It’s teacher vs. apprentice in this NFL playoff game.
Doug Pederson played quarterback and was an assistant coach under Andy Reid, and now the two head coaches will square off when the Jacksonville Jaguars face the Kansas City Chiefs for a spot in the AFC Championship Game.
Trevor Lawrence gave Jaguars fans plenty to cheer about in the wild-card round, leading an incredible comeback from 27 points down to beat the Los Angeles Chargers 31-30. Meanwhile, Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the top-seeded Chiefs got to sit out last week’s slate of games.
Both teams are riding high, as the Jags and Chiefs closed the regular season with five straight wins. This is a rematch from Nov. 13, when Mahomes threw four touchdown passes in a 27-17 Chiefs victory.
