The Kansas City Chiefs will take a trip to Cincinnati, Ohio, to take on the Bengals at Paycorp Stadium at 4:25 p.m on Sunday. The Bengals are red-hot and are on a three-game win streak after defeating the Tennessee Titans last Sunday. 

The Chiefs are even hotter with their five-game win streak, which they extended this past weekend against the Rams.

The Bengals came away with an important 20-16 road win against the Titans. Joe Burrow threw for 270 yards with one touchdown as he completed 22 of his 37 passes. 

The teams were very identical, with the game coming down to the final possessions. Tennessee was supposed to get the ball back at the end of the game until a costly penalty on a Cincinnati field goal attempt gave the Bengals a first down to allow them to run out the clock.

The Chiefs took care of business with a 26-10 win at home against the Rams last Sunday. Patrick Mahomes threw for 320 yards, including a touchdown and a 64 percent completion percentage. 

The Chiefs' defense played a great game by holding the Rams to 198 total yards despite the Rams going a perfect three for three on fourth downs.

Let's look ahead at this highly anticipated AFC matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs in a rematch of last year's AFC Championship matchup.
