Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals are off to the AFC Championship Game after knocking off No. 1 seed Tennessee in the Divisional Round on Saturday afternoon.

The Bengals topped the Titans, 19-16, following a game-winning field goal as time expired by rookie Evan McPherson.

Following the game, Burrow revealed what McPherson told him prior to running onto the field for the game-winning kick.

"Looks like we're going to the AFC Championship Game," the Bengals kicker told his quarterback on Saturday.

That's pretty legendary. "I have a new favorite kicker," one fan admitted. "FINAL BOSS MOVES," another fan tweeted. "Evan McPherson is the Joe Burrow of kickers," one fan joked. "Kickers. Love it!!! Tweet of the damn year," one fan added.

The Bengals will face either the Kansas City Chiefs or the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship Game next weekend.
