What channel is Chiefs vs. Bengals on today? Time, TV schedule for AFC championship game

The Chiefs (14-5) will host the Bengals (12-7) in the 2021-22 AFC Championship Game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri. The game will be televised by CBS.

Kansas City, which is coming off a dramatic 42-36 overtime victory over the Bills last weekend, is seeking its third straight Super Bowl appearance. The Chiefs are making their fourth consecutive AFC Championship Game, which has also been the same amount of years Patrick Mahomes has started as quarterback.

Kansas City has won two of those AFC Championship appearances, defeating the Titans and Bills, respectively, in the last two seasons after losing to the Tom Brady-led Patriots in 2018.

Cincinnati, which won its first playoff game in 31 years this postseason, is in the AFC title game for the first time since 1988, when it advanced to the Super Bowl. The Bengals upset the No. 1 seed in the AFC, the Titans, last weekend after defeating the Raiders in the wild-card round.

Cincinnati is seeking to manifest an improbable turnaround under coach Zac Taylor, who led the franchise to six combined victories in his first two seasons before this year. With quarterback Joe Burrow and wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase as key building blocks, the Bengals have set themselves up as a team to be reckoned with in years to come.

This will be the first playoff meeting between the Bengals and Chiefs. The two teams met in Week 16 of the regular season, with Cincinnati defeating Kansas City 34-31. The Bengals lead the all-time series against the Chiefs 16-14.
