KANSAS CITY Josh Allen Jersey , Mo. — The game was all but decided, and the Chiefs minutes away from playing in their first AFC title game in 25 years, when they drove to the goal line for a chance to punctuate their long-awaited victory over the Indianapolis Colts with a touchdown.Patrick Mahomes turned and handed the ball to Darrel Williams, who was stood up right at the goal line. Williams kept churning as the Chiefs began to push him, inch by inch, toward pay dirt.Leading the way? Their brilliant young quarterback.Mahomes toppled right over the goal line with Williams, then leaped up and threw a knockout right hook at nothing but air, celebrating not only the score but ultimately a 31-13 victory Saturday.Mahomes wound up throwing for 278 yards in his postseason debut, ran on a hobbled knee for a key touchdown, and did all the dirty work — like that Reggie Bush-style shove — necessary to keep alive the Chiefs’ chances of playing in their first Super Bowl since Len Dawson led the way in 1970.“My favorite thing was finishing the game at the end,” Mahomes said of the late touchdown. “We’ve been in those situations and didn’t execute to our standards. It shows the attitude and effort you need to win football games.”Especially in cold, snowy January weather, when the games are most meaningful.Mahomes answered the call Saturday amid tremendous pressure and great expectations. The Chiefs traded up to pick him 10th overall a couple of years ago http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/jawaan-taylor-jersey-cheap , then allowed him to learn the ropes for a year under Alex Smith, before turning him loose on an unsuspecting league.The young quarterback with the curly Mohawk, massive arm and moxie in spades threw for more than 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns in the regular season, and shattered just about every franchise passing record. But nobody knew how he would respond to the playoffs, where the Chiefs have given their fans nothing but agony and heartbreak since Joe Montana was taking snaps from center.All he did was lead Kansas City to touchdowns on its first two possessions to set the tone against a resurgent Colts defense, then lead his team to a field goal and another score before halftime.The last one was his rushing touchdown, which came after he took a wicked hit in the pocket.“It was a little cold out there so I was aching for a second,” said Mahomes, who no doubt caused heart palpitations across Kansas City when he came up limping. “But it feels fine, it really is. It got me there for a second, a little stinger I guess, but I was feeling pretty good after that.”100<button class="view-gallery">View Gallery</button> Gallery:View from the sidelines: NFL cheerleaders 2018Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports | Raj MehtaMahomes was sacked four times and threw a couple of wobbly passes Josh Oliver Jersey , and he had an interception wiped away by an offside call, but never made the crucial mistake that could have turned the game.It helped that his biggest options all showed up.Damien Williams ran for 129 yards and a score against a Colts defense that had not allowed a 100-yard rusher this season. Travis Kelce had seven catches for 108 yards. Tyreek Hill had 72 yards through the air and ran 36 yards for a score. And wide receiver Sammy Watkins even pitched in for the first time since hurting his foot during a game in November.“We ran the ball, and that’s the biggest thing,” Kelce said. “When you have the lead, you’ve got to be able to run the ball late in the game. Damien Williams, man. He runs his tail off for everybody on this team. Sure enough it showed today that he can finish a game off for us.”Pulling the trigger, though, was the Chiefs’ unflappable first-year starter.He did it with his arm. He did it with his legs. He even did it with his voice, drawing the Colts offside so many times that their defensive line was visibly frustrated.“Mahomes was No. 1 in the NFL at drawing people offside. And so we knew that going in,” Colts coach Frank Reich said. “We talked about it, and he still got us. For a young guy, the way to work the cadence the way that he does, I give him credit for that.”It wasn’t the only reason to heap praise on him Saturday. ORCHARD PARK http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/quincy-williams-ii-jersey-cheap , N.Y. (AP) — Coming off a 17-player haul in free agency, Brandon Beane has plenty of options entering the NFL draft. And the Bills general manager isn’t going to restrict himself to focusing on one or two positions when it comes time for Buffalo to make the No. 9 selection.Name a position outside of quarterback, after Buffalo selected Josh Allen with its first pick a year ago, and Beane won’t rule it out. And that includes an offensive lineman, even though Buffalo added seven newcomers already this offseason.“I wouldn’t say it’s less likely, no. I think there’s some good ones,” Beane said.“Guys, I’m serious. We’re taking the best player,” Beane added, before noting he and his scouting staff will hold several in-house mock drafts to prep for the draft. “I feel confident that we’ll get a good player at nine. And I’ll be curious how these mocks go, but I can see a lot of scenarios of (selecting a player from) either side of the ball.”With that in mind, it wouldn’t be out of the question for Buffalo to select an offensive tackle such as Florida’s Jawaan Taylor, should he be available. Then there’s the option of the Bills addressing their defensive line with Houston tackle Ed Oliver Ryquell Armstead Jersey , or adding a pass-rusher, such Michigan’s Rashan Gary.Tight end, a position long lacking in production in Buffalo, might even be on the table with Iowa’s T.J. Hockenson being linked to the Bills in various mock drafts.Beane’s point is Buffalo’s roster is in a much better place when it comes to competitive depth and salary structure entering his third year. The change is the result of Beane spending the past two years purging high-priced contracts and underperforming players, and rebuilding through youth by stockpiling draft picks.The overhaul resulted in the Bills taking a step back in going 6-10 a year after a 9-7 finish in which they sneaked into the playoffs to end a 17-year drought.The benefits were evident a month ago. With more than $70 million in salary cap space available, Beane took an aggressive approach by filling numerous needs in free agency. He focused mostly on surrounding Allen with more talent by upgrading what had been a patchwork and inexperienced offense.After center Mitch Morse, the most notable additions were receivers Cole Beasley and John Brown, who join a relatively untested group of receivers made up of Zay Jones and Robert Foster.With a defense that allowed the second-fewest yards in the league returning mostly intact, the expectation now is for Allen to build off a promising finish to his rookie season and help the Bills take the next step toward being a contender.Coach Sean McDermott isn’t buying into the notion the newcomers make the Bills any better.“Right now, they’re just names on paper,” McDermott said. “What we have to do is find a way to bring these names that are on the paper and bringing them to life.”DRAFT ASSETSThe Bills have 10 selections, with seven spread over the final four rounds. With only one second- and third-round pick, it makes it difficult — but not impossible —for Buffalo to move up in the first round as it did twice a year ago. Don’t rule out the Bills combining their later-round picks to trade up should the opportunity present itself.WHEELING AND DEALINGBeane spent the first round last year maneuvering up the draft board. He traded up five spots to select Allen with the No. 7 pick http://www.jaguarscheapstore.com/gardner-minshew-ii-jersey-cheap , and then moved up six draft positions to select Virginia Tech linebacker Tremaine Edmunds at 16.MOCK MISSAsked about how many times his in-house mock draft finished with Buffalo landing both Allen and Edmunds, Beane said: “I think we were zero for zero.”Though he always considered the likelihood of trading up to select Allen, not once did he consider being in a position to move up and select Edmunds. “We always made a pick at 22 or, we used that pick to move up, so we didn’t have it,” he said.WHO’S LEFT?With defensive tackle Kyle Williams retiring after 13 seasons, the Bills have five players left who were on the roster since coach Rex Ryan’s final year in 2016.And of those five, defensive end Shaq Lawson (a first-round pick in 2016), is the lone player drafted by Buffalo who remains. Defensive end Jerry Hughes, acquired in a trade in 2013, is now Buffalo’s longest-serving active player.AGE-OLD QUESTIONBeane doesn’t consider drafting a running back a high priority even though Buffalo’s backfield currently features 30-year-old LeSean McCoy and 35-year-old free-agent addition Frank Gore. The GM said if he doesn’t select a running back, there are still several free-agent prospects available.
