For the second straight week, the Kansas City Chiefs had to go on the road during the NFL Postseason to win one more game to get back to the Super Bowl. The defending Champions had a tough matchup with the Ravens for the AFC Championship in Baltimore.

In a low scoring game in which both teams defenses made big plays, the Chiefs walk away with a 17-10 victory over the Ravens. Just like last week in Buffalo, Running Back Isiah Pacheco was the key player on a big offensive drive that results in him scoring an important touchdown.

The Vineland High School Graduate finished the AFC Championship Game with 68 Rushing Yards and 14 Receiving Yards as the Chiefs offense had to overcome a tough matchup against one of the best defenses in the NFL this season. This is now the fourth straight game in which the South Jersey Running Back has scored a Touchdown in an NFL Postseason game.

Ever since Isiah Pacheco became the Kansas City Chiefs primary Running Back, this team is now 6-0 in NFL Playoff Games. Now the 24 years old, who is averaging 90.5 Total Yards per game in the NFL Postseason, will play in the Super Bowl for the second straight season.
