  Chiefs | Kansas City advances to championship game    Sun Jan 17, 06:31 PM

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (concussion) went 21-for-30 for 255 yards and one touchdown against the Cleveland Browns in the Divisional Round playoff game before leaving with a concussion. He also rushed for 14 yards and one touchdown on three carries. QB Chad Henne went 6-for-8 for 66 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception in relief. RB Darrel Williams rushed for 78 yards on 13 carries. WR Tyreek Hill caught eight passes for 110 yards on 10 targets, TE Travis Kelce caught eight passes for 109 yards and one touchdown on 11 targets and WR Mecole Hardman caught four passes for 58 yards on four targets.

Footballguys view: The Chiefs had to win this game to advance without superstar QB Patrick Mahomes to finish the game as he was concussed. Some bold plays by veteran backup QB Chad Henne helped the Chiefs get the win. They iced the game with a fourth-down pass play to WR Tyreek Hill. The Chiefs will see if Mahomes can get through the concussion protocol next week as they prepare to face the Bills at home in the AFC Championship Game.

  Chiefs | Darrel Williams leads team in rushing    Sun Dec 27, 05:04 PM

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams rushed for 46 yards on 10 carries against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 16. He also caught four passes for 27 yards during the game.

Footballguys view: Williams got more touches and outplayed Le'Veon Bell. If Clyde Edwards-Helaire isn't ready in three weeks for the divisional round, we'll have a committee backfield in Kansas City.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Darrel Williams rushed seven times for 23 yards and caught two passes for seven yards in a 34-20 win over the Houston Texans in Week 1.
