Chiefs' playoff win over Browns becomes an afterthought due to Patrick Mahomes' concussion

The Kansas City Chiefs won on Sunday and advanced to the AFC championship game. And nobody was talking about that after the game.

Patrick Mahomes, considered by many to be the NFL’s best player, left Sunday’s game with a concussion. He was hit on a called run play and was unsteady as he got up. The Chiefs ruled him out shortly after.

The Chiefs survived, barely, getting past the Browns 22-17 on Sunday. They came up with a few big plays in the fourth quarter, most notably a fourth-down pass from Chad Henne to Tyreek Hill with a little more than a minute to go to advance.
