Chiefs Put Pressure On Titans, Cowboys Roll Past Eagles On Dak’s Big Night

Jonathan Grant | January 9th, 2022

Week 18 of the NFL season is finally here, and it got underway on Saturday with two games. Not a whole lot was on the line as far as actually making the playoffs, but there was still plenty to play for if you were the Kansas City Chiefs. Taking on the Broncos on the road, the Chiefs knew that they needed to win in order to keep up any hopes of taking the top seed in the AFC. They did just that, relying upon the dual-threat of Pat Mahomes, who racked up well over 300 yards of total offense, and a defensive touchdown via a fumble return to grind out a 28-24 victory.

Nick Bolton was the man that returned that aforementioned fumble, running 86 yards to the house to virtually seal the outcome. That now means the Chiefs would be the #1 seed and get the only bye in the conference if the Titans lose on Sunday. If the Titans win, however, they will be getting the bye. Elsewhere, the Dallas Cowboys were also in action on Sunday night, and that meant that Dak Prescott got to show out as his team crushed the Philadelphia Eagles, another team that is playoff-bound, 51-26 to close out the regular season with a 12-5 record. The road win was highlighted by Prescott’s 295-yard passing, five-TD game, with the quarterback finding Cedrick Wilson twice for touchdowns over the course of the affair. Dallas doesn’t know exactly who they’ll be facing as of yet, but this was an ominous warning to any of the teams that might be placed in front of the next week when the games really matter most.
