Mahomes better, Bucs advance...NBA virus delays

January 18, 2021

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Kansas City Chiefs have moved on in the NFL playoffs after a 22-17 win over the Cleveland Browns. The Chiefs now head to their third straight AFC title game and will face the Buffalo Bills next Sunday. The Chiefs say star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was sidelined with a concussion in the third quarter, is doing great. Backup Chad Henne , who is 35 years old, helped ice the game with a long third-down scramble and then a daring fourth-down completion to Tyreek Hill with just over a minute left.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Tom Brady will try to advance to his 10th Super Bowl in a showdown with Packers All-Pro QB Aaron Rodgers next week. Brady led the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a 30-20 win over the New Orleans Saints in the divisional playoff on Sunday. Brady’s trip to Green Bay next week will be his 14th trip to a conference championship game — his first in the NFC. Meanwhile, Drew Brees may be done in New Orleans after 15 seasons. The 42-year-old is under contract for one more year but has not discussed any plans to play beyond this season.

COSTA MESA, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Brandon Staley will become the next head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers made the decision Sunday after having a second interview with Staley. The interview was held a day after the Rams were eliminated from the playoffs with a 32-18 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Staley has been an NFL assistant for only four years. His previous stops were with the Chicago Bears and Denver Broncos.

UNDATED (AP) — Another NBA game was called off Sunday because of coronavirus concerns, and the Memphis Grizzlies said center Jonas Valanciunas (YOH’-nuhs val-uhn-CHOO’-nuhs) will not play in their game Monday because of the league’s health and safety protocols. The NBA said the Philadelphia at Oklahoma City game, scheduled for Sunday night, could not be played because the 76ers did not “have the league-required eight available players to proceed” because of contact tracing. It was the 13th game called off since Jan. 10 because of virus issues.

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — Keith Yandle got his 100th career goal, Chris Driedger made 23 saves and the Florida Panthers beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-2. Eetu Luostarinen scored his first NHL goal, and Aaron Ekblad, Patric Hornqvist, and Jonathan Huberdeau also scored for Florida, which had three goals in the third period to pull away in its delayed opener. The Panthers were to have played Dallas last week twice, games that were called off because of a COVID-19 outbreak among the Stars.
