It is also the second conference championship game in NFL history with two Black starting QBs. The first was the 2005 NFC Championship game between the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia which featured Michael Vick and Donovan McNabb.
It’s quite fitting the two are facing off with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line, considering Mahomes won his second MVP last season and Jackson is presumably set to win his second MVP this season.
Mahomes has also reached the AFC Championship game every year since he’s been a starter in Kansas City.
The two have very decorated careers in such a short amount of time and have been the standard of QB play recently.
