The Cincinnati Bengals aren’t apologizing for throwing a wrench in the NFL’s plan to play the AFC Championships Game at a neutral site in Atlanta, GA. The league most definitely wanted a clash between the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs to take place next week, but it was the Bengals who crashed the party.

Had the Bills won, the NFL would’ve cashed in on the neutral site game, which was decided via coin toss ahead of the postseason. However, the Bengals’ plans stayed the same throughout.

By downing Buffalo, the Bengals are set to march into Arrowhead Stadium with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Bengals head coach Zac Taylor was rather unapologetic for disrupting the NFL’s plans.

“We had our minds set to go play in Kansas City. It is tough because they have to formulate the plans for coin tosses and they gotta formulate the plans for neutral site plans, and we just keep screwing it up for everybody. I hate that for the people that have to endure all of those logistical issues and we just keep screwing it up, so I’m sorry,” Taylor said with a smirk.

Cincinnati has been controlling what they can control down the stretch. Taking it one game at a time, surviving and advancing their way through the AFC playoff bracket.

With a hobbled Patrick Mahomes on deck next week, the Bengals can continue to ruin teams’ plans around the league in order to keep their own Super bowl hopes alive.
