It’s down to four teams vying to play in the Super Bowl after this weekend’s Divisional Round playoff games. The winners will play in the Conference Championships next Sunday, with the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs to face off for the AFC title, and the Green Bay Packers and San Francisco 49ers to play for the NFC title.

The Kansas City Chiefs mounted an amazing, come-from-behind victory Sunday after falling behind by 24-0 in the second quarter of their game against the Houston Texans, going into halftime ahead 28-24, and eventually winning 51-31. They set or matched several records, including: 

• First to win a playoff game by 20 points after trailing by 20

• First to lead at halftime after falling behind by 24 points

• First to score a touchdown on seven straight possessions in the post-season

• Travis Kelce became first in postseason history with three touchdown catches in a single quarter (2nd quarter)

• Quarterback Patrick Mahomes tied a playoff record with four touchdown passes in a single period (2nd quarter)

• Teams combined for most points in a playoff first half: 52


Patriots' Edelman Arrested

New England Patriots star Julian Edelman was arrested in Beverly Hills Saturday night on suspicion of misdemeanor vandalism after jumping on the hood of someone’s car. The 33-year-old wide receiver caused unspecified damage to the vehicle. He was released on a citation. Edelman was last season's Super Bowl MVP in the Patriots' championship win over the Los Angeles Rams.


Jimmy Johnson elected To Hall of Fame

Former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson, who led the team to back-to-back Super Bowl championships in 1992 and ‘93, has been elected to the Pro Football of Hall of Fame. The Hall announced the 76-year-old’s selection last night as part of a centennial class chosen by a special committee. Johnson coached nine seasons, five with Dallas and four with the Miami Dolphins. The other coach in the centennial class, ex-Pittsburgh Steelers coach Bill Cowher, was revealed on Saturday.


Browns Hire Kevin Stefanski As New Coach

The Cleveland Browns hired Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski as their new coach Sunday, according to reports. The 37-year-old accepted the offer for his first head coaching job the day after Minnesota was eliminated in the playoffs, losing 27-10 to the San Francisco 49ers. The Browns fired previous head coach Freddie Kitchens following a single season, with the Browns going 6-10.
