    Patrick Mahomes now knows who the Chiefs will face in the AFC Championship Game and the QB had the perfect tweet to welcome the matchup with the Bengals. After beating the Jaguars on Saturday, the Chiefs had to wait to find out who they would battle in the AFC Championship Game. On Sunday, the Bengals beat the Bills, 27-10, to end the idea of a neutral-site AFC Championship Game and set up a rematch of last year’s conference title tilt. Now, Patrick Mahomes and his team have to wait to get their chance at revenge on Joe Burrow and the Bengals.Patrick Mahomes can’t wait for AFC Championship Game matchup with the Bengals⏰ — Patrick Mahomes II (@PatrickMahomes) January 22, 2023 After the final whistle in Buffalo, Mahomes sent out a tweet to express his feelings on the upcoming game. It was an emoji of a clock. And it’s ticking. Last year it was the Chiefs who had to go through the Bills to make it to the conference championship game. They won an all-time thriller in overtime but couldn’t keep...
    Joe Burrow does not like to say much, but he dropped the line of the year after the Cincinnati Bengals eliminated the Buffalo Bills.  Who better than Joe Burrow to drop the quote of the year at the exact right time? Prior to the divisional playoff game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals, the NFL announced the sale of tickets to a neutral-site AFC Championship game between Buffalo and the Kansas City Chiefs in Atlanta should it have come to fruition. The Bengals were gracious the night of the Damar Hamlin injury that led to the potential neutral-site game, and it was wonderful to see Hamlin at the Divisional Round rematch between the Bills and Bengals. However, they felt disrespected leading up to Sunday’s playoff clash. No doubt Burrow and his teammates were livid, and they took it out on the Bills in a 27-10 win, booking a trip to the AFC Championship Game, where they will face Patrick Mahomes, once again as an underdog, similar to last year, when they pulled off an upset. Burrow was asked about...
    The Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Buffalo Bills to advance to the AFC Championship Game. For the second year in a row, the Cincinnati Bengals will be playing for the Lamar Hunt Trophy. The defending AFC champions went on the road and handled the Buffalo Bills throughout the entire ballgame. It was an emotional, snow-covered game in Orchard Park, but it was abundantly clear from opening kickoff that Joe Burrow was cooler than the other side of the pillow. Though Buffalo had a great season, Cincinnati might be the best team in the AFC now, and going forward. So … who do the Bengals get to play in the AFC Championship Game next weekend?Who will the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2022 AFC Championship Game?It will be a repeat of last year’s conference title bout at the same place, if you can believe. Yes, the Kansas City Chiefs will host the Bengals at Arrowhead Stadium next weekend.

    The Kansas City Chiefs are going back to the AFC Championship Game once again. For the fifth straight season, the Kansas City Chiefs will play in the AFC Championship Game. This has been the case ever since Patrick Mahomes took over the offense from Alex Smith. Though the pathway to the Super Bowl out of the AFC has largely run through Arrowhead Stadium of late, it may take a different path next weekend. This all depends on the outcome of the other AFC Divisional Round game being played between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals. The conference title bout will either be played at Arrowhead or Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.Where will the 2022 AFC Championship Game be played at?Even though the Chiefs got the first-round bye as the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoff picture, they might have to play a neutral-site championship game next week if the Bills hold serve and beat the Bengals in Buffalo. This is because the Bills at Bengals Monday night game was canceled. Buffalo finished half a game back of the Chiefs in...
    Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes suffered a high-ankle sprain against the Jaguars. Will he be able to play in the AFC Championship Game? Disaster almost struck the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday as it pertains to superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Near the end of the first quarter of the Divisional Round matchup against the Jaguars, the QB was tackled and had his ankle rolled up awkwardly on the ground. Mahomes stayed in the game for the remainder of that drive but then was forced by trainers and the coaching staff to go back into the locker room. He underwent X-rays that were negative but it was reported that he suffered a high-ankle sprain. Thereafter, though, he did return to the game for the second half, but was clearly still hobbled. Thankfully, he and a spirited quarter from Chad Henne propelled the Chiefs to the win where they will now head to the AFC Championship Game for a matchup against either the Bengals at Arrowhead Stadium or the Bills in Atlanta due to the NFL’s decision in trying to give fairness after...
    Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon isn’t happy that the NFL is beginning to sell Kansas City Chiefs-Buffalo Bills AFC Championship Game in Atlanta. The Divisional Round of the NFL playoffs begins this weekend. On the AFC side of the bracket, there could be an interesting situation if the Kansas City Chiefs defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Buffalo Bills defeat the Cincinnati Bengals. If both of those teams win, then the AFC Championship Game will be held at Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, home of the Falcons, due to seeding. The Bills have one less game played after their Week 17 game against the Bengals was canceled due to safety Damar Hamlin suffering cardiac arrest. It will be the first neutral site conference championship game if it happens. This Wednesday, the NFL began selling tickets to the potential Chiefs vs. Bills game, and those sales are already massive: New from ⁦@NFL345⁩ pic.twitter.com/5QD0qjWVrX — Brian McCarthy (@NFLprguy) January 20, 2023 Bengals running back Joe Mixon wasn’t happy about the league beginning to sell tickets even though the AFC Championship...

    The Cincinnati Bengals just keep ending postseason droughts, and their latest victory has them in their first AFC championship game in 33 years. Rookie Evan McPherson kicked a 52-yard field goal as time expired, lifting the fourth-seeded Bengals past the top-seeded Tennessee Titans 19-16 on Saturday to end the NFL’s longest active road playoff skid. “He’s got ice in his veins,” Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow said of McPherson. “There’s not much more to be said. He’s just as cool as it gets.” A week after snapping a 31-year playoff victory drought, the Bengals (12-7) finally won their first road game in the postseason after losing their first seven. They reached the 1981 and 1988 Super Bowls by winning on their home field. The Bengals will play in the AFC championship game Jan. 30 at the winner of the Buffalo Bills-Kansas City Chiefs matchup Sunday in the other AFC divisional-round game. The Bengals intercepted Ryan Tannehill three times, setting up two of McPherson’s four field goals. Logan Wilson picked off Tannehill with 20 seconds left at the Bengals 47. Joe Burrow...

    The 25 most memorable fictional TV towns Things that have decimated womens retirement savings Tony Romo Predicts Next Years AFC Championship Game Will Include the Patriots As the Kansas City Chiefs celebrated their second straight trip to the Super Bowl, and as the Buffalo Bills sadly walked off the field, Tony Romo praised the losing team for their effort and season.

Sunday evening was a tough loss, but the future is bright for Bills mafia. © Provided by The Big Lead AFC Championship - New England Patriots v Kansas City Chiefs | Jamie Squire/Getty Images Then Romo had to throw some salt in the wounds of Buffalo loyalists by slipping in a prediction that the New England Patriots would find their way back to the AFC Championship Game next season.

    This might be the most open a Bills wide receiver was on Sunday. Stefon Diggs had a solid but relatively quiet performance in the AFC championship game vs. the Chiefs, grabbing six passes for 77 yards and no touchdowns. The result was an emotional final few minutes alongside quarterback Josh Allen on the sideline. Diggs, clearly shaken by Buffalo’s 38-24 loss, decided to take an opportunity to motivate himself for next season, apparently. MORE: Bills, Sean McDermott roasted for decision to kick Rather than head to the locker room to sulk following the L, Diggs stood on the field in Arrowhead Stadium, the only Bills player to do so, observing Kansas City’s celebration from afar. You can probably file this under Michael Jordan’s “and I took that personally.” Really, how much more motivation could the All-Pro wideout need? Diggs had 127 receptions, 1,535 yards and eight touchdowns alongside Allen in his first season in Buffalo. With Allen taking the next step in 2020, it will be worth watching how much better the duo can get.  Diggs earned first-team...

Other athletes remember brutal losses. © Provided by Touchdown Wire Perhaps that is what we saw from Stefon Diggs after the AFC Championship game. While the Kansas City Chiefs were celebrating on the field, and being awarded the Lamar Hunt trophy as the champions of the conference, a sole figure clad in Bills’ road whites was lingering away from the celebration. It was Diggs, the wide receiver, standing on the sidelines watching the victorious Chiefs celebrate as the confetti poured down from above and the fans in attendance soaked it all in.

It looked like the Bills were going to tack onto that three-point lead as they were on the move during their second possession, but a huge sack of Josh Allen pushed the Bills back deep into their own territory. They would fail to convert the third-and-long situation, and were forced to punt. That is when the Chiefs made a huge mistake. Returner Mecole Hardman failed to secure the ball, and the Bills were able to pounce on...

The great story of Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the second-half surge of the Buffalo Bills haven’t moved bettors too much. Bettors generally lean toward favorites and overs, and that’s the case for the two conference championship games. The Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers are getting a majority of the bets, according to BetMGM data analyst John Ewing. The overs are preferred by bettors too.

    The Buffalo Bills are in the AFC Championship game for the first time in 27 years after a gutsy 17-3 win over the Baltimore Ravens. In a fierce, bitter wind which made points tough to come by, Buffalo’s defence stymied Lamar Jackson, reducing the current MVP to 162 yards in the air and 34 on the ground. In front of 6,772 fans and with the score 3-3 at half-time, the game was effectively over in the third quarter, such was the Bills’ dominance and mastery of conditions.

His first postseason game as head coach — he missed the Wild Card game after testing positive for COVID — could have been an even bigger one, but the rookie coach just couldn’t get out of his own way at times. © Provided by For The Win Stefanski’s clock management in the fourth quarter was rightfully criticized. There was no sense of urgency. Timeouts weren’t valued. It was as if the Browns thought there’d be a fifth quarter. There wasn’t, of course. There wasn’t even another drive. Cleveland’s defense, which was provided no margin for error on that last drive, couldn’t stop *checks notes* Chad Henne and that was that. The Browns’ magical season was over.

    Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers. (Photo by David Eulitt/Getty Images) Look for any of these five teams to play in the 2020 AFC Championship game.So who will play for the Lamar Hunt Trophy this year out of the AFC? Last season saw the Kansas City Chiefs win their late founder’s namesake trophy for the first time. Kansas City had not been to a Super Bowl since 1969. Though the Tennessee Titans, of all teams, briefly gave them fits in the first half of 2019 AFC Championship game, Chiefs Kingdom prevailed en route to a Super Bowl 54 berth and a second Lombardi Trophy in franchise history. While the NFC is a bit more up in the air, the AFC does have a few more teams than we expect that could give the Chiefs a run for their money in-conference this year. Though the Chiefs could repeat as Super Bowl champions, the last time an organization was able to pull off back-to-back Lombardi Trophies was the 2003 and 2004 New England Patriots. Winning it all is so difficult. So what we’re...
