The Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs will once again meet in the AFC Championship this weekend.
The matchup looks to be one of two high-flying offenses that have gotten great performances by their defense during the postseason. Joe Burrow versus Patrick Mahomes is always a matchup to get excited for if you’re a football fan.
Before the matchup, the Bengals are making an intriguing move.
Cincinnati claimed CB/core special teamer Chris Lammons off of waivers from the Chiefs.
That means he won’t be suiting up for Kansas City this weekend.
The Bengals claiming Lammons doesn't mean he can join them for Sunday — that can't happen until after the Super Bowl. However, it does prevent the Chiefs from re-adding Lammons to their practice squad. He's Kansas City's leader in special-teams snaps, at 322. https://t.co/0KpUfimPGf— Pete Sweeney (@pgsween) January 24, 2023
Accordingly, Lammons won’t play for the Bengals either.
By NFL rule, he actually can’t even communicate with the team. Cincy didn’t expect him to, though. It seems like they just wanted to be a thorn in the side of KC.
Basically, they just took away one of the Chiefs’ best special teams players. That could become important if the Bengals get a big kickoff or punt return.
The Bengals are taking every opportunity to get a competitive advantage over the Chiefs to secure a spot in the Super Bowl. You gotta love it if you’re a fan of Cincy.
