Former Oklahoma running back Damien Williams, quarterback and tight end Blake Bell as well as former longsnapper James Winchester are members of the Chiefs heading to the Super Bowl.

The NFL conference championship games are Sunday, and Patriots fans will be excused if they haven't paid too close attention to the matchups.

Mahomes flashed his brilliance with both his arm (294 yards passing and three touchdowns) and his legs (53 yards rushing and a touchdown).

The piece, which was recovered by chance in December in the northern Italian city of Piacenza, was stolen 23 years ago. When a gardener cleared a patch of ivy near the wall of this art gallery, the world was stunned by what he found.

Mahomes did his usual superb job passing, but it was his 27-yard tap dance down the left sideline late in the first half that gave the Chiefs their first lead.

San Francisco beat the Green Bay Packers 37-20 in the NFC Championship Game at Levi's Stadium to reach Super Bowl LIV while Kansas City knocked off the Tennessee Titans 35-24 at Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC Championship Game.

The Kansas City Chiefs are the slight favorites to win Super Bowl LIV as they are surrendering 1.5 points on the opening line. Kansas City will be looking to play in its third Super Bowl and looking for its first title since Super Bowl IV in 1970, the last game before the merger.
