The Kansas City Chiefs can still hope for a Super Bowl victory in the National Football League (NFL) despite the injury to their star quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Kansas City – The Chiefs beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-20 at home on Saturday (local time) and are the first team to reach the playoff semifinals. There, Kansas meets the winner of the duel between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Mahomes was injured in the first quarter at Arrowhead Stadium when a heavyweight opponent landed on his right ankle. The 27-year-old continued to play with a limp but later left the field for treatment. Meanwhile, 37-year-old Chad Henne took over as quarterback.

Mahomes returned in the second half, which the home crowd enthusiastically rewarded with chants of “MVP, MVP.” The effort of the visibly battered Mahomes paid off: in the fourth quarter he enabled the decisive touchdown run by Márquez Valdés-Scantling with a strong pass.

The Kansas City Chiefs will be one of two teams to play a league game in Germany next season. The NFL announced this recently. Last November, the first NFL game on German soil was held at the Allianz Arena in Munich between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks. dpa
