    Not sure who I will cheer for I don't mind either team. Maybe Cincinnati but I believe Kansas stands a better chance of winning and would make a great Super Bowl if Philadelphia wins.

    I like both of these. Sentimentally I would go with the Bengals. But KC will likely prevail. Then hopefully this winner takes the Lombardi.

    Man you guys are confident in KC even with Mahomes injury?

    I'm so up in the air about it still, Burrow is poised but Buffalo played like garbage and KC is a far better team overall in my opinion but how mobile is Mahomes going to be? His mobility is such a huge part of his game

    If I wasn't betting and completely unbiased I'd root for Cincy all the way since they never won a Super Bowl but money talks so I'm still not sure where my money is going so I can't say who I'm rooting for just yet

    i stopped underestimating the Bengals a long time ago. for those keeping score at home, the last time they lost a football game was back in October. Joe Burrow has faced off against Patrick Mahomes three times. he has beaten him three times. he has a better supporting cast. he is healthier. he (and his team) just finished beating the living hell out of a trendy SB pick in their own house.

    for those picking KC, there's always a chance that the locomotive can stop before it gets to you. for me personally, the thought of becoming a pancake in my second life just doesn't appeal to me very much, thus i'm going to eliminate that risk altogether and take Cincy.

    with that said, if a gimpy Patrick Mahomes blows up his kryptonite on Sunday, he'll take another giant step toward the pantheon.

    and my homeboy Darin will be one happy camper.

    Cincinnati!!... My favorite town in the U.S.A.! Nothing better than a Reds or Bengals game! Great fans...Nothing better than watching the fans walking over the Ohio River bridge back to Covington, Kentucky after a Reds game! It's A family thing....I think it's like the Brooklyn Dodgers. A neighborhood love affair!...
    GO BENGALS!

    And to be clear I mean KC is a far better team than Buffalo

    KC's D is better than Cincy I believe, and Frank Clark along with Chris Jones will or should make Burrow more nervous than Buffalo did without Von Miller

    I still don't know what to do but @galaxy27 is a pretty level.headed guy so I am starting to lean towards taking Cincy

    I think the Bengals walk out of there with the victory, Mahomes isn't 100%, and the Bengals are a battle tested team that thrives on the biggest stages, and that Joe Burrow is cool as a cucumber. Also, the Bengals seem to have the Chiefs number.

    I'm going to stop making predictions. LOL. Should be a good one. I know Mahomes is hurt, but the NFL has ways to make guys feel no pain for game day That being said, Mahomes might be limited to the pocket. But I am on the record as saying he ca win from the pocket. But Cincinnati just beat Buffalo in Buffalo in the snow. I would prefer they win.

    i appreciate this my man, but not always. sometimes my head is rolling down the street lol

    for me it basically boils down to everything i pointed out up above, plus the fact that my jaw was on the ground the entire Bengals-Bills game. i just couldn't believe what they were doing to Buffalo and how well they executed. just gashed them for four quarters. their patchwork O-line was sensational. the defense BALLED OUT. they are peaking at the absolute perfect time.

    we both know that anything and everything is possible in the NFL, but if Cincinnati replicates last week's performance this coming Sunday -- and of course this is just my .02 -- but i think the Chiefs are dead in the water

    With all this concern about PM's injury and your above legitimate comments about JB is 3-0 vs. PM, and Cinn. defeat of Buff. I'm surprised the line hasn't moved more to Cinn. being the favorite, however slight. I will stay with KC.

    at one time they were. it opened KC -3 at my book, went to Cincy -2.5, now it's back to KC -1

    crazy movement

    How much $ does it take to move the spread 1 point either way? I seem to recall from way back it takes $100k or 1 million k to move the line.

    @darin I've talked to you before a few times about my experiences over the years with the Patriots and how when the dynasty (double dynasty, but who's counting) was being built, it was hard to see things from a real macro view. When Mahomes won that first SB the talk is about being part of a dynasty. This game tomorrow probably feels like a must win to people who want to see the Chiefs become a dynasty. I'm curious how you feel.

    It's because I don't like Mahomes.......A friend asked me years ago what I thought of Mahomes. I said, " I hate him." "Why?" my friend asked. "BECAUSE HE'S SO DAMN GOOD!"... HE MAKES IT LOOK TOO EASY."..... He's good. I hope he's at 100% for the game today after the injury last week.
    GO BENGALS

    I expect to be disappointed....

    and KC's D is balling out
