Joe Burrow and the Bengals defeated the Buffalo Bills 27-10 to advance to their second-straight AFC Championship game where they will take on the Kansas City Chiefs. There would have been a scenario where if Buffalo defeated Cincinnati that the AFC Championship would be held at a neutral site location in Atlanta. Burrow was asked by Tracy Wolfson after the game on how everyone was talking about a neutral site AFC championship game.
Burrow on Everyone Talking About a Neutral AFC Championship Game:
Joe Burrow was asked about the NFL's plans for a neutral site AFC Championship game, and the tickets that were pre-purchase.
“Better send them refunds”

Those that purchased tickets for a potential Kansas City vs. Buffalo game will be have be refunded as Cincinnati was able to prove all of the doubters wrong again as they cruise passed the Bills in the snow. Burrow led the Bengals down the field on their first offensive possession of the night and from there Cincinnati wouldn’t look back as they dominated from start to finish.
The quote shouldn’t come as a shocker as Burrow has shown his swagger since his collegiate days at LSU, especially during the Tigers run to the national championship. The former LSU product threw for 242 yards and two touchdowns in Cincinnati’s 27-10 in the AFC Divisional round on Saturday afternoon. He would also add 31 rushing yards on six carries.
What’s Next For Cincinnati:
Cincinnati with the win has punched their ticket to a second straight appearance in the AFC Championship. It will be a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship game where the Bengals were able to take down the Chiefs, 27-24 in overtime. The Bengals will look to continue their recent success against Kansas City as the two teams met earlier in the regular season as Cincinnati took down the Chiefs, 27-24, on the first week of December.
With a win next week, the Bengals can punch their ticket to the Super Bowl and have a chance to finish some unfinished business from last year’s Super Bowl run where they ended up losing to the Los Angeles Rams. The kickoff for next week’s game will be on Sunday night at 5:30 p.m. CT on CBS.
