NFL playoffs: Chiefs to host Bengals in AFC Championship, date and time announced

On Saturday, the Kansas City Chiefs cruised to a 27-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars to clinch their fifth consecutive AFC Championship appearance.

Then, in a snowstorm in Western New York on Sunday afternoon, the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Buffalo Bills 27-10 to earn their second straight appearance in the conference title game.

So now we know that the Chiefs and Bengals will play for the Lamar Hunt Trophy on the GEHA field at Arrowhead Stadium this Sunday, January 29. Kickoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Arrowhead time. The game will air on CBS — locally on KCTV/5.

The two teams last met in Week 13 in early December. In this game, the Bengals took a 27-24 home win. A year ago, the two teams met at Arrowhead in the 2021 AFC Championship. The Bengals won that game 27-24 in overtime – a month after beating the Chiefs at Cincinnati 34-31.

Kansas City now becomes the third team in league history to play in at least five straight conference title games — and the only franchise to host all five.
