What can Chiefs learn from regular season matchup against Bengals?


Despite all the conversation around Patrick Mahomes' ankle dominating the week-long lead up to this weekend's AFC Championship game, there's still plenty of other matchups worth paying attention to. The game will be the second time these two teams have met this season – the first being a 34-31 Bengals win – as well as a rematch of last year's AFC Championship. So what can the Chiefs learn from that close loss in Cincinnati? 610's Chiefs Insider Pete Sweeney joined Fescoe In The Morning on Tuesday to give his take.

REID: Mahomes 'going to play' vs Cincy for AFC title

"Had Travis Kelce not fumbled the ball, the entire narrative, even between Mahomes and Burrow, would be a little different now if you had gotten that win," he said. "I think the margin is so small. Yes, you have the Bengals, and every play counts, and they've had the Chiefs' number. But you change a few things, it's a team that's beaten the Chiefs by a total of nine points in those three games. So I just look at this one and I think you feel a lot better about Kansas City if they're able to get some quarterback pressure early. And it's possible against this Bengals offensive line."
