The Chiefs avenged last year's overtime AFC Championship Game loss with a 35 - 24 WIN over the TITANS TO notch their FIRST Super Bowl appearance since 1969. Kansas CITY had TO dig out of an early deficit again as CHIEFS trailed 10 - 0 in the FIRST quarter. Similar to 24 - point comeback last Week against TEXANS, CHIEFS again stormed back behind their high - power offense. Patrick MAHOMES finished the day 23 - of - 35 for 294 yards and three passing touchdowns, in addition TO dazzling 27 - yard touchdown scramble in the second quarter. After a relatively slow start, MAHOMES and CHIEFS offense found their momentum as the game progressed and were in control throughout the second half. Much of the talk entering Sunday involved KANSAS CITY's plan TO stop TITANS running back Derrick Henry, who had a tally of 377 rushing yards and two total touchdowns in TENNESSEE's FIRST two PLAYOFF games. Though Henry did find the end zone, CHIEFS held Henry in check with just 69 rushing yards on 19 carries as the KANSAS CITY defense dominated the game's final 30 minutes.

DT Mike Pennel

Before the 2019 season, Kansas City Chiefs picked up defensive tackle Mike Pennel, signing him to a one - year deal to provide rotational depth behind Chris Jones and Derrick Nnadi. But after observers noticed that teams ' run defense appeared to be more effective in games in which Pennel was active, he gained not only a reputation as one of the Chiefs ' best run - stoppers, but also a cool nickname: MV Pennel. Sign to another one - year deal in the offseason, Pennel had to sit out the first two games of the 2020 campaign under NFL suspension. In those games, particularly against the Los Angeles Chargers last Sunday, when the team gave up 183 yards on the ground, Chiefs needed help stopping the run. So many fans are breathing a sighs of relief that Pennel is back for Monday night game against a Baltimore Ravens team that has gained 343 yards on ground during the first two games of the season. Pennel knows he and his teammates will have their work cut out for them. Theyre really well - round group, he told reporters on Saturday. Theyre playoff group. We all know who their quarterback is. I just think we have to meet them head - on. They do lot of power - run game, so we knew it was going to be a physical game and were preparing for that. He also noted that it will be important for his fellow defensive linemen to maintain gap integrity against a well - coach Ravens offensive line. Youve just got to do your job, he explain. You get outside your gap, doing things outside of your job and outside of the framework of what your job is supposed to be doing. So, as defensive lineman, we know weve get to hold our gaps; we ca overrun or peek inside of linebacker. We have to keep clean reads and make sure they scrape when they need to. Pennel said he missed being with his teammates during his suspension. I think it more just missing guys in locker room camaraderie, brotherhood, he say. We won the Super Bowl together, so missing those guys was something I knew Id have to deal with. He said he spent off - time doing the best he could to prepare so that he would be ready when suspension end. Just watching games watching in - division opponents, watching Chargers games, who well play, watching Ravens game. I mean, workouts and not being around guys were the main things I missed, but it was still all football. Pennel said he was trying to keep all distractions of this particular game out of his mind Monday Night Football, two undefeated teams, Patrick Mahomes vs. Lamar Jackson and so on. I dont really look at it as rivalry; I haven't played it before, he note. I just look more like an opponent with a great quarterback and a great offensive line group that does power running.

It's easy to forget now that Matt Moore actually helped the Chiefs stay afloat during Mahomes ' two - game absence, which initially looked as if it might be a lot longer thanks to the QB's scary knee injury, but the moment things finally clicked for Reid's squad might have come - funny enough - after Ryan Tannehill, Derrick Henry and Mike Vrabel's scrappy Titans upset KC in their first meeting of year. After starting the season 4 - 0, Chiefs didn't win back - to - back games for more than two months, slipping in two straight home games and nearly falling to the Minnesota Vikings during a 2 - 4 stretch from October to November. Then the Titans happen. Tennessee's inspiring victory spoiled Mahomes anticipated return, dropping the Chiefs to 6 - 4 and giving new life to Kansas City's AFC West rivals - but it also lighted fire under Reid's team. The Chiefs weren't perfect in their follow - up, 24 - 17 defeat of Los Angeles Chargers, but considering w came on road in Mexico City, it was a clutch performance. It was also the start of a winning streak that's still intact. Since coming off their Week 12 bye, Chiefs haven't lose, racking up four 20 - point routs along the way. So while Week 10 may have been reason to fear the Titans in the AFC title game, it also marked the last time KC didn't look like a pristine Super Bowl contender.
