With QB Patrick Mahomes sidelined for the final quarter-plus last week against the Cleveland Browns, backup Chad Henne made just enough plays to help the Chiefs pull out a 22-17 win. Despite leaving the game, all signs point to a Mahomes return after he cleared concussion protocol and was a full participant at practice this week. If the Chiefs want to repeat as AFC champions, they’ll have to beat the No.
The Packers didn't trust Aaron Rodgers on fourth down with the game on the line.
Green Bay running back Aaron Jones left Sunday's NFC championship game early in the third quarter with a chest injury suffered when he was tackled and fumbled going to the ground on a hit by Tampa Bay safety Jordan Whitehead. Whitehead left with a shoulder injury on Green Bay's next possession.
