Championship weekend is here in the NFL. The matchups are set for the AFC and NFC Championship games as the Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC and the Detroit Lions will take on the San Fransisco 49ers in the NFC.
While sadly a majority of former Wildcats have been eliminated from playoffs, there are still a couple still alive and trying to make it to the Super Bowl in Las Vegas. The only team that will be fielding former Wildcats this weekend will be the Kansas City Chiefs.
Here is what you need to know about which former Wildcats will be on the field and how to watch the games.
The three-seed Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on the one-seed Baltimore Ravens in Baltimore at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday, January 28 and 2:00 p.m. Central Time. The game will be televised on CBS and you can also stream the game on the streaming service Paramount Plus.
DE Felix Anudike-Uzomah
The rookie Felix Anudike-Uzomah was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs at the end of the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft. The physical defensive end out of Kansas State had a total of 100 tackles, 70 total tackles, 26.6 tackles for loss, 20. 5 sacks, and eight forced fumbles in his time as a Wildcats.
The Chiefs brought Anudike-Uzomah home as the young defensive end grew up a Kansas City Chiefs fan his entire life. In his first season, he saw action in every game recording seven solo tackles, 0.5 sacks, and one forced fumble. Anudike-Uzomah has been on a line stacked with talent including players like George Karlaftis and Chris Jones.
Anudike-Uzomah will be chasing after Lamar Jackson in the title game doing everything he can to bring the likely MVP down.
CB Ekow Boye-Doe
Ekow Boye-Doe was a rookie free agent after the draft that the Chiefs signed to their practice squad. He spent the first 11 games of the season on the practice squad but was elevated due to injuries. After being elevated Boye-Doe was in for 84 special teams plays and 15 defensive snaps.
In the game in Baltimore, you could see Boye-Doe a little more with the secondary banged up a little. Cornerback Mike Edwards sustained a concussion in the game against the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round of the playoffs. If he can't go, you might see more of a rotation at that position trying to get fresh guys in their for Baltimore's speedy receivers.
