NFL returns to Germany for epic showdown between Super Bowl champion Chiefs and Dolphins in sold-out Frankfurt arena | The Sun

AMERICAN football took centre stage in Germany on Sunday as the Super Bowl champions came to Frankfurt.

The Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins squared off at Deutsche Bank Park in a huge NFL showdown.

Kansas City are defending champions having won the Super Bowl in February.

And they came up against an impressive Miami Dolphins side with both teams winning six of their opening eight games.

Patrick Mahomes threw two touchdown passes – but the Chiefs were forced to hold on after a second-half fightback.

Kansas City won 21-14 to improve their record to 7-2 this season as Miami fell to 6-3.
