The Kansas City Chiefs are going to the Super Bowl! Here is the radio call of Kansas City punching its ticket to Super Bowl LIV over the Tennessee Titans.

It’s been 50 long years. Fortunately for Kansas City Chiefs fans, the wait is over. By defeating the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship on Sunday evening, the Chiefs will be heading back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1970. It was a long time coming, as Chiefs Kingdom has waited patiently for its next opportunity at Super Bowl glory.

Kansas City will face the winner of the NFC Championship between the Green Bay Packers and the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV down in Miami. It should be a Super Bowl for the ages. Here is the radio call from Mitch Holthus, the voice of the Chiefs, as Kansas City punched its ticket to the Super Bowl at Arrowhead Stadium.

The Chiefs were down 17-7 at one point but then went on a tear offensively to put the Titans out of reach for the Super Bowl. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes shined in the biggest game of his career. Once he completed that touchdown bomb to wide receiver Sammy Watkins, it was goodnight, Titans. Arrowhead erupted unlike it ever had before it is existence.

Chiefs Kingdom had several minutes to celebrate before it officially knew the Chiefs were going to the Super Bowl. But once Mahomes went into victory formation, there was no chance the Chiefs were going to find a way to break their fans’ hearts this time. This is undoubtedly the greatest season in Chiefs history since Kansas City won Super Bowl IV over the Minnesota Vikings.

Kansas City head coach Andy Reid becomes the seventh head coach in NFL history to lead two different franchises to the Super Bowl, the latest since John Fox took the 2013 Denver Broncos to Super Bowl XLVIII. Reid has now beaten the Titans for the second time in his illustrious coaching career. His candidacy for the Pro Football Hall of Fame has been undeniably validated.

Ultimately, the Chiefs won this game well before the clock struck midnight on the Titans’ season. Outside of a slow first quarter, Kansas City was clearly the better team in the conference championship. Congratulations, Kansas City! Tonight is a night to celebrate. It’s been far too long, so make the most of it.
