NFL playoffs: Chiefs fend off Jaguars, advance to AFC title game after Patrick Mahomes toughs out ankle injury

The Kansas City Chiefs have advanced to their fifth straight AFC championship after knocking off the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-20 in the divisional playoffs on Saturday.

The Chiefs moved one step closer to another Super Bowl title even after star quarterback Patrick Mahomes injured his ankle in the first quarter. He was replaced by backup Chad Henne for a short time, but eventually returned to play in the second half. And he did enough to hold off the upset-minded Jaguars at Arrowhead Stadium.

Mahomes wound up throwing for 195 yards and two touchdowns in the game.

Kansas City will face the winner of Sunday's Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals matchup. If it's the Bills, the AFC title game will be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, which is the neutral site chosen by the NFL due to the Bills' canceled game earlier in the season.
