The Kansas City Chiefs are going back to the Super Bowl.
Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills led first in Sunday night's AFC Championship Game, going up 9-0 in the first quarter thanks to some costly hometeam miscues -- a Tyreek Hill deep-ball drop, a muffed Mecole Hardman punt return.
From that point forward, however, the reigning champions owned the evening, with Buffalo resigning itself to field goals and the Chiefs finally coming alive with their own playmakers.
By the end, Hill, Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce had all dominated the box score, and Andy Reid had punched his second trip to the Super Bowl in as many years, thanks to a 38-24 rout at Arrowhead.
Next on the docket: A rematch with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Feb. 7, when the next Lombardi Trophy will be issued.
