2018 AFC Championship

  • Result: Patriots, 37-31
  • Spread: Patriots -3
  • Over/Under: 56.5

Despite throwing an interception on their second drive, Brady led the Patriots to a 14-0 lead in the first half. Then Mahomes and the Chiefs turned it on, scoring touchdowns on two of their first three drives of the second half to cut the deficit to 17-14.

Brady threw his second interception of the game midway through the final quarter, which the Chiefs returned to the Patriots’ 23-yard line. Mahomes’ first play of the drive? A 7-yard pass to Sammy Watkins that was reversed. Mahomes’ second play of the drive? A 23-yard touchdown to Damien Williams.

That touchdown was the first of four over the final eight minutes of regulation, with the Chiefs and Patriots exchanging scores on back-to-back-to-back-to-back drives.

That brought the Chiefs within three points, using three plays over the final 31 seconds to get into field goal range and force overtime. But before the Chiefs even got a chance in the extra period, Brady led the Patriots 75 yards on 13 plays to seal the game and punch a ticket to his final Super Bowl with the Patriots.

  • Result: Chiefs, 27-24
  • Spread: Buccaneers +3.5
  • Over/Under: 56

Mahomes and the Chiefs jumped out to a 17-0 lead in the first quarter, holding onto that edge until Brady and the Buccaneers scored their first points in the final minutes before halftime. The Bucs struggled to gain much momentum, though, trailing 27-10 at the start of the fourth quarter.

Brady did toss two touchdowns to Mike Evans on their final two drives, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the deficit. It was enough to cover, though.
