CINCINNATI — A budding rivalry is underway in Cincinnati. Less than a year after their thrilling AFC Championship game, the Bengals and Chiefs find themselves in a game that should live up to the excitement of their last two encounters. The Bengals won a shootout against the Chiefs in Week 15 last season before upsetting them in overtime for the right to go to the Super Bowl.
Featuring two talented teams, this game features an epic quarterback matchup between Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow. Mahomes has continued to thrive this season despite Tyreek Hill’s departure to Miami. Burrow also continued to play at a high level despite Ja’Marr Chase missing the last four games with a hip injury. Cincy will have Chase back, but will once again be without running back Joe Mixon, who was inactive in last Sunday’s win at Nashville.
Chiefs safety Justin Reid added more intrigue to this game when he called out a Bengals player while misremembering tight end Hayden Hurst’s name and mentioning Tee Higgins. Reid’s comments were not well received by the Bengals, who would no doubt make a statement by beating the Chiefs for the third time in a calendar year.
