Chiefs vs. Bengals live scores, updates, highlights from the AFC Championship match

With a place in the AFC Championship match, the Bengals are on the brink of something that very few of the team’s current players or its head coach will ever remember. The last time the Bengals got this far in the playoffs was in the 1988 season, where they won 12-4 and reached Super Bowl 23 before losing to the 49ers.

It was almost 33 years ago, which means that offensive tackle Riley Reiff (33), tipper Kevin Huber (36) and long snapper Clark Harris (37) are the only players on this Bengali team who were alive when it Bengali teams were underway. . Even coach Zac Taylor, as a 38-year-old, would have only been 5 years old at the time.

And while that part of Bengal’s history has been good, the team has also gone into a less than fantastic company. In the AFC Division Round against Tennessee, quarterback Joe Burrow was fired with record-breaking nine times behind an offensive line. But he played well enough to help Cincinnati win the game.

Burrow’s play this season, combined with novice-wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase’s production, has helped propel Cincinnati back to glory. The Bengals had the league’s seventh highest scoring offense.

But the Bengals have to face an experienced team that also has dynamic playmakers. The Chiefs are in the AFC title fight for the fourth year in a row and have the advantage of playing this match at home. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight-end Travis Kelce have all played great games in the off-season.

A win for the Bengals places them in the Super Bowl for the first time in more than three decades. A win for the Chiefs brings them back for the third time in three years.
