Did Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes Predict the Bengals Trip to the AFC Championship?

Seems like Mahomes might be psychic.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes exchanged a few psychic words with Joe Burrow following the Bengals win against the Chiefs three weeks ago — a win that clinched Cincinnati the AFC North title. 

"See y'all in the playoffs," Mahomes said after the Jan. 2 game, while shaking hands with Burrow at midfield.

Kansas City beat the Buffalo Bills in an overtime thriller on Jan. 23,  and the Bengals took down the Tennessee Titans that same day. So now both teams are set to face off once again, this time in the AFC Championship. 

The regular-season game on Jan. 2 cemented the matchup as an offensive shootout between Mahomes and Burrow. Mahomes threw for 259 yards with two touchdowns, while Burrow produced 446 yards along with four touchdowns, according to ESPN

That game ended in what is now common fashion for the Bengals, with a buzzer-beating Evan McPherson field goal — the same seconds-to-go tactic that helped the team triumph over Tennessee this past Saturday.

Following a wild AFC Divisional Round, both teams have a week to recover and prepare for the AFC Championship game in Kansas City on Sunday, Jan. 30  at 3:05 p.m.

A win on Sunday would send the Cincinnati Bengals to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1989.  Who Dey!

Watch the game live on CBS or stream it via Paramount+ or the Yahoo Sports App.
