Green Bay next play the San Francisco 49ers for the NFC championship.

The Divisional Round of the National Football League playoffs is in the books, meaning next weekend's conference championship matchups are all set. The last time Kansas City and Tennessee met was also the last time the Chiefs were beaten, 35-32 in Nashville on November 10.

The Titans were dominant in Saturday's victory and won the game by outmatching the Ravens in a category that most can't: physicality.

During the postseason, Ryan Tannehill has thrown for 160 yards, three touchdowns and one interception for the Titans. The Monday morning odds listed at Caesars Sportsbook have Kansas City as the favorites to hoist the trophy for the first time since 1970, after their come-from-behind 51-31 beatdown of the Houston Texans on Sunday.

" The Chiefs are the first team in National Football League history to win a playoff game by at least 20 points after trailing in that game by at least 20 points". Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the first player in National Football League history with at least 300 yards passing, at least five TD passes and at least 50 yards rushing in a playoff game.

Mahomes also showed his appreciation to Penn on Twitter. Travis Kelce is the leading receiver for Kansas City with 10 receptions for 134 yards and three touchdowns.

Both Tennessee and Kansas City are playing at the top of their games at this point.

However, the Chiefs have been one of the hottest teams in the National Football League since that Week 10 loss.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has some advice for the fan who left Sunday's game early in the hopes of propelling a comeback.
