Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals are making history this Sunday with the franchise’s first AFC Championship game appearance since 1988. Burrow overcame a playoff record of nine sacks in Saturday’s 19-16 upset over the No. 1 seed Tennessee Titans. Burrow finished 28-of-37 with 348 passing yards, zero touchdown passes, and an interception. Rookie kicker Evan McPherson came in clutch making all four field goals on Saturday afternoon, including the game-winning 52-yard field goal at the whistle. McPherson, a fifth-round pick in last year’s NFL draft, also delivered for his team last weekend, making four field goals in the Wild Card round win over the Raiders.

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs put on a show in Sunday night’s 42-36 win at home against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills and Chiefs scored a combined total of 25 points in the remaining two minutes of the game to force overtime where Kansas City ultimately won the coin toss and sealed Buffalo’s fate with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Mahomes to TE Travis Kelce. Mahomes passed for 378 yards and three touchdowns and ran for 69 yards and a touchdown in the win making him the first quarterback in NFL history with a 107.2 passer rating in the postseason.

Sunday’s game will be the second meeting between the Chiefs and Bengals this season. The Bengals defeated the Chiefs 34-31 in week 17 at Paul Brown Stadium where Burrow threw for 446 yards and four touchdowns while Mahomes threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns.
