The Sports Report: Super Bowl Is Set: Chiefs Vs. Eagles

Hi, I'm your host, Houston Mitchell. Let's go straight to the news.

By Sam Farmer. The Philadelphia Eagles return to the Super Bowl.

The San Francisco 49ers struggled from the start.

The NFC Championship Game, designed to test the mettle of the 49ers, was derailed on the first possession when the starting quarterback suffered an elbow injury.

The top-seeded Eagles were in control for a while, eventually cruising to a 31-7 win at freezing Lincoln Financial Field.

The 49ers were in disarray in the top position Sunday, replacing Purdy with Josh Johnson before the pass, the team's fourth of the season, left the game midway through the third quarter.

With backup running back Christian McCaffrey the next option, Purdy returned to the game but was largely shut out until the turnover.

By Gary Klein. The Kansas City Chiefs return to the Super Bowl.

Harrison Butker made a 45-yard field goal with three seconds left as the Chiefs beat the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in the AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday for their third trip to the Super Bowl in four years.

Head coach Andy Reid led the Eagles to the Kansas City Super Bowl in 2004 in his 10th season with the Eagles.

Reid defeated the 49ers in Super Bowl LIV in Miami to wrap up the 2019 season. The Chiefs returned to the Super Bowl the following season, but lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was called for an unnecessary roughness on a late hit by Bengals linebacker Joseph Osaiah in the final 30 seconds of the game-winning drive.

Mahomes completed 29 of 43 passes for 326 yards and two touchdowns while playing with a right ankle injury.

Super Bowl LVI. shows time, odds and pause

Lakers

Broderick Turner. Anthony Davis sat on his bench in a hushed, gloomy Lakers locker room, a towel wrapped around his shoulders, anger boiling against the referees. The usually predictable forward wasn't afraid to punch the officials on a night when the Lakers were sure they were on the wrong side of the field against the rival Boston Celtics.

LeBron James' missed drive late in the fourth quarter was the most frustrating moment for Davis and the Lakers in a 125-121 overtime loss.

"He made a mistake," said Davis, who had 16 points and 10 rebounds in just his second game back with an injury.

"Honestly, we got cheated today. It was clearly a mistake. Pat [Beverly] got it all figured out, I think Brown is Jaylen Brown. They call a foul. And Bruno gets hit in the arm [and they don't help]. Frankly he said: , it is unacceptable, the referees have been bad, they have been bad tonight.

Diplomacy

From Kevin Baxter, US Secretary of State Anthony J. Blinken visited the Middle East last fall and didn't just talk about oil and natural gas, terrorism or the war in Ukraine.

He also went there to talk about football.

“We use sport to connect people, to connect people to our country. Every time I travel the world, regardless of our differences, sport unites us, connects us, connects us.
