Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are underway at the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots.

The Chiefs didn't get off to the best of starts, as the Patriots marched down the field for a long touchdown drive.

It's New England 7, Kansas City 0 with about five minutes to play in the fourth quarter.

Of course, no one is counting Mahomes and the Chiefs out. Kansas City had the best offense in the NFL during the regular season and should put up some serious points against the Patriots today.

Mahomes, in his second season, is on track to win the NFL's MVP award. He's been doing well both on and off the field lately.

The Kansas City Chiefs' star quarterback is dating a former college soccer player, who posted a heartfelt message in anticipation of today's game.

"Just a few East Texas kids that had to grow up a little faster than expected," she wrote.

Mahomes and his girlfriend, Brittany, added a member to their family prior to the AFC Championship Game, too. They got a new dog:

Hopefully the Chiefs put on a big show for Silver and Co. this evening.

The Chiefs and the Patriots are currently playing on CBS. The winner will take on the Rams in the Super Bowl.
