The Bengals have had the upper hand the last few times they've faced the Chiefs. Will Joe Burrow and company keep that trend alive on Sunday? Some people seem to think so, considering that Cincinnati was a road favorite at several online sportsbooks earlier in the week.
The Chiefs have had a fantastic season, but everyone is concerned about the health of QB Patrick Mahomes. What kind of impact will his ankle injury have on Kansas City's offense?

The Bengals dismantled the Bills on the road last week. After jumping out to a 14-0 lead, they never looked back and rolled to a 27-10 victory. They held Josh Allen in check with just 265 yards, no touchdowns, and 1 interception.
Stefon Diggs only had 4 catches for 35 yards, and Burrow was superbly efficient. He finished with 242 yards and 2 touchdowns with 0 interceptions. Joe Mixon was a force on the ground going for 105 yards and a score on 20 carries. On 3rd down, the Bengals held the Bills to just 4 of 12.
KC was able to hold on to a 27-20 win over the Jags last week, despite Mahomes missing a decent amount of time with a high ankle sprain. Chad Henne was tremendous in relief as he completed 5 of 7 passes and led the Chiefs on a 98-yard touchdown drive.
Isaiah Pacheco took his limited 12 carries and went for 95 yards. Travis Kelce had 14 catches and 2 touchdowns while accumulating 98 yards.
Cincy got the best of the Chiefs in the earlier meeting this season in Cincinnati, 27-24. They did this without the services of Joe Mixon and had Samaje Perine go for over 100 yards on the ground and took 6 balls through the air for 50 yards.
Kelce was held in check with just 4 catches and 56 yards. There is no indication that this game will go the opposite way for the Bengals here.
Mixon will be playing, which will add to the offensive threat, and Mahomes dealing with the ankle injury will give a boost to the Bengals' defense. We'll roll with Cincy to head to the Super Bowl once again!
