Two of the hottest teams will face off when the Cincinnati Bengals host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday from Paul Brown Stadium. Both of these teams are coming off of blowout wins.

The Chiefs come into this one on a 8 game winning streak after a rocky start to the season. Patrick Mahomes was 23 for 30 for 258 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions as the Chiefs dominated the Steelers from start to finish. 

The Chiefs offense has been on a roll under QB Pat Mahomes. This season he has 4,310 yards for 33 touchdowns to 13 interceptions. He has a QBR of 59.0. 

The Chiefs offense averages 396.1 yards a game which is 3rd in the league. They are scoring 28.1 points per game as they give up 362.2 yards and 20.4 points per game to their opponents. 

The Bengals enter this one after blowing out a depleted Ravens team. Burrow had a career performance in that one as he threw for 525 yards and 4 touchdowns with no interceptions. 

With a win here, Burrow and the Bengals can win the division. On offense this team seems to have it all. A versatile back in Mixon, talented receivers in Chase and Boyd and an all world passing threat in Burrow. This season he has 4,165 yards for 30 touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He has a QBR of 52.7. 

The Bengals offense averages 365.9 yards a game which is 12th in the league. They are scoring 27.3 points per game as they give up 344.9 yards and 21.6 points per game to their opponents. 

The Chiefs are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall and are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game. The Chiefs are also  5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS win. The Bengals are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game and are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Chiefs are the more seasoned team and will be happy to get the chance to stop the Bengals from clinching the division.
