Cincinnati Bengals head coach and former Bearcats offensive coordinator Zac Taylor is looking to win the AFC championship on Sunday and clinch a second straight Super Bowl berth.

Following a dominant win over the Buffalo Bills, Cincinnati is set to take on the top seeded Kansas City Chiefs in the must-see AFC championship game on Sunday night at 6:30 PM on CBS.

After spending one season as the Bearcats offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach, Taylor joined the Los Angeles Rams staff in 2018 and was later hired as the Bengals head coach.

Taylor has helped transform Cincinnati into a legitimate championship contender after reaching the Super Bowl last year and repeating the same level of success this season.

In addition to Taylor, the Bearcats will be represented on championship weekend by Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce, plus Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce and safety Bryan Cook.

Bengals star quarterback Joe Burrow racked up 332 total yards and three touchdowns in a 27-24 win over the Chiefs in December to improve to 3-0 against the AFC’s perennial favorite.

Even though Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes is dealing with a high ankle sprain, the Chiefs are 1-point favorites with the over/under set at 47.5 points according to WynnBET.
