The rematch is set.
With their 27-10 victory over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals will advance to their second consecutive AFC Championship game, a feat never before occurred in franchise history. And they will face a familiar opponent…
The Kansas City Chiefs.
Last year, the Chiefs took a 21-10 lead in the first half of play. However, the Bengals flipped a switch in the second half of that game, roaring back to take a 27-24 lead and punching their ticket to Super Bowl LVI, where they would fall in a heartbreaker to the Los Angeles Rams.
This time around, Kansas City has some payback to deliver. Cincinnati, after a dominant showing against Buffalo in the AFC divisional round, looks like an unstoppable well-oiled machine. Meanwhile, the Chiefs have some big challenges in doing so, between their 0-3 record against the Bengals in their past three meetings and Patrick Mahomes’ ankle injury.
Kickoff for the AFC Championship game is set for 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Jan. 29 and will be broadcast on CBS stations.
