The only coach to do what Andy Reid has done with the Chiefs is Andy Reid who hosted three straight NFC Championship Game when he was with the Eagles.

With Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs holding on to beat the Cleveland Browns 22-17 on Sunday evening, the Kansas City head coach joins himself in some ultra-impressive company.

The 2018-20 Chiefs are the first AFC franchise to host three consecutive conference championship games. The only other team to accomplish this was the 2002-04 Philadelphia Eagles in the AFC. Do you know who the head coach of the Birds was back then? None other than Reid himself. Man alive! The NFL needs to name the conference championship round in his honor.

The Chiefs will have their work cut out for them vs. the Bills next Sunday

By surviving a late scare from Cleveland, the Chiefs must turn their attention to the Buffalo Bills with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Kansas City may be the defending Super Bowl champions, but the Bills have not been to one since going to four straight from 1990 to 1993. Something has to give, as we will know who will represent the AFC in Tampa next Sunday.

The big issue regarding the Chiefs entering the conference title bout is the status of superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He sustained a concussion in the second half and had to leave the game. His backup Chad Henne delivered arguably the greatest run in modern Chiefs football history, helping Kansas City advance to the AFC Championship game on third-and-14.

Look for Reid and the rest of Chiefs Kingdom to celebrate yet another thrilling playoff victory.
