Six initial thoughts ahead of the Championship on Sunday

Burrow bought time when needed and continually found holes in Bills’ coverage. If that’s how he’s performed with a collection of reserves blocking him, it’s hard to see the Chiefs’ front causing him any problems. The Bills, for their part, have a better defense than Kansas City, placing sixth in the regular season, while the Chiefs finished 11th. Burrow has never lost to the Chiefs and he led Cincinnati to a win over Kansas City in the AFC Championship game last season. The Bengals offensive line was supposed to be a huge problem in that contest, as Cincinnati allowed the third-most sacks in the league in 2021 — but Burrow found a way to win that game while facing constant duress. Of course, the pressure became an issue in Super Bowl LVI, when the Rams fired Burrow seven times. But this Sunday, there’s a good chance that Burrow will discover Kansas City again, after the way the Bengals got through the Bills.
