On Sunday, the Bengals secured their spot in the AFC Championship Game after beating the Buffalo Bills 27-10.
This is their second year in a row making it to the AFC Championship Game.
Before their appearance in 2021, the Bengals hadn’t been in the championship game since 1988 when they lost to the San Fransisco 49ers. The Bengals have never won a Super Bowl title.
