How The Chiefs Got Here
MVP frontrunner Patrick Mahomes led the Chiefs over the Jaguars in the AFC Divisional Round, but not without cost. Mahomes was rolled up on his ankle just before the second half and appeared visibly hurt. It was graded as a high-ankle sprain and Mahomes said he will play Sunday. However, watch his status moving forward; with such a high-stakes game in question, it’s unlikely Mahomes misses.
The Chiefs sat atop Super Bowl 57 odds for most of the season and entered the playoffs as the AFC’s No. 1 overall seed. However, they lost to both the Bills and Bengals midseason. Their game against Cincinnati, a 27-24 thriller, was played on the road whereas this game will be played at home.
It’s Kansas City’s fifth straight AFC Championship Game berth, the second-longest streak in AFC history (Patriots, 2011-18).
How The Bengals Got Here
Joe Burrow and the Bengals did it again. They walked into Buffalo and upended the Bills with a dominant 27-10 victory. Cincinnati is still down three starting offensive linemen and Ted Karras was reportedly “struggling” with an injury in the AFC Divisional Round. Watch his status, along with Alex Cappa and Jonah Williams this week.
The run game paved the way for the Bengals in the AFC Divisional Round. Cincinnati rushed for 172 yards and gained a dominant 30 first downs in the game.
Expect the AFC Championship Game to be a bit more high-flying, barring weather setbacks.
