What a Championship Sunday, huh??

Top Performers:

  • The Patriots’ Chris Hogan had five catches for 45 yards on seven targets, including a spectacular diving grab on 3rd and 8 with less that seven minutes to go. New England later scored on the drive to take a 24-21 lead with 3:32 left.

- Hogan made a catch for a first down on the drive to give the Patriots a 31-28 advantage, good for 11 yards. Patrick Mahomes denied Hogan some glory however, leading the Chiefs down the field for a game-tying field goal.

- The former Penn State lacrosse star also made the first grab of overtime, a 10-yard reception.

The Patriots will meet the Rams, a 26-23 OT winner over the Saints (in somewhat controversial fashion after clear pass interference did not get called). The game is a rematch of Super Bowl XXXVI, where New England defeated the then-St. Louis Rams 20-17.

  • The Chiefs’ Jordan Lucas had two tackles and one pass defended.
