AFC Championship Game Opens Door for Ultimate Chiefs Revenge

Kansas City can exorcise some serious demons on Sunday en route to the Super Bowl. The Kansas City Chiefs are the first team in NFL history to host the AFC Championship

Game five times in a row. That's a feat in and of itself, especially considering the offseason the team had. After losing to the Cincinnati Bengals in last season's AFC

Championship Game, general manager Brett Veach went to work and renovated multiple position groups on the team. Despite having such a young team, Kansas City is one win away from

reaching the Super Bowl for the third time in the Patrick Mahomes era. The only thing standing in their way is the Bengals, and that's almost surely how the Chiefs would

prefer it. Starting with a January matchup near the end of last season, Kansas City and Cincinnati went toe-to-toe at Paycor Stadium in what was a thrilling matchup. In that

game, Joe Burrow threw for 446 yards and four touchdowns. He shredded Steve Spagnuolo's secondary, and wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase went for 266 yards and a trio of scores. While

the Chiefs' offense was efficient, the Bengals' attack was too much in what ended up being a 34-31 victory.
