The Kansas City Chiefs are hosting the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium for the NFC Championship Game. These teams did meet in the regular season with the Bengals winning in Week 13, 27-24, so the Chiefs definitely have a good idea of what to expect of Joe Burrow and company. When it comes to facing the Bengals, JuJu Smith-Schuster is one Chiefs player with tremendous experience, having spent his first five seasons in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“I just think, honestly, they’re just a physical team. They just play physical from start to finish, all 4 quarters. That’s something I saw playing them in Cincinnati, & it felt like a playoff atmosphere game, and that’s kind of what I’m expecting to see here,” JuJu Smith-Schuster said about the Bengals ahead of Sunday’s game (h/t Steelers Depot).
