Many fans had a financial stake in a Bills-Chiefs AFC championship game — and not just bettors. The NFL had already sold tickets to the game, which would have taken place on the neutral site of Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta due to the NFL’s adjusted seeding rules after the Bills-Bengals game in Week 17 was suspended due to Damar Hamlin’s injury.
But the Bengals rendered that all for naught in their divisional-round game against the Bills, winning 27-10 in a dominant performance in Buffalo.
Joe Burrow had a message for the doubters — and the league.
That message quickly spread to Burrow’s teammates — and the Bengals’ official Twitter account.
Instead of an unprecedented neutral-site contest, the Bengals will return to Kansas City with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line for the second straight year. Cincinnati pulled off a stunning comeback to upset the Chiefs in overtime last year. After another win over Kansas City this past regular season, Joe Burrow is now 3-0 against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in his career.
And Mahomes seems well aware of that fact.
The winner of Bengals-Chiefs will head to Arizona to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl on Feb. 12 only on FOX and the FOX Sports App.
