The Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals have a storied history of memorable matchups. The two AFC contenders faced off at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Unlike previous encounters, Joe Burrow was absent from Sunday’s game due to a season-ending injury.
The Chiefs emerged victorious against the Bengals on Sunday, securing the AFC West division title in the process. This marks the eighth consecutive AFC West division title for the Chiefs.
After the game, a touching moment unfolded on the field between Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow.
Kelce could be heard expressing, “(The injury) ripped our soul out, man.”
One can only hope for numerous Burrow vs. Chiefs matchups in the years ahead.
This NFL season has undeniably felt the absence of the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback. Despite the protective rules in place for quarterbacks, injuries have remained a significant aspect of this season, posing a seemingly insurmountable challenge. Kelce’s gesture was a classy move, acknowledging the toll injuries can take on a lengthy NFL career.
