Heroes, zeros and the full blitz from the Chiefs’ AFC Championship win over the Ravens.
Travis Kelce had 11 catches for 116 yards and one touchdown, taking over the all-time lead in postseason catches from Jerry Rice and setting the tone for the Chiefs to play from in front.
Sure, he caught a 30-yard touchdown pass, but Zay Flowers’ biggest impact on the game was a lost fumble at the doorstep of the goal line on the first play of the fourth quarter — just a minute after he committed a taunting penalty to wipe out some damage from a 54-yard reception.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling — who became the poster boy for the drops that plagued the Chiefs’ receivers all season — caught a 32-yard pass just before the two-minute warning to convert a third down and allow Patrick Mahomes to kneel out the clock.
15 Minutes more that the Chiefs possessed the ball (37:30) than the Ravens (22:30), which matters more than normal in a game with two explosive quarterbacks.
