Skip Bayless Declares What Sparked The Chiefs
On Sunday night, the Kansas City Chiefs got their revenge against the Cincinnati Bengals.
After losing the AFC Championship Game to them last season, they needed something special to help them overcome the Bengals.
While the team had one of the best offensive units last season, it wasn’t enough to stop the Bengals.
However, something gave them the spark they needed to win their AFC Championship rematch.
It didn’t take long for Skip Bayless to point out the spark nearly everyone else already knew about.
After the Chiefs won, Bayless tweeted out how the actions of the Bengals in Buffalo gave the Chiefs a spark to defeat them.
Mike Hilton calling Arrowhead “Burrowhead” as the game was ending in Buffalo was the emotional difference in this game. Kelce and Mahomes both brought it up on CBS – then Mahomes took a shot at the Bengals for lighting cigars after the win at Buffalo. Bengals asked for this.

Despite Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce coming into the game with injuries, they battled through the pain.
Fans saw how Mahomes was having issues with his ankle during a couple of plays, which was worrisome.
However, the Bengals lighting those cigars after they won against the Buffalo Bills gave Mahomes a reason to win this game.
He couldn’t allow the Bengals to insult his team and home stadium.
With him expressing this on CBS, it’s clear that the poking the Bengals did was too much.
Instead of them walking off with a fourth consecutive win against Mahomes, Burrow and his team now must go back to Cincinnati without the AFC Championship.
Their plan backfired and only fueled a fire inside of two of the best players Kansas City has today.
Despite the injuries before and during the game, the players had a spark to win, thanks to their opponents.
