Bengals vs Chiefs AFC Championship: Game time, TV and how to watch live online

The game

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs will face the Cincinnati Bengals for the AFC Championship at Arrowhead Stadium. Kickoff is set for 2:00 p.m. Arrowhead time. The game will air on CBS — locally on KCTV/5.

With this game, Kansas City welcomes its fourth consecutive AFC championship. While other NFL teams have gone to four straight conference championships, no team has ever held four in a row. A year ago, the Chiefs won a 38-24 win over the Buffalo Bills to advance to Super Bowl LV, where they lost 31-9 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

In 2021, Kansas City finished with a 12-5 record that earned them their sixth straight AFC West championship and the second seed in the AFC in the playoffs. In the Wild Card round, the team tied against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who they defeated 42-21. Then in the Divisional Round, the Chiefs hosted the Buffalo Bills, winning 42-36 in overtime after both teams scored 25 points in the final two minutes of regulation time.

In contrast, the Bengals haven’t competed in a conference championship since 1988, when they beat the Bills 21-10 to advance to Super Bowl XXIII, where they lost to the San Francisco 49ers 20-16. . In 1990, they made the playoffs again. This time they beat the Houston Oilers in the Wild Card Round only to fall to the Los Angeles Raiders in the Divisional Round. From 2005 to 2015, Cincinnati made the playoffs seven times over an 11-year span, but never made it past the Wild Card round.

So after the Bengals went 10-7 to win the NFC North in 2021 — with third-year head coach Zac Taylor and 2020 first draft pick Joe Burrow at quarterback — expectations were high. Going into the playoffs with the AFC’s fourth seed, the Bengals beat the Las Vegas Raiders 26-19 in the Wild Card Round – their first playoff victory in 31 years – and won the right to appear in the conference championship by defeating first-seeded Tennessee. Titans 19-16 in the Divisional Round.

The two teams have already met once this season. In Week 17, the Bengals hosted the Chiefs at Paul Brown Stadium in a game where Kansas City needed a win to keep a shot at the AFC’s first seed, while Cincinnati could clinch their division with a victory. Burrow completed 30 of 39 passes for 446 yards and four touchdowns on the way to a last-second field goal that beat Kansas City 34-31. Wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase had 266 of those yards — an NFL single-game record for a rookie — and three of those touchdowns.

The Chiefs are the seven-point favorites to win their third straight AFC championship and face either the 49ers or the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LVI, to be played at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 13.
