  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.

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.

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.

Footballguys view: The key term in the headline is 'yet.' Watson's relationship with the Texans seems to be done and done.

Confirming previous reports, Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (concussion) did suffer a concussion near the end of the third quarter of the AFC Divisional Round game against the Buffalo Bills, according to head coach John Harbaugh.

Footballguys view: Jackson was banged up against the Bills and on the play he was concussed it spelled disaster for the Ravens. He got his first playoff win in the Wild Card Round, and the Ravens had quite a few chances to win against the Bills but did not take advantage.

  Raiders | Tyrell Williams could be let go    Sat Jan 16, 10:17 PM

Las Vegas Raiders WR Tyrell Williams may be a cap casualty this season because the team would save $11.6 million in salary cap space if they release him.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Things haven't gone the way the Raiders planned since they picked Williams up. Injury or ineffectiveness (miscast as their no.1 receiver a year ago) have plagued his time with the Raiders. They have a nice collection of young WR talent like Henry Ruggs, Hunter Renfrow and Bryan Edwards to move forward with.
