The Cincinnati Bengals are breaking out a good luck charm this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Cincinnati announced on Tuesday that they’ll be wearing orange against the Chiefs on Sunday afternoon.
So why is this good luck?

Well, the last time the Bengals wore orange was in week 17 last year when they beat the Chiefs 34-31 at Paul Brown Stadium (now Paycor Stadium).
That win in week 17 last year clinched the AFC North for Cincinnati.
The Bengals won’t necessarily need luck in this matchup. For whatever reason, Cincinnati has owned Kansas City over the last decade plus.
The Bengals beat the Chiefs 34-31 to win the AFC North thanks to Evan McPherson’s chip shot as time expired.

The Bengals have won six of their last seven matchups against the Chiefs, including the last time they met which was in the AFC Championship game last season.
Joe Burrow is 2-0 against Patrick Mahomes and he’ll look to keep that streak alive in a pivotal AFC showdown this weekend.
