Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs


Clark catches Burrow

Frank Clark put an end to the Bengals’ opening drive when he dropped Joe Burrow for a 10-yard loss on third down, forcing Cincinnati to punt the ball. 

Injury updates

Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce is reportedly dealing with a back issue and has been receiving treatment since Friday’s practice, per FOX Sports’ Peter Schrager. Kelce is set to play against the Bengals but likely won’t be 100%, per reports. K.C. activated third-string tight end Jody Fortson, who wasn’t played since Dec. 2022, from injured reserve Saturday.

Mahomes, who suffered a high ankle sprain in last week’s divisional-round win, will be active Sunday.

Setting the stage

The Bengals punched their ticket to the AFC title game after cruising to a double-digit victory over Buffalo in the divisional round.

On the other side, the Chiefs advanced after edging Jacksonville last week to lock down an NFL record fifth straight conference championship game at home.

Emotional anthem

Chiefs star defensive tackle Chris Jones teared up during the national anthem.
