In Bengals news, Chiefs fans are bummed that Joe Burrow won't be healthy for the Week 17 match-up between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs. They're donating to his charity and wishing for a speedy recovery.
Say what you will about the Chiefs and their fanbase but this is a classy move and one that they didn't have to do. The two sides didn't really interact much until the Bengals beat the Chiefs in the AFC Championship game in the 2021 season to advance to the Super Bowl.
Then, in the 2022 regular season, the Bengals moved to 3-0 against the Chiefs in the Burrow era. Unfortunately, the Chiefs' first win during that time came in the AFC Championship game and they went on to win the Super Bowl.
The two sides were set to square off in Week 17 at Arrowhead Stadium but now Burrow obviously won't be the starter for that one. It lost its luster, that's for sure.
