The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game for the second straight year.
Bengals QB Joe Burrow led an epic comeback to make the Super Bowl. Cincinnati is very heading into this matchup, after their beatdown of the Buffalo Bills last weekend.
During the final minutes of that game, Bengals players revealed their nickname for Arrowhead Stadium, where the Chiefs play. They affectionately called the stadium “Burrowhead” thanks to Joe Burrow’s undefeated record there.
Chiefs All-Pro TE Travis Kelce heard what the Bengals players had to say and he wasn’t too happy with it. He expects Arrowhead to be loud on Sunday night.
All of the Bengals wins have been exactly three points including the 2022 AFC Championship game. It’s worth noting that only one of Burrow’s wins has come at Arrowhead Stadium.
Bengals players are providing bulletin board material for a very talented Chiefs team. Kansas City star QB Patrick Mahomes is a high ankle sprain (from all indications he seems to moving pretty good), but you don’t want to poke the bear. Mahomes is supremely talented and this could fire him up even more.
This AFC Championship game should be a really good game and this Bengals trash talk is setting up for this to a war.
