The Cincinnati Bengals are AFC North champions.

It’s the first time the team can say that since 2015 and things have changed quite a bit since then.

Sunday, it was Joe Burrow’s 446 passing yards (a week removed from throwing for 525) and four scores fueling the Bengals over the AFC-leading Kansas City Chiefs.

Fifth-overall pick Ja’Marr Chase shattered all sorts of records in the process, literally playing uncoverable football on his way to 11 catches for 266 yards and three scores.

The Cincinnati defense did just enough to slow Patrick Mahomes and an elite offense, getting three critical third-down stops in the second half.

The win moves the Bengals to 10-6 on the season. They’ve won three in a row now and sit third in the playoff seeding as of this writing. They’ll finish the season in Cleveland next weekend, looking to make it four wins in a row before a playoff push.
