The Kansas City Chiefs will extend their own NFL record when they host the AFC Championship Game for the fifth straight season on Sunday. The No. 1 seed Chiefs will take on the No. 3 Cincinnati Bengals on CBS and Paramount+, with Cincinnati aiming to mark the first time in league history that it has reached two consecutive Super Bowls without a top-two seed. The Bengals easily defeated the Bills in the divisional round while the Chiefs clinched a 7-point win over the Jaguars.
Kickoff is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.

Championship round NFL picks for Chiefs vs. Bengals
Before you tune in to Sunday’s Cincinnati vs. Kansas City game, you need to check out SportsLine’s advanced computer model NFL picks. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has fetched well over $7,000 for $100 players with top-tier NFL picks since its inception. The model enters the AFC and NFC Championship of the 2023 NFL Playoffs with an incredible 162-113 run of top-flight NFL picks dating back to the 2017 season. It’s also been on a 16-6 throw at NFL top picks since Week 7 of this season.
The model has ranked in the top 10 for NFL picks on NFLPickWatch for the past six years, beating more than 94% of CBS Sports football pick ’em players four times in that span. Whoever followed it is way up.
In Bengals vs. Chiefs, the model bets over (47). Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow have met three times before, and neither quarterback has disappointed in those encounters. The two combined for 14 touchdowns versus just three picks in those games, each with a 100+ passer rating. In addition, each of the games scored at least 50 total points, and one of them scored 65 combined points in a classic shootout.
The Chiefs and Bengals are packed with explosive playmakers, making it difficult to hit a single person. Each team is expected to have three different players with at least 50 scrimmage yards, while Mahomes and Burrow are expected to have over 250 passing yards apiece. Also, there should be no more points on the field in the kicking games since the two kickers have been a combined 8v8 field on the field goal attempts since week 18. Since the points come from multiple sources across the field, the model returns the Over (47), with a total projected score of 47.
