4. Week 13 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

This game has to make the list after the last two meetings the Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs had. The previous two matchups ended in game-winning field goals by the Cincinnati Bengals.

One was in Week 17, which was the game that won the division for Cincinnati, and the other one went into overtime in the AFC Championship. In both games, the Chiefs got out to red hot starts and pretty much dominated the Bengals’ defense in the first half. Although, the second-half adjustments that Cincinnati made are what led to both comeback wins.

This will be a revenge game for the Chiefs, but knowing how the last two meetings went makes it easy to anticipate that this game will be a shootout and down to the wire. Not to mention it will just be another matchup of Joe Burrow vs. Patrick Mahomes, who are both two of the best overall quarterbacks in the league.

Being later in the season, this game could also see a lot of playoff implications. Both the Chiefs and Bengals play in two of the toughest divisions in football, so come December and January, there won’t be much margin for error, and each loss could deem critical to the standings and rankings.
