Murray said he was encouraged, but he will not know for sure until Saturday, when the Chiefs embark on a journey that, if it ends with confetti falling on them at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta, will have defied almost 30 years of statistical trends.
This match-up would bring 41-year-old Tom Brady up against Mahomes in what could serve as a passing of the torch from one generation of quarterback to the next.
The Indianapolis Colts on the other hand may be the most risky team in the playoffs right now.
After shattering almost every franchise passing record, Mahomes picked up right where he left off in his regular-season finale.
"It's going to be a great team". Even so, the Chiefs offense may be just too much for the Colts to keep up with. The Cowboys have the ball back briefly but are picked off by the Rams' defense. The Cowboys are another team that is riding an impressive hot streak at the end of the regular season and into the playoffs.
"That's a big-time win for us, and the key was being able to hold them to 50 yards (rushing) and to rush for 273", McVay said. Still, Los Angeles hung tough by scoring 35 points of its own, taking it down to the wire until Michael Thomas' 72-yard touchdown with 3:52 to play.
Rams All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald topped the National Football League with 20 1-2 sacks, almost twice as many as Cowboys leader Demarcus Lawrence's 10 1-2.
"We won this game, and we've got two more to go". But this game swung on a few plays, with perhaps the biggest being a fourth down stop by the Rams defense as they somehow managed to prevent Zeke Elliot from gaining just one needed yard.
The Rams proved Saturday that the Super Bowl-or-bust talk that was sparked by a series of offseason trades and acquisitions, along with big-time paydays for Gurley and Aaron Donald, wasn't just hype.
Trump Says He Won't Declare a National Emergency...For Now
President Trump is threatening to declare a national emergency, which would allow him to bypass Congress and build the wall. A reporter asked, "Do you think that Congress would prevent the president from declaring a national emergency?"
This may be the most intriguing game of the weekend.
The Cowboys still haven't won a playoff game on the road in 26 years.
"How in the world do you bet against Drew Brees?".
"There was a lot of excitement here, the fans were awesome, the defence played incredible and the offence, we did enough to get the win in the end", Mahomes said. Finishing with an 11-5 record in the regular season, the Patriots lost to multiple teams that finished the year with losing records. The two teams met earlier on in the season where the Saints destroyed the Eagles 48-7, but Carson Wentz was the quarterback then. "We've done it all year long and we've gone backwards sometimes so we worked on it this week not to go backwards off the cadence", Mahomes said.
Anderson has played three games for Los Angeles, and he rushed for at least 100 yards in all three. He came in for Wentz in week 14 of last season and went on an unimaginable run to win the next six of seven games including leading the Eagles to a Super Bowl win. "We get the opportunity to play here next week and we're coming in with that mentality", Mahomes said. "We didn't get any movement".
Sunday might be even more interesting as the Eagles head to New Orleans to take on Brees. Playing one less game decreases the chances of getting knocked out of the Super Bowl chase.
As for who the Rams will face, well they will either host the Philadelphia Eagles or travel down south to take on the New Orleans Saints, depending on what the results are of Sunday's game between the two NFC teams.
