The Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2022 AFC Championship Game. Talented young quarterbacks have had plenty of exposure in the 2022 NFL playoffs so far. The Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes outdueled the Bills' Josh Allen last week to send the Chiefs to the AFC Championship for the fourth year in a row. The Bengals' Joe Burrow overcame being sacked nine times to lead the Bengals to a 19-16 win over the Titans last week, earning Cincinnati it's first ever postseason road win in the process. You can see what happens in the NFL playoffs 2022 when you stream the game on Paramount+.

NFL picks for Chiefs vs. Bengals in the AFC Championship Game
Before turning into Sunday's Bengals vs. Chiefs game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,500 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters championship weekend of the 2021 NFL playoffs on an incredible 137-97 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn't missed a top-rated pick since Week 14 of the regular season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Bengals vs. Chiefs, the model's top pick is under 54.5 total points. The total has bounced around this week, opening at 53 before going to 54.5. These two offenses are loaded with playmaking ability, but the defenses have proven throughout the season that they're capable of surprising. Kansas City had the No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL from Week 6 on, while Cincinnati has held its two playoff opponents to 35 points total while forcing five turnovers.
While the model is expecting Burrow and Mahomes to combine for nearly 575 passing yards and four touchdowns, it's also predicting just enough defensive disruption for the under to hit. It's predicting Chiefs defensive end Chris Jones causes problems for a porous Cincinnati offensive line, with the Chiefs sacking Burrow multiple times and forcing multiple turnovers to help the under hit in nearly 60 percent of simulations.
