Chiefs defeat Bengals to advance to Super Bowl LVII, will face Eagles 

The Kansas City Chiefs are going back to the Super Bowl. 

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, on a bum right ankle, ran for a first down, and Harrison Butker kicked a 45-yard field goal with eight seconds reamaining to help Kansas City beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in the AFC championship game on Sunday night.

In a move similar to the NFC Championship Game earlier in the game, Mahomes was hit out of bounds by Bengals linebacker Joseph Ossai, giving the Chiefs a personal foul penalty that moved the field goal closer for Butker to kick with three seconds left in the game. 

Kansas City returns to the Super Bowl for the third time in the last four years, and will have the chance to lift their second Lombardi trophy behind the head coach-quarterback duo of Reid and Mahomes.

Super Bowl LVII will take place Feb. 12th, in Glendale, Arizona.
