Burrow had a career day to all but kill off the Ravens, throwing for 525 yards and four touchdowns to rack up 41 points - and the Chiefs pass defense has been almost as bad as Baltimore's this season.
But you know who else can't stop the ball in the air? The Bengals D, and boy do they have their work cut out against late-season Patrick Mahomes.
The Chiefs currently hold the AFC's No.1 seed, but with the Titans still in a position where they can snatch it, Andy Reid's men will be doing everything in their power to take the win and wrap up that first-round bye.
This may well turn out to be a preview for the AFC Championship game, so follow our guide on how to watch the Chiefs vs Bengals online and get an NFL live stream wherever you are in the world right now.
