The Cincinnati Bengals had the look of being America’s team going into the AFC championship against the Kansas City Chiefs.
They’re much the same leaving it as they next head for the Super Bowl.
Those Bengals, thanks to lovable personalities like Joe Burrow and the underdog story they’ve had going for them, picked up a huge bandwagon following leading into the conference title game.
After their big overtime win in Arrowhead Stadium, NBA players, other NFL players and quite a few more threw their support behind the Bengals.
Here are some of the best moments that unfolded as the Bengals were awarded the Lamar Hunt Trophy.

Seeing the Bengals hoist the Lamar Hunt Trophy just feels like I’m playing franchise mode in Madden. Never thought I’d see it in real life 😂
