The Cincinnati Bengals are a game away from playing in Super Bowl LVI after advancing to the AFC Championship Game for the first time since Jan. 8, 1989 this weekend.
The Bengals beat the No. 1 seed in the AFC, the Titans, 19-16 and now play the two-time defending AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs on Jan. 30 in Kansas City.
Cincinnati has never lost an AFC Championship Game in two previous matchups in 1989 and 1982. A win in Kansas City would advance the Bengals to the franchise’s third Super Bowl appearance where they would play either the Los Angeles Rams or the San Francisco 49ers. Both of the Bengals Super Bowl losses came to Joe Montana and the 49ers.
But first the Bengals have the tough task of beating Patrick Mahomes and the high-powered Chiefs … again. Here’s what you need to know about the game.
