On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers to Super Bowl LIV with their respective championship game wins. The 49ers beat the Green Bay Packers, 37-20, in the NFC championship game, and earlier in the day in the AFC Championship game, the Chiefs took down the Tennessee Titans, 35-24, to secure their spot in Miami.
Kansas City once again opened the day trailing their opponent, but in true Chiefs fashion were able to make adjustments and control the rest of the game. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes showed off why he is the defending MVP, helping his team seal the win at home at Arrowhead Stadium. KC is now headed to the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years.
Later in the day, fans saw a Packers-49ers matchup and once again the home team took the W. The storyline was a bit different though, as the Niners needed no adjustments and were able to dominate the entire game.
Former Super Bowl champion quarterback Aaron Rodgers was to string together successful drives and had two fumbles, one recovered by San Francisco, and two interceptions in the game.
Fans and players took to Twitter to give their reactions to championship weekend. Here are some of the best tweets:
