Jaguars vs Chiefs live stream: game preview
Securing the AFC's No.1 seed and the bye means the Chiefs played no part in last weekend's festival of mayhem, and they enter the playoffs as the outright favorites to win the Super Bowl. Despite pulling off the third biggest comeback in postseason history, the Jags remain the underdogs, and that will suit Doug Pederson just fine. Read on as we explain how to watch a Jaguars vs Chiefs live stream online from anywhere – including FREE options in some places.
If Jacksonville's season was to end right now, it would go down as an unqualified success. But the momentum they've built with six consecutive victories has captured everyone's attention, and the extraordinary manner of last weekend's win over the Chargers has made it hard not to get carried away.
After throwing four interceptions, Trevor Lawrence pulled off the unthinkable with four touchdown passes. Imagine what he could do with a stomach full of Waffle House's finest.
The Chiefs, however, are the Chiefs. With Patrick Mahomes starting, Andy Reid's men have never failed to reach the AFC Championship Game, and they've already beaten the Jags once this season. Mahomes racked up 331 yards and four touchdowns in a comfortable 27-17 victory back in November, although that was before the Jaguars found their rhythm. They're a different team now, especially on offense.
