Star quarterbacks one win from dream clash

Sports | AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE 14 Jan 2020

Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes and Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers, two of the NFL's top-rated quarterbacks, moved closer to a potential Super Bowl clash with home playoff victories.

Mahomes threw for five touchdowns as the Chiefs overturned a 24-point deficit to defeat the Houston Texans 51-31.

Mahomes finished with 321 passing yards from 23 of 35 attempts at Arrowhead Stadium to send the Chiefs into a home American Conference Championship clash with the Tennessee Titans for a place in the Super Bowl.

Mahomes said: "All we were preaching was, 'Let's do something special. Everyone is counting us out, let's just keep fighting.'"

Rodgers completed 16 of 27 passes for 243 yards and Davante Adams made eight catches for 160 yards as the Packers pulled out a 28-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

The Packers will take on the San Francisco 49ers in the National Conference Championship game.

The conference winners will meet in next month's Super Bowl in Miami.
