The Cincinnati Bengals — and beloved quarterback Joe Burrow — may be facing off against the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship game on Sunday.

But, apparently before they were rivals, Burrow wasn't afraid to support the Chiefs, at least not when he was a kid.

Burrow's dad Jimmy — a former defensive back in the Canadian Football League and NFL, and now a retired coach — tweeted a photo of his son (as a child) donning a Chiefs helmet. The caption reads: "Joe use to like those shiny red chiefs helmets. Not anymore. Geaux Bengals."

We'll forgive Burrow because he looks so darn cute.

The Cincinnati Bengals are heading to the AFC Championship game for the first time in decades this weekend, facing off against the Kansas City Chiefs.

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.
