Can the Cincinnati Bengals make it to their first Super Bowl since 1989?

The Cincinnati Bengals are heading to the AFC Championship game for the first time in decades, and Bengals Nation is making plans to watch.

The Bengals will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the showdown. Kansas City was 12-5 during the regular season and lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in last year's Super Bowl. The Bengals were 10-7 for the season and haven't seen the big game since 1989 when the team lost to the San Francisco 49ers.

The AFC Championship will take place at 3:05 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 30, at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City. Fans can watch the game on CBS, Paramount + or NFL mobile options.

If the Bengals beat the Chiefs, Cincinnati will play either the San Francisco 49ers or the Los Angeles Rams during the Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 13.

To get to this point, the Bengals beat the Tennessee Titans 19-16 in the AFC Divisional round on Jan. 22 with a magical walk-off field goal from Evan McPherson that further enhanced this squad's legendary status. Before that, the team had a can-you-believe-it victory over the Las Vegas Raiders in the Wild Card round on Jan. 15.
