With Kansas City and Tennessee advancing to next week’s AFC Championship Game, Georgia is guaranteed to have a player on a Super Bowl roster for the 19th consecutive year.

The Chiefs boast rookie receiver/kick returner Mecole Hardman and the Titans’ offensive line is anchored by 8-year veteran Ben Jones at center. Tennessee also has rookie linebacker D’Andre Walker on injured reserve.

The Chiefs will entertain the Titans next Sunday at 3:05 p.m. Super Bowl LIV will be Feb. 2 in Miami Gardens, Fla.

NFL Divisional Round Results

Chiefs 51, Texans 31

Mecole Hardman, WR: Hardman caught two passes for 19 yards for the Chiefs, who are the AFC’s No. 2 seed. Hardman added six kickoff returns for 142 yards and a 1-yard punt return. Hardman and the Chiefs rallied from a 24-0 deficit, matching the fourth-largest comeback in NFL Playoffs history. Hardman recently was named as the AP NFL All-Pro Second-Team kick returner and earlier had been chosen for the AFC roster for the Pro Bowl as a return specialist.
