Burrow's entrance to Arrowhead oozed confidence and for good reason. The former No. 1 overall pick has played some of his best football as of late and has won his last five starts.
The Bengals have worked their way through the playoffs thanks to the composed play of their quarterback and strong defensive performances. Cincinnati knocked off the top-seeded Tennessee Titans in last week's divisional-round after beating the Las Vegas Raiders by a touchdown in the Wild Card.
In those two wins, Burrow has completed 73.2% of his passes for 592 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. He's made throws when it matters and done what it takes to win in both games.
This Sunday, Burrow and the Bengals will face their toughest test yet. On the road in Kansas City, Cincinnati will have to keep pace with the reigning AFC Champion Chiefs.
The two teams already met during the regular season in Week 17. Burrow was masterful in that matchup, completing 30-of-39 passes for 446 yards and four touchdowns on the way to a 34-31 Bengals' victory.
However, the Chiefs have surely made adjustments designed to slow down Cincinnati's quarterback and offense. Burrow will have stay composed in the biggest game of his young NFL career if the Bengals hope to come out on top and advance to the Super Bowl.
The AFC Championship Game between the Bengals and the Chiefs will kick off at 3 p.m. ET. The game will air on CBS.
