Being the No. 2 seeds in the AFC, the Chiefs get to play in the friendly confines of Arrowhead Stadium, where they’ve gone 9-2 this season. In the wild card round, they covered as 11-point home favourites against the Pittsburgh Steelers, and then repeated as 2.5-point home favourites against the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional Rounds. Since the Chiefs kicked into gear in Week 8 of the regular season, the only team to beat them were the Bengals in Week 17.
The Bengals enter as underdogs for the second straight week. They were 4-point road dogs when they faced the Tennessee Titans in the Divisional Round. Despite starting strong, the Bengals found themselves tied 16-16 with the Titans by the end of the third quarter, when Ryan Tannehill threw his lone touchdown. But with 20 seconds left on the clock, Bengals Evan McPherson made a 52-yard field goal for the 19-16 win, punching their tickets to the Conference Championship for the first time since 1988.
