Six initial thoughts heading into Championship Sunday

Burrow bought time when he had to and continually found holes in the Bills’ coverage. If this was how he performed with a collection of reserves blocking for him, it’s hard to see the Chiefs’ front causing him problems. The Bills, for one, have a better defense than Kansas City, ranking sixth in the regular season, while the Chiefs finished 11th. Burrow also has never lost to the Chiefs, and he led Cincinnati to a win over Kansas City in last season’s AFC Championship Game. 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 when he was dealing with constant harshness. Of course, pressure became a problem in Super Bowl LVI, when the Rams sacked Burrow seven times. But this Sunday, there’s a good chance Burrow figures out Kansas City again, after the way the Bengals ran through the Bills.
