Many fans had a financial stake in a Bills-Chiefs AFC Championship game, and not just punters. The NFL had already sold tickets for the game, which would have taken place at the neutral site of Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium due to the NFL’s adjusted qualifying rules after the Week 17 Bills-Bengals game was suspended in due to Damar Hamlin’s injury.
But the Bengals came up short in their divisional-round game against the Bills, winning 27-10 in a dominant performance in Buffalo.
Joe Burrow had a message for 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 year in a row. Cincinnati made an impressive comeback to upset the Chiefs in overtime last year. After another win over Kansas City last regular season, Joe Burrow is now 3-0 against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs in his career.
And Muhammad seems well aware of this fact.
The Bengals-Chiefs winner will head to Arizona to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl on Feb. 12 only on FOX and the FOX Sports app.
