The Kansas City Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals have a rivalry now. I mean, I guess that’s what you would call it when there is so much tension between the two, but it really isn’t a rivalry when the Chiefs haven’t beaten them.
Both teams don’t like each other. One of them, in the Bengals, will let you know they don’t like Kansas City, and the other will act like the team that has been there before.
The Bengals are a really good team, but I don’t think the Chiefs are nervous or worried about them despite the three losses. Kansas City has been here before, as we said earlier, three straight AFC Championship games to be exact.
But the Bengals insist on continuing to talk trash. They have the right to, considering they have won three straight. But, it does get quite annoying.
For the most part, the Chiefs players have handled it pretty well. They have remained professional. Most of them, that is.
“I think different guys use it in different ways,” Patrick Mahomes said of the trash talk on Thursday. ‘I just try to go out there and prepare myself to play my best football. If you’re not fired up to play a team that beats you three times in a row, [including] the AFC Championship game, then you’re not going to be fired up for any game.” I’m excited to go up against a great football team and try to do my best effort to go out there and get a win.”
The Chiefs need something to fire them, up and make them angry, but in a good way. These games have been so close, as each loss has been by three points.
They should take the trash talk personally, and be mad that they keep losing to a team that isn’t being humbled.
If I’m the Chiefs, I want to go and humble the Bengals. You know they want to, but we need to see it on Sunday.
We need to see Mahomes play with a different fire. They and the media are saying Burrow is better.
They are calling the Chiefs’ home stadium “Burrowhead.” There is no way you can feel okay with any of this.
I think this Sunday, we will see a completely different team.
