AFC Title Game Notes

January 19, 2019

Tomorrow two original A.F.L. franchises, the New England Patriots and the Kansas City Chiefs meet in K.C. in the AFC Championship Game.

As cited here last week, this will be the first time in the 59 year history of the Chiefs nee Dallas Texans, that they will host either an AFL or AFC title tilt.

The Patriots, in an incredible eighth straight AFC title tilt, have also hosted eight (going (7-1), losing only to the Baltimore Ravens in 2012, by the way the last time a home team lost either an AFC or NFC title game).

They have not fared nearly as well in road title tilts, going (3-3)  with 3 straight losses.

N.E. did not host either an AFL or AFC title tilt until their 37th season in 1996.
