The Road to the Super Bowl

The AFC

mahomes

Overall Rankings

  1. Baltimore Ravens 14-2
  2. Kansas City Chiefs 12-4
  3. New England Patriots 12-4
  4. Houston Texans 10-6
  5. Buffalo Bills 10-6
  6. Tennessee Titans 9-7

The regular season saw the Baltimore Ravens achieve the best season record in the AFC. They had a 14-2 record and easily won the AFC North division finishing with six wins more than any of the other sides in their division. Second place went to the Kansas City Chiefs who won AFC West with a 12-4 record, five wins ahead of the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. Finishing second overall was clinched by the fact that they had beaten the New England Patriots, an important result as it meant the Chiefs avoided the wild card play-offs.. The defending champions won the AFC East ahead of the Buffalo Bills. The Patriots had started the season with an eight-match winning streak. In fourth were the Houston Texans who just edged out the Titans in the AFC South.

The wild card play-offs saw a major surprise as the Titans ended the reign of the Patriots with a 20-13 win. The other AFC wild card match was won by the Texans who edged out Buffalo 22-19. The Titans caused another surprise in the Divisional Finals as they knocked out the top seeded Baltimore Ravens winning by 28 points to 12. They led by eight points at half time but a 14-0 win in the third quarter put the game beyond their opponents and the Titans had knocked out another leading side.

The other Divisional Final saw the Kansas City Chiefs involved in a record breaking 51-31 win over the Houston Texans. The 82 points were the most ever scored in a play-off match  Another major shock looked likely as the Texans won the first quarter 21-0  and that was extended to 24-0 before the Chiefs fought back with 28 unanswered points to go into the half time break with an unexpected lead. The Chiefs dominated the second half setting up an AFC Championship match with the Titans.

Could the Titans survive against the Chiefs and cause a third straight shock?   They got off to a good start taking a 10-7 lead in the first quarter. The shock wasn't going to happen though and  quarterback Patrick Mahomes led his team to a 35-24 victory to give themselves a chance of winning the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years.

The NFC

Overall Rankings

  1. San Francisco 49ers 13-3
  2. Green Bay Packers 13-3
  3. New Orlean Saints 13-3
  4. Philadelphia Eagles 9-7
  5. Seattle Seahawks 11-5
  6. Minnesota Vikings 10-6

It was a tight battle for the top three rankings in the NFC. San Francisco 49ers won the NFC West and ended up claiming top spot due to the head-to-head records over the Packers and the NFC North winners Saints. That vital second place went to the Packers  (winners of the NFC North) because they had a superior record against other conference sides. In fourth were the Philadelphia Eagles who squeezed home in the NFC East ahead of the Dallas Cowboys.

The wild card play-off round saw Seattle Seahawks defeat the Philadelphia Eagles 23-9 winning each of the first three quarters. Joining them in the Divisional Finals were the Minnesota Vikings who surprisingly beat the New Orleans Saints. The Vikings led by ten points going into the final quarter but the Saints leveled the scores and took the game into over time before the Vikings sealed the win 26-20.

The Divisional Finals saw the Packers defeat Seattle Seahawks 28-23. The 49ers took a commanding 21-3 lead at half-time. The Seahawks fought back in the second half but couldn't catch Green Bay who made it to the NFC Championship match. In the other game, the 49ers defeated the Vikings 27-10. There was only four points in it at half time with San Francisco in the lead. They extended that advantage in the second half to reach the championship match.

It was the 49ers against the Packers for a place in the Super Bowl and it was San Francisco who ran out the 37-20 victors. They didn't concede a point in the first half going into half-time with a 27-0 lead. The third quarter was shared but even though the Packers won the final quarter 10-0, they couldn't get close to the 49ers.
