The AFC Championship Game is set, as the Kansas City Chiefs will face the Tennessee Titans with a trip to Super Bowl LIV on the line. Lay the points and take the home chalk.

While Chiefs Kingdom breathes a sigh of relief, here are the best tweets from Sunday's AFC Divisional round win.

Patrick Mahomes spearheaded a remarkable comeback for the Kansas City Chiefs as they overturned a 24-point deficit to beat the Houston Texans 51-31. The last time Kansas City and Tennessee met was also the last time the Chiefs were beaten, 35-32 in Nashville on November 10. Travis Kelce is the leading receiver for Kansas City with 10 receptions for 134 yards and three touchdowns.

The Texans led 24-0 after the second quarter, but the Chiefs turned the game on its head, at one point scoring 41 points without reply. Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs to victory with 320 yards passing and five touchdowns but it was the quarterback's scrambling of 53 yards on seven carries that proved fatal for the Texans. The win over Houston on Sunday was the Chiefs' seventh consecutive victory. Kelce caught three touchdown passes in a single quarter, earning the honors of the first National Football League player to do so in the Super Bowl era. It should be noted that most of that was obtained while the game was pretty much out of hand the Titans had relaxed on defense. The combination of Mahomes and Kelce was the big difference on the offense for Kansas City on Sunday.

Kansas are the first team in National Football League post-season history to win a game by 20 points or more after trailing by a margin of 20 points or more. About nine minutes of game time later, Kansas City was winning.
