As a result of their wire-to-wire victory over the Buffalo Bills in their AFC Divisional round game on Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals will head to Kansas City for a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship game this weekend.

Immediately following the Bengals’ 27-10 win over the Bills, Patrick Mahomes — who led the Chiefs to a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in the divisional round despite suffering a high ankle sprain — took to Twitter to send a simple message to the Bengals ahead of their upcoming rematch.

The message was simple but effective: an emoji of a clock.

Following the game, while speaking to CBS’ Tracy Wolfson, Burrow also had a message of his own, as he told the NFL to send out refunds to whoever bought tickets to the potential neutral-site-located AFC Championship game between the Chiefs and Bills:

In last year’s AFC Championship game, the Bengals edged past the Chiefs in overtime by a score of 27-24. Joe Burrow, playing in his first-ever AFC Championship game, completed 23 of 38 passes for 250 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. As for Mahomes, he completed 26 of 39 passes for 275 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions.

At the time of this writing, Las Vegas bookmakers are currently split on the potential outcome of the game as both teams’ odds are currently at an even Pick ‘Em.

Over in the NFC side of the NFL playoffs, the #2 seed San Francisco 49ers — who beat the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round — will head to Pennsylvania to take on the #1 seed Philadelphia Eagles (who stomped out the New York Giants last weekend) in the NFC Championship game.

Super Bowl LVII will be held on Sunday, February 12, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
