Back-to-back playoff rematches for the Cincinnati Bengals, now 7-4 on the season and tied with the Baltimore Ravens for first in the AFC North, head to Kansas City for a re-match of the 2021 season AFC championship game.

The Bengals had a good win against the Titans last week. Joe Burrow passed for 270 yards and a touchdown, and backup running back, Samaje Perine rushed for 58 yards on 17 attempts. Tee Higgins caught 7 balls on 9 targets for 114 yards.

The Chiefs are coming off a win over the LA Rams, Patrick Mahomes passed for 320 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. 

Rookie running back Isiah Pacheco had 69 yards on 22 carries, and tight end Travis Kelce had 4 receptions for 57 yards. 

The Chief’s passing game was spread out to a lot of receivers, with the bulk of the work being done by Marquez Valdes-Scantling (56 yards) and JuJu Smith-Schuster (38 yards).

The Bengals have won 3 in a row, but this game will be a hard game to go into against a red-hot offense. 

The Bengal’s offense should be even more highflying due to the return of Ja’marr Chase, who has been injured since the Atlanta Falcons game.

The game is here at Paycor Stadium, so the Bengals have a home-field advantage. Get ready for what should be a high-scoring game.
