Burroughs responded with 525 passing yards as his team scored a huge victory over their rivals in the North Section of the American Association.

He will be able to put on an equally impressive performance on Sunday when the Bengals hosted the Western American Champions Kansas City chiefs and star quarterback Patrick Mahom.

“I think the opponent is someone we’ll be excited to play for,” Burrow said, refusing to minimize the clash between the two quarterbacks.

“It simply came to our notice then. We have a chance to win and earn a place in the playoffs. ”

The Bengals (9-6) can clinch the title in their respective divisions by defeating the Chiefs (11-4) on Sunday. They relieve themselves of a big burden for their final game of the season against the Cleveland Browns, and also offer their coach Jack Taylor a rare opportunity to give Barrow and the other stars a week off. The team is preparing for the first knockout round. Next week.

But beating the chiefs is the hardest thing to do in football right now.

After a phenomenal start to the season, leaving the team with a losing record of seven games played, Mahoms and his gang changed the tide in an amazing way. They have won eight in a row, most recently 36-10 in the sixth consecutive division title in last week’s match against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Chiefs also recovered from the spread of COVID-19 and returned to maximum form.

“No matter how you look at it, it’s an important game,” Taylor said. We want to stay at the top of the category and go to the playoffs. Chiefs are the enemy that separates us from this goal. They are an excellent team and they have had a lot of success over the last few seasons.

“We understand that, but we don’t think much of it. We like to do our work.”

However it is not only in Bengal, where the shares are high.

No. in American Standings. Chiefs start a game earlier in the weekend than the Tennessee Titans in race 1. This position is the pass to the first playoff game and the home field utility during the playoffs.

“The work is not done,” Mahoms said. We need first place. ”

And about his confrontation with Burroughs on Sunday:

“He’s not only a great football player, he’s also a great point guard,” Mahoms said. He can lead anyone wherever he is. He was still confident.

“But we’re going to win anyway. It takes a lot of experience for this to happen and it should be done for people who believe in it. ”

The Chiefs-Browns duel will take place Sunday at 1 p.m. at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

Burroughs must complete 38 passes by the end of the season to break the Bengal team record. Carson Palmer scored 373 in 2007.
