will have a WR that can consistently get open.

    Back to the game at hand, the Chiefs are winning the SB.

  65. Following up with the guy who insisted on an earlier thread that the Texans issued a “beat down” to the Chiefs in their regular season game. You now officially know what a beat down looks like. Thanks for playing.

  66. Mahomes, Kelce and Hill are unstoppable. That O’line looks good too. But… But they can’t overcome Andy Reid. He will screw this up too. He is great with consistently winning, but comes horrible short in bug moments. His clock management is non-existent.

    Chiefs fans – be ready for a heart breaker – either next weekend or Superbowl. He will take your hopes up and will eventually choke like how he always does.

    – Eagles Fan

  67. Would be interesting to know what the gambling odds were after Texans up 24-0 and whether any large bets made afterwards. Watson started throwing to 6-10 basketball players.

  68. i can’t imagine what two weeks of hearing about Mahomes going to the super bowl will be like….ugh….he’s already on every other commercial on TV.

    let’s hope the Chiefs are as interested in tackling Henry as the Pats and Ravens were.
