Live updates for Jaguars vs.

The NFL Teams Tour is in full swing!

The AFC takes center stage first, as the fourth-seeded Kansas City Chiefs host the Jacksonville Jaguars in the first postseason game between those two teams.

KC, coming off a bye week for the cards, previously beat Jacksonville in Week 10 of the regular season after jumping to the 20-point lead. But if there’s one thing we know about Jags, it’s that no bullets are safe.

After going out briefly with an apparent sprained ankle, QB Patrick Mahomes re-entered to start the second half.

Later, all eyes will be on the NFC, as the top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles take on the New York Giants (8:15 p.m. ET, FOX).

Here are the most important plays!

Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs

We are out!

The Jags went three-and-out on their opening drive, but a 58-yard kick set up a long field for the Chiefs right out the gate. That didn’t stop Mahomes from making big plays early, hooking up with Travis Kelce for double-digit gains.

KC is on the board

The Chiefs took an early 7-0 lead after Mahomes hit Kelsey for an 8-yard score midway through the first quarter.

Counter strike!

The Jags didn’t delay long, as Jamal Agnew returned the ensuing kickoff 63 yards.

A few plays later, Trevor Lawrence connected with Christian Kirk for a touchdown.

Mahomes was injured

Mahomes’ right leg folded late in the first quarter, and the star caller limped severely after the collision. He remained in the game until the end of the quarter. The Chiefs’ head athletic coach sprained his ankle before the second quarter and KC settled for a field goal on the ensuing possession. Just like that, the Chiefs lead 10-7.

The Chiefs’ backup QB is 37-year-old Chad Henne, a former Jaguars who has started one game over the past eight years.


On the Jags’ next drive, JaMycal Hasty caught a 23-yard touchdown run, but they ended up kicking the ball wide.

Elsewhere, Mahomes was ushered into the locker room, and Henne scored on the game for the Chiefs.

All gas, no brakes

The Chiefs increased their lead, 17-7, when Henne connected with Kelce for a 1-yard score late in the second quarter after Isiah Pacheco hit a big to put the home team deep in the red zone.

Meanwhile, Mahomes returned to the Chiefs sideline but did not enter the game. Before halftime, Jacksonville added a field goal to make it game one, at 17-10.

Mahomes returns

Chiefs fans let out a collective sigh of relief when Mahomes got back into the game to start the second half.

It was a 10-point game at the end of the third quarter, 20-10, after four consecutive strikes by both teams and a Chiefs field goal.

Roar back!

KC’s double-digit lead didn’t last long, as the Jacksonville offense came up with a smooth trick on the next drive, followed by a 4-yard Travis Etienne punch to close the gap, 20-17, early in the fourth quarter.

Just like that, it was a one possession game with 11:49 to play.

You’re going up!

On the ensuing drive, JuJu Smith-Schuster came up with a giant 16-yard pickup to put KC in the red. Then, Marques Valdes-Scantling finished the job, staggering on a short touchdown pass to give the home team a 27-17 advantage.
