Chiefs snap counts: Skyy Moore sets new career high

The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 in the AFC Championship Game

Offense and defense saw a nearly equal distribution of snaps in the AFC title game. It’s a little surprising considering the defense created two turnovers and the offense dominated the time of possession. It makes a bit more sense when you consider the team punted four times and Patrick Mahomes fumbled once.
