Sunday night’s AFC Championship matchup was the biggest, most consequential games in recent Kansas City Chiefs history. In it, they faced their own boogeyman: a Cincinnati Bengals team that had ended their 2021 season with a overtime defeat that was just one part of a bitter three-game losing streak.
Coming into this one, we all felt an elevated sense of anxiety. It was not only because it was a tough matchup against a very good team, but also because we were worried about Kansas City’s hobbled quarterback. Then as the game went on, more injuries piled up.
