Is Bengals-Chiefs the NFL’s next great rivalry?
Joe Burrow has gotten the best of Patrick Mahomes the last two times they’ve met, including a wild comeback win in the AFC Championship Game last season. Sunday will give Mahomes a chance to avenge defeat and continue his chase for a second MVP award.
While the Chiefs have the AFC’s best record at 9-2, the Bengals seem to be playing their best football of the season and are getting star receiver Ja’Marr Chase back for this much-anticipated matchup.
Burrow and the passing game carved up Kansas City’s defense when these teams met in the regular season last year, but it was the defense that sent Cincinnati into the Super Bowl, stunningly shutting down Mahomes for much of the second half and overtime in January.
With Tyreek Hill out of the picture this time, Mahomes will be looking to spread the ball around and throw the Bengals’ defense off its game.
A loss to the Bengals would threaten to knock the Chiefs out of the top seed in the AFC, but Kansas City is in great position to win the AFC West.
The Bengals, on the other hand, are fighting to pull ahead of the Ravens in the AFC North. A win over the almighty Chiefs could be the same confidence-booster it was for Cincinnati in the weeks before last season’s playoffs.
