There are many rivalries in the NFL, both within divisions and within conferences as a whole.

When Joe Burrows was named the starting quarterback for the Cincinnati Bengals, the entire city was rejuvenated.

Not only has Burrow given life to the Bengals, but he has also helped them develop an intense rivalry with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Burrows and Patrick Mahomes always seem to play in close, competitive games.

As the NFL’s schedule continues to be released, the league has treated fans this season with juicy matchups featuring both teams in New Year’s Eve games.

By the end of the season, Mahomes and the Chiefs had not defeated Burrows and the Bengals.

Despite the Chiefs having an impressive record against the rest of the conference, a win over Burrows eluded them.

Thankfully for Mahomes and the Chiefs fans, they were able to pull off the AFC Championship win that got them into the Super Bowl.

The rest is history, as the Chiefs were able to finish their job in the title game, bringing another Lombardi Trophy to Kansas City.

How will things unfold between the two teams this season?

Burrows and the Bengals continue to improve their roster to help them compete among the best in the AFC.

Following their Super Bowl victory, the Chiefs have added to their roster as well, ensuring they can maintain their spot at the top.

While the season hasn’t started for several months, fans can already mark this matchup on their calendars.
