Kansas City Chiefs Team News
The Kansas City Chiefs had a tougher task last week than the final score indicated. They had to put in a lot of effort to eliminate the Jacksonville Jaguars, and they had a big scare moment when Patrick Mahomes got hurt. Fortunately, the situation was not too serious.
The Chiefs have been the absolute rulers of the AFC for the past five years. They appeared in the Super Bowl twice, and were eliminated twice in the conference finals. Last season, they lost exactly to the Cincinnati Bengals in this round at home. That will only be additional motivation before this clash. The Chiefs offense looks phenomenal, and when Mahomes is in good mood, impossible passes don’t exist for him. The only problem is this team defense, which allows a lot of passing yards.
The Chiefs defense will be the key to this game. Their offense can score 30+ points without any difficulty, but if Mahomes and his teammates lost a few balls and the defense is unable to contain Joe Burrow, they might experience deja vu.
Cincinnati Bengals Team News
The Cincinnati Bengals haven’t had a good start to the season. They were 4-4 at the end of October, but then a positive streak began. They finished regular season with eight consecutive wins, and then in the playoffs they were better than the Baltimore Ravens and the Buffalo Bills.
Against the Bills, the Bengals were without several starters from the offensive line, but it was not felt at all. Their running game worked great, and Joe Mixon gained a lot of yards. Burrow once again played at a high level, while the defense limited the opponent to under 20 points for fourth time in a row. Stopping the Chiefs offense is a particularly difficult task, but they will be full of confidence as they have defeated this rival three times in a row.
These three wins in the last 12 months are the biggest advantage and strength of the Bengals. They found a way to get into the Chiefs heads and that is not a negligible factor. The Bengals defense is better, their offense is outstanding and they can hope for a second consecutive Super Bowl appearance.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Cincinnati Bengals Prediction
“Arrowhead” is the loudest stadium in the NFL and that won’t be a negligible factor in this clash. The Chiefs lost three straight to the Bengals and no opponent has given them as many problems in the Andy Reid era. When you consider last season’s conference final loss, it’s clear how motivated the home team will be to finally take down the Bengals.
