  1. Week 14 recap

    Sunday of week 14 saw the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs secure their place in the NFL playoffs while the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers put on arguably the best game of the season so far.

    The two sides are battling it out to finish as top seed in the NFC Conference and produced a total of 981 yards of offence and 12 touchdowns, including the 49ers trick play below.

    The lead changed hands five times as the 49ers triumphed 48-46 to move to a 11-2 record, leaving the Saints 10-3.

    In the late, late game, Seattle Seahawks (10-3) missed the chance to go level with the 49ers in the NFC West as they lost 28-12 at the LA Rams.

    The win keeps the Rams (8-5) in the hunt for a play-off spot.

  2. Best of the late games

    New England Patriots 16-23 Kansas City Chiefs

    Last season's MVP Patrick Mahomes passed for 283 yards as the Kansas City Chiefs clinched their fourth consecutive AFC West title.

    The New England Patriots, last season's Super Bowl winners, were booed off as they trailed 20-7 at half-time and again after their second straight defeat was confirmed.

    The result snapped New England's 21-game home winning streak (including postseason), tied for the longest home run in franchise history, and saw the Patriots' record slip to 10-3, a game behind the top AFC seed Baltimore.

  4. Game of the season?

    New Orleans Saints 46-48 San Francisco 49ers

    Jimmy Garoppolo threw four touchdown passes and Robbie Gould kicked a 30-yard field goal as time expired as the 49ers triumphed in an NFC showdown.

    Garoppolo completed 26 of 35 passes for 349 yards and drove the 49ers 63 yards at the death after Drew Brees had given the Saints a one-point lead with his fifth touchdown pass of the day - to Tre'Quan Smith with just 53 seconds left.

    On fourth down from the 49ers' 33-yard line, Garoppolo threw a 39-yard completion to George Kittle that, combined with a face-mask penalty on the tackle, got Gould in range for his match-winning kick.

    San Fransisco are a fantastic football team but they have the harder road going forward.

    The Seahawks have shown that they can beat anyone and they are going to be there at the end. They're going to win it all [the NFC West].

    Andrew Priestley: We may just have witnessed the beginning of the end for Tom Brady. At 42 it is very evident that his powers are waning, and his team are performing in spite of him being their QB, not because of him being the QB.

    At full-time, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes marched through the crowds, ignoring congratulations from team-mates and waiting photographers, to make sure he shook hands with his opposing number, Tom Brady.

    Respect.

    Andrew Priestley: Sheer incompetence from the officials in Foxborough. They have cost the Patriots 11 points in a very tight and important game. A 16-23 deficit should be a 27-23 lead.

  14. BreakingFull-time

    New England Patriots 16-23 Kansas City Chiefs

    Patrick Mahomes takes a knee to run down the clock and it's game over in Foxborough.

    That's back-to-back losses for last season's Super Bowl winners and boos ring around the Gillette Stadium.

    Coach Bill Belichick is gracious in defeat though, walking on to the field to embrace Chiefs coach Andy Reid. With Oakland having lost to Tennessee, Reid's Kansas City side have just clinched the AFC West.

  15. Post update

    New England Patriots 16-23 Kansas City Chiefs

    The Patriots get to within five yards with a nine-yard throw to Julian Edelman.

    Tom Brady goes for Edelman again on fourth down...but Bashaud Breeland reaches over Edelman in the end zone to bat the ball down. Great play by the cornerback, and that'll be the game.

  16. Post update

    New England Patriots 16-23 Kansas City Chiefs

    The Patriots go for it on 4th & 6 on the Chiefs' 29-yard line.

    And Tom Brady makes first down, scrambling for a 17-yard gain before sliding to the deck. The veteran quarterback roars with delight. He is PUMPED!!

  17. Post update

    New England Patriots 16-23 Kansas City Chiefs

    It's a quick series by Kansas City and they have to kick it straight back.

    And from the first play of their drive, the Patriots mix it up with receiver James White finding Jakobi Meyers for 35 yards.

  18. Post update

    New England Patriots 16-23 Kansas City Chiefs

    Tom Brady finds Julian Edelman for 13 yards, making it the third 1,000-yard season of his career. James White then makes a 17-yard catch but the Patriots have to punt after six plays.

  19. Full-time

    Oakland Raiders 21-42 Tennessee Titans

    It was comfortable for the Titans in the end after the Raiders stuck with them for the first half.

    But the home side seemed to run out of steam, just as the Titans got a second wind and the visitors dominated the final 30 minutes to canter to their fourth consecutive victory.

    Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill, running back Derrick Henry and wide reciever AJ Brown not surprisingly topped the top performers stats and the Titans sit second in AFC South on 8-5.
