The Kansas City Chiefs are just a few days away from hosting the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship Game. Sunday night will feature a contest between the veteran – Tom Brady – and the youngster – Patrick Mahomes.
The age between the two quarterbacks is the greatest age difference between two starting quarterbacks in the history of the NFL playoffs.
Before the two teams take the field, the Chiefs received huge injury news. Star safety Eric Berry, who has been nursing an injury for the majority of the season, will be on the field for Kansas City on Sunday night.
Here’s the news from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

It’s a huge boost for the Chiefs as they gear up to take on Rob Gronkowski and company. Berry is one of only a handful of players in the NFL capable to playing Gronk one-on-one, even given Gronk’s rough 2018 season.
Berry missed most of the season as he recovered from a torn Achilles suffered near the end of the 2017 campaign. With Berry back in the fold, the Chiefs will likely load up on stopping the run which was highly successful for the Patriots against the Los Angeles Chargers.
Kansas City and New England kick off on Sunday at 6:40 p.m. ET.
