Joe Burrow looking forward to settling growing rivalry on the field

The Bengals have quickly become one of the best teams in the NFL. With bigger expectations come bigger games, and QB Joe Burrow already has one matchup circled in 2023. You probably won't be surprised by which matchup it is.

"The best thing about that is it's all settled on the field," Burrow said, via the NFL's Twitter account. "So, we'll see [the Chiefs] in December."

Bengals vs. Chiefs has grown into one of the league's best rivalries over the past couple of seasons after Burrow helped turn the franchise around, making back-to-back AFC title games and a Super Bowl appearance.

Cincinnati even stole Kansas City's four-time Pro Bowl left tackle, Orlando Brown Jr., this offseason in hopes of taking back the AFC.

The AFC has been owned by the Chiefs in recent seasons, as they are coming off their second Super Bowl victory in four years.

Burrow did start 3-0 against Mahomes to begin his career but even he knows Mahomes still reigns as the top quarterback in the NFL.

"I don't think there's any argument right now. It's Patrick [Mahomes] until someone has a better year than he's had. He's the one to knock off," Burrow said, via PFF.

He'll get another shot at Mahomes in Week 17 this season in a game that could be for the No. 1 seed. So, get your popcorn ready because their four previous meetings have all been decided by three points.
