This won’t be the last time we talk about the promise of a game between Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs. In fact, given the bright young talent on both teams, it sounds safe to say that the Bengals are likely going to be one of the more frustrating teams in the AFC for the Chiefs for the next decade with a bright young coach in Zac Taylor and a franchise face in Joe Burrow.
The Bengals have all the marks of an exciting young team at this stage, including the inconsistent performances that show up every once in a while. The Bengals this season. They’ve rolled over tough AFC North rivals like the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers twice this season but they also lost to the likes of the New York Jets and Chicago Bears.
Currently, the Bengals are 9-6 and look destined to head to the postseason for the first time since 2015. In order to head into the postseason with some very real confidence, the Bengals would love to add a win over the visiting Chiefs to their resume. The only problem is how much the Chiefs need this one, too
What channel are the Chiefs on in Week 17 against the Bengals?
The Chiefs just grabbed the brass ring known as the top seed in the AFC and aren’t too keen to let it go so quickly knowing they only need two wins to earn that all-important first-round bye. If the Chiefs can win or even tie Cincy and the Tennessee Titans lose, they will clinch and can relax. Until then, however, expect Andy Reid‘s team to be focused and ready, which means Cincinnati should anticipate a major challenge in Week 17.
For those wanting to watch the game, the Chiefs and Bengals are set to kick off at 12:00 p.m. C.T. on CBS with Jim Nantz (play-by-play), Tony Romo (analyst), and Tracy Wolfson (sideline reporter).
