In last week’s Ravens game, Joe Burrow showed what he is capable of if given the protection by his offensive line. He passed for a career-high of 525 yards in that game and a combined 941 yards in the two games against the Ravens this season. The Bengals definitely have their franchise quarterback, and he has been surrounded with the weapons needed to get to the postseason. A win against the Chiefs would solidify the AFC North division title and a playoff berth. They will need to carry the momentum from last week into this game. Look for the Jungle to be rocking when the Chiefs step onto the field.

This will be one of the biggest games of week 17. It should be a shoot-out since so much is riding on this game for both teams. The Bengals offense will need to have a solid performance by using Joe Mixon to control the clock but not being afraid to test the waters downfield. If Burrow’s offensive line can protect him as well as they did last week, it will be tough for the Chiefs to stop the three-headed trio of Tee Higgins, Tyler Boyd, and Ja’Marr Chase. Higgins and Chase are both over 1000 yards in receiving this season, and Tyler Boyd is close behind in getting his yards. However, this will be very challenging for the Chief’s defense. The Chiefs defensive line of Chris Jones, Melvin Ingram, will pressure Burrow. If Joe Burrow gets a hot start, this could be a high-scoring game between top NFL quarterbacks.

The Chiefs have a high-powered offense that leads the NFL in third-down conversions. Their quarterback Patrick Mahomes is one the best quarterbacks in the league for extending plays. The Bengals defense will have their hands full trying to contain him in the pocket. The Bengals defensive line got better with DJ Reader coming off the COVID List and Khalid Kareem coming back from a concussion. This Bengals defense has been excellent at stopping the run game. The Chiefs main running back, Clyde Edwards-Helaire, is out but replaced by Derrick Gore, a very productive runner. The Good news is that Bengal’s talented linebacker Logan Wilson is back from injury and will help secure the middle of the field. Wilson has four interceptions this season and could be a difference-maker in this game. One of Mahone’s top weapons is University of Cincinnati grad Travis Kelce. Kelce is one of the premier tight ends in the league and can gain a lot of long yards. Containing Kelce should be on the defense’s list of must-do’s for this game. Then there is the very talented and quick receiver of
Tyreek Hill, who Mahomes relies on a lot. Everyone in the Bengal’s talented secondary is healthy so expect them to perform well while slowing Hill down.
The team with the fewer turnovers and the quarterback who has the ball in his hands last will win this game. The Bengals know what is at stake, so they will come out ready to play in this home game match-up.
