Tom Brady and Drew Brees lead the way in passing and touchdowns, but the only points in their playoff thus far are two targets by the Saints.

Wil Lutz’s kick allowed the Saints to score their second goal, 6-0, late in the first quarter. The Saints developed a 12-shot game that was only 36 yards long. After Brice’s pass was pushed away on the third attempt, Lutz scored on a 42-yard run.

So far, the Saints have had the best field position and more first runs, but only six runs.

At the end of the first quarter, Brady was 2 for 7 for 16 yards and Brees was 4 for 9 for 23 yards. Tampa Brady hit a first goal from midfield to Mike Evans, but Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore pushed the ball away.

Tom Brady and the Jumpers didn’t do much with their first possession of the game, making it a three-and-out. But the Saints benefited from a 54-yard boot return by Deonte Harris.

The Saints receiver dodged a shot just after catching the ball and then threw the ball down the left sideline. The Pirates finally got the ball back to their own 21-yard line.

Drew Brees led the Saints to the red zone with a seven-yard pass to receiver Emmanuel Sanders. Tampa Bay was fined for dropping the helmet. But the Saints, who have the best offense in the league’s red zone, had to settle for a field goal.

Brady-Brie. Bree-Brady. Names are reminiscent of NFL history, no matter how they are pronounced. When the two quarterbacks meet in a divisional round game on Sunday, Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady and his Saints teammate Drew Brees will set records before the game even begins.

Brady, 43, and Brees, 42, will become the oldest opposing quarterbacks in the game for a total of 85 years and 169 days. Brady has the most touchdowns, with Brees for the second time in history, while Brees has the most passing yards, with Brady right behind him.

The Hall of Fame quarterbacks will face off for the first time in the postseason. The winner travels to Green Bay to face the No. 1 seeded Packers (13-3) in the N.F.C. championship game next Sunday.

Brady, who led the Buccaneers to a 31-23 victory over Washington in the Wild Card round, is proving he can win a Super Bowl title with a team other than the New England Patriots. His first season with the Buccaneers (11-5) went without incident as Brady got to know his new teammates, including receivers Mike Evans, Scottie Miller and Chris Godwin.

More is at stake for Brees, who is said to be considering retirement at the end of the New Orleans Saints’ season (12-4). Incredibly resilient during his 20-year career, Brees has dealt with injuries the past two seasons, including broken ribs that forced him to sit out four games in November and December.

However, Brees and the Saints, who defeated the Chicago Bears 21-9 last week, have already won two games in one against the Buccaneers this season. The Pirates seemed disorganized the first week, and the Saints demolished Tampa Bay the ninth week. The teams were balanced in these games, with a strong offense and defense ranked in the top ten in the championship.

Kansas City’s best player, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, came out with a concussion. The team has allowed fair touchdowns on consecutive practices. And Mahomes’ backup Chad Henne was just intercepted in the end zone, giving the Cleveland Browns a chance to crush the Chiefs’ Super Bowl title hopes.

In a matter of seconds, Sunday in Kansas City, Mo. The Chiefs are in the running for the divisional playoffs. After a defensive stalemate, Kansas City won 22-17 against the Browns, while Henne quickly claimed his longest win in over seven years. His 13-yard scramble on third-and-14, which ended with a kick to gain the extra yard, allowed Kansas City to advance to the 48-yard line, and his subsequent 5-yard completion to Tyreek Hill allowed the Chiefs to run out of time as they occupied the upper structures. This Sunday, Kansas City takes on AFC championship runners-up Buffalo Bills, also at Arrowhead Stadium.

That’s the heart, said Tyrann Mathieu of Henne’s melee. These are the moments that get teams moving.

The Chiefs will be the first C.F.A. team to play three consecutive championship games. The only other team to accomplish this feat, the Philadelphia Eagles from 2002 to 2004, was also coached by Andy Reid.

For Cleveland, it was another crushing loss in the playoffs to a city that suffered disproportionately. But for Kansas City, the euphoria was tempered from the start by uncertainty about the state of Mahomes, who came out in the third quarter after being hit by Browns’ Mac Wilson linebacker. Mahomes struggled to get up unassisted, and after being helped off the field and into the locker room, he was sent off with a concussion that could jeopardize his availability next week.

Next, Reed said Mahomes had done well and earned all the diplomas he needed.

When Mahomes was replaced at 19-10, Henne led the Chiefs to a field goal on that shot, but then had to watch as the Browns narrowed the gap to 22-17 with two fourth-down attempts on an 18-yard shot that was topped by a 3-yard touchdown run by Kareem Hunt.

After a 15 yard Chiefs penalty, the ball was pushed back to the Cleveland 38 and Henne set up a deep ball in the end zone, but it barely reached the next receiver, Demarcus Robinson, before defensive back Karl Joseph intercepted the ball. However, the Browns are unable to move the ball and are forced to throw on their own 32-yard line in the 4th and 9th yards – and don’t recover the ball.

It was a triumphant moment for Henne, who made just nine appearances in three seasons with Kansas City until Week 17, when the Chiefs faced Mahomes and several first-timers against the Los Angeles Chargers. That’s the game he’s always played. Mathieu, who had the only interception for the Chiefs, praised his professionalism after Sunday’s game and said Henne is still preparing like he’s playing this week.

I have a lot of great players around me who have given me confidence, Henne said.

The Chiefs, who haven’t played in two weeks, didn’t beat the Browns in the early going, the smartest game. Mahomes, before being sent off, completed 21 of 30 passes for 255 yards and a touchdown and ran for a goal. Kansas City scored in their first four tries, including a goal in the dying seconds before halftime that will go down in Cleveland’s track and field history.

He didn’t come close to celebrating on the ball, but Rashard Higgins’ kick from the end zone cost the Browns a potential touchdown. As he approached the goal line and stretched the ball into the right-hand polygon, Chiefs defender Daniel Sorenson hit the ground and his shot spooked the ball. Instead of scoring a touchdown that would have cut the deficit to 16-9, the Chiefs took over at 20 waiting for an extra point. Much to the Browns’ disappointment, Sorensen should have been penalized for a helmet-to-helmet hit, but the officials failed to do so.

It’s small consolation for Browns fans, who have a long history of unsuccessful postseason play. Even the chiefs. Until Mahomes showed up. And, at least on Sunday, until Henne shows up.

The Browns have a chance to take the lead in the fourth quarter of a playoff game against Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium.

I’ll say it again: The Browns have a chance to take the lead in the fourth quarter of a playoff game against Kansas City at Arrowhead Stadium.

Cleveland’s return at the half (19-3) coincided with the departure of Patrick Mahomes, replaced by Chad Henne, who had a terrible interception in the end zone.

A play after a 15-yard penalty on a Chiefs goal by Ricky Seals-Jones sent the ball back to the Browns’ 38-yard line. As an outside linebacker looking for a ball, he waited in the end zone. Browns goalkeeper Karl Joseph got under the ball and picked it up for a touchback, giving Cleveland the ball at its own 20-yard line with eight minutes left (22-17).

With Patrick Mahomes’ injury, the Chiefs made waves and the Browns began their longest – and best – series of the season, an 18-game masterpiece that ended with a 3-yard touchdown run by Kareem Hunt. With 38 yards to go, Nick Chubb and Hunt softened the Kansas City defense and helped the Browns run out the clock.

It was Chubb who first extended the possession and gained 3 yards on a fourth and 1 from the Cleveland 34-yard line, but it was Austin Hooper who made the key drive. Cleveland, reluctant to run the ball when it had a 12-point lead, went after the Chiefs in the fourth and third. Mayfield made a perfect pass to Hooper, who dove down with his arms outstretched to catch it. Three plays later, Hunt sneaked into the end zone to cut Kansas City’s lead to 22-17.

Check out our live feed of the Browns vs Chiefs game.

Patrick Mahomes was removed from Sunday’s game after suffering a concussion in the third quarter. Mahomes had to be taken off the field and into the Chiefs’ locker room after being knocked out by a shot from Cleveland linebacker Mack Wilson.

On third-and-1 from the Kansas City 48-yard line, Mahomes rolled right on a speed option play and held onto the ball. Walking to Mahomes’ left, Wilson put his left arm around Mahomes’ neck and pulled it to the ground, causing Mahomes’ head to hit the ground. Wilson then looks to stop Mahomes as he drives into side control.

Unable to get up, Mahomes was held up by his teammates as he left the field. Chad Henn, a veteran backup, came in to replace him.

In his three seasons in Kansas City, Henne missed only nine passes until Week 17, when the Chiefs knocked off Mahomes and several first-timers against the Los Angeles Chargers. Henne played a complete game, completing 23 of 32 passes for 218 yards and two touchdowns. The Chiefs had hoped he wouldn’t get another chance this season, but since Henne will likely play the rest of the game – and maybe even beyond – they’re probably glad he got that experience two weeks ago.

The Browns scored their first touchdown after rediscovering their current offense. Nick Chubb ran for 41 yards in two straight games. Karim Hunt found the herd. This new element opened up the Browns’ offense and Mayfield hooked up with Jarvis Landry on a 4-yard line to cut the deficit to 19-10.

Baker Mayfield came on Sunday after throwing a single interception since Week 7, a sign that he has silenced Kevin Stefanski’s offense. But on the first shot of the second half, Mayfield, coming out of the pocket, didn’t see Tyrann Mathieu hovering in midfield and threw the ball to him. Mathieu returns a 17-yard interception to Cleveland’s 19, but the Chiefs can’t capitalize on Harrison Butker’s 33-yard field goal attempt from left field.

So far, Mayfield has been a reasonable facsimile of the version of himself that destroyed the Pittsburgh defense last week – and the Tennessee and Baltimore defenses before that. His halftime stats – 11 of 17 passes for 134 yards, six plays – were diminished by two drops by Nick Chubb and a demoralizing clumsy move by Rashard Higgins late in the first period.

Mayfield found open receivers in the first half and kept the ball away from an aggressive Kansas City secondary that likes to play with a lead. According to Pro Football Focus, Mayfield was 3 of 3 for 74 yards on shots that were at least 20 yards.

What the Browns didn’t do was give the ball to Kareem Hunt, who only touched it once – on an incomplete pass that was canceled by a defensive interference call. Unless the Browns’ running game gets out of hand – six attempts, 18 yards – the chances of Mayfield making a comeback are slim.

Browns receiver Rashard Higgins struck out for a touchback after being hit near the goal line by Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen on Sunday. regarding credit Jamie Squire/Getty Images

What a devastating sequence of events for the Browns, who lost a touchdown – and regained possession in Kansas City – after receiver Rashard Higgins kicked the ball out of the end zone.

Higgins, who caught a 23-yard pass in the previous game, opened up again and Mayfield found it. But as Higgins approached the goal line and extended the ball to the right pylon, Chiefs Daniel Sorenson’s safety approached and his shot dropped the ball. The rules state that if a team loses the ball and it lands outside the opponent’s area, the game ends with a touchback.

Video confirmed the decision on the field, and instead of Cleveland running 16-9 for touchdown, the Chiefs took possession of the ball at their own 20-yard line in anticipation of the extra point. Worse for Cleveland, former NFL head Gene Steratore said on CBS that Sorensen should have been punished for illegally using his helmet. But this appeal is not subject to review, Sterator said.

It’s small consolation for Browns fans, who have a long history of unsuccessful postseason play. According to statistics and information from ESPN, Higgins’ loss was Cleveland’s first loss at the 10-yard line since Ernest Byner’s infamous one-yard loss to Denver in the 1987 C.F.A. title game.

Patrick Mahomes plays, but he’s not comfortable. Apparently hampered by a major toe injury that forced him to get treatment on his last visit to Cleveland, Mahomes managed to make 13 yards in the third and eighth, but he limped. He also missed two incompletions and then missed Tyreek Hill – so close that he missed a promising possession, which is hard to do with Hill’s speed.

Toe injuries can be a problem because they affect the quarterback’s ability to land and throw, as well as if they slip in the pocket. Even without Mahomes, the Chiefs lead 16-3 after a 50-yard field goal by Harrison Butker, and their defense is doing its best to cover the Browns’ receivers.

Perhaps the most impressive feature of the Chiefs’ offense is the smorgasbord of playmakers Mahomes has at his disposal. The star of the second shot was Mecol Hardman, who picked up two assists for 51 yards – including a 42-yard catch – and somehow helped Travis Kelce cross the goal line on his 20-yard touchdown catch five plays later.

Kelce tricked Browns cornerback Denzel Ward, caught the ball in the middle of Cleveland’s 13-yard line, spun and charged toward the end zone. When Kelce jumped from the 4-yard line, he landed on Hardman, who was in front of him, blocking the play, and retreating for the score. This time Harrison Butker scored the extra point and the Chiefs lead 13-3.

In two practices, Mahomes was simply impressive, completing eight of nine passes for 123 yards and a touchdown. But he entered the blue medical tent because CBS reported an injury to his left toe. After a brief stay, Mahomes has returned to the sidelines and will likely be back in possession of the Chiefs.

Generally, teams don’t beat the Chiefs by responding to touchdowns with targets. But the Browns would love to take a third down after reaching the Kansas City 20-yard line before their car stopped.

Still, it was an impressive start for Cleveland’s offense, which lost rookie Jedrick Wills to injury in the first game. His return is doubtful.

The return of Browns LT Jedrick Wills is questionable due to an ankle injury he suffered in the first offensive game. It’s a great loss if he can’t come back.

Baker Mayfield converted the first two third down attempts by finding Austin Hooper flat on third and ten and completing the tackle right for a 6-yard gain on third and four. Chiefs cornerback Jarius Snead had the biggest play of the game when he ripped Mayfield off the edge of the field and sent him for an 8-yard loss, leading to a third-and-21 from the Kansas City 31-yard line. Two plays later, Cody Parkey added a 46-yard field goal to give Cleveland the lead. Chiefs lead 6-3.

The Kansas City Chiefs have not played in two weeks, which means they have had two weeks to improve, two weeks to adjust their offense, two weeks to determine what they do best and how they will use it against their Sunday opponent. The Chiefs ran the ball six times on the first shot – twice giving it to the speedy Tyreek Hill, who ran 34 yards – before scoring on a one-yard run from Patrick Mahomes, who, not surprisingly, showed no signs of rust, in ten plays, five minutes and 49 seconds. After Harrison Butker took a punt off a left foot attempt, the Chiefs took a 6-0 lead.

On Sunday, CBS’ broadcast of the playoff game between the Cleveland and Kansas City Browns was briefly interrupted for viewers in New York City and parts of the East Coast, prompting complaints and confusion among viewers and a rush to other means of viewing the game.

The blackout began about 20 minutes before the scheduled start time of 1505. At Eastern time, during the channel’s pre-game show as a segment with analyst Bill Cowher, an interview with Browns coach Kevin Stefanski concluded. Some viewers saw blank screens, while others were unable to tune into the channel or saw error messages indicating CBS was unavailable.

The interruption lasted about 30 minutes. He came back just after Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes for the first touchdown of the game and Harrison Butker missed an extra point attempt (the score was 6-0, in case you missed it).

Almost immediately after noticing the error, viewers began expressing their confusion and outrage on social media. The debacle seems to have particularly affected the New York metropolitan area and some other parts of the Northeast, and the show is apparently still airing on streaming platforms and on some channels that broadcast the game in Spanish.

WCBS-TV, the New York-based CBS subsidiary owned by the network itself, acknowledged the problems in the statement.

There are technical problems at WCBS affecting parts of New York City, the station said in a news release. We know and we are working on a solution.

N.F.L. declined further comment and referred the questions to CBS.

Kevin Draper did the story.

Congrats on picking the worst possible time to fail @NFLonCBS
