After the Bengals rallied to beat the Chiefs earlier this month at Paul Brown Stadium, quarterbacks Joe Burrow and Patrick Mahomes met briefly to exchange well wishes and express mutual respect.
Among reactions from the Bengals' official Twitter account Sunday night to finding out that the two teams will meet again in the AFC title game in Kansas City was video of the interaction between the two, in which Mahomes said "see y'all in the playoffs":
Mahomes threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns in Cincinnati's 34-31 Week 17 win. Burrow had 446 passing yards and four touchdowns in the game.
Arrowhead Stadium is hosting the AFC Championship Game for the fourth consecutive season. Chiefs tight end and former Cincinnati Bearcats standout Travis Kelce scored the game-winning touchdown in overtime Sunday night against the Bills to set up the Bengals-Chiefs rematch.
Jim Nantz and Tony Romo, who called the Bills-Chiefs game, will call the Bengals-Chiefs game next Sunday.
