The game that opens the NFL conference semifinals is a duel between a team that everyone expected there against one that nobody expected. The Kansas City Chiefs and Jacksonville Jaguars are on a collision course after the third-biggest comeback in playoff history, and now the visitors’ mission is even tougher: Mahomes and company are favorites in the American Conference.
Jacksonville plays with the house money. Everything that comes from here is profit because the main objectives of the season were achieved: Doug Pederson put the house in order, Trevor Lawrence had the expected evolution and the AFC South title arrived as a reward. Even going into the match as underdogs, the Jaguars won’t have any pressure for a good result – and after last week, nobody can criticize them.
Jacksonville Jaguars (10-8) @ Kansas City Chiefs (14-3)
