Harrison Butker, former Georgia Tech K, nails game-winner to send Chiefs to Super Bowl
The Kansas City Chiefs are going back to the Super Bowl!
In a revenge game for last season, Kanas City sent Cincinnati packing with a 23-20 win in the AFC Championship game. And a former ACC player’s clutch kick is what sent the Chiefs to the final game of the year.
Harrison Butker, a former Georgia Tech kicker, nailed a game-winning 45-yard field goal after what will be talked about as a controversial unnecessary roughness call on the Bengals as quarterback Patrick Mahomes ran out of bounds.
Below is the game winner. Come for the kick, stay for Butker strutting off after splitting the uprights.

Cincinnati’s ensuing Stanford band attempt failed, leaving Kansas City as the victors. Butker hit 3 field goals on the day, the 45-yarder to win it, a 43-yarder and a 24-yarder in the first quarter.
The Super Bowl is set for Feb. 12 at 6:30 p.m. EST between Kansas City and the Philadelphia Eagles.
