With a 26-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12 now in the rearview mirror, the Kansas City Chiefs will quickly shift their focus to their Week 13 opponent: the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Bengals are quickly becoming a conference rival for the Chiefs after knocking Kansas City out of Super Bowl contention during the AFC title game earlier this year. That was in large part due to a poor second-half performance by quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who completed just 44% of his passes for 55 yards and 2 interceptions, including one in overtime, after the half.

Speaking to the media after the Week 12 win, Mahomes was asked if he would like to play Cincinnati in Week 13 and didn’t mince his words.

“I mean it’s not a good place. You beat us. I played horribly in the second half and we lost at home which could have sent us to the Super Bowl so for sure we’ll be ready next week,” Mahomes said on Nov. 27.

Mahomes also detailed what he learned from that post-season loss.

Twitter users reacted to Kansas City’s win over Los Angeles in week 12.

“Always play down to the opponent’s level on offense. Why? I’d like to know,” wrote one Twitter user.

“Good win. Better redzone offense next week,” wrote another user. “I need TDs against the Bengals and not field goals. Let’s get it next week! rematch time!”

“What should have been a blowout game for the Chiefs was just enough to win a game,” wrote another user.
