I feel like these two teams are connected in a way. And not one of rivalry.
During the Marvin Lewis era, no AFC team outside of the brutal North has shown such significance to the Bengals like the Chiefs. It started in 2003 when the Bengals were the team to knock the Chiefs off the track to perfection, after Chad Ochocinco (then Johnson) made the predictions saying such. And it continued to this past season 2009, where the Bengals clinched the AFC North after defeating the Chiefs 17-10.
And then yesterday, where the Bengals repaid the favor by beating the San Diego Chargers 34-20, giving the Chiefs the AFC West by knocking the Chargers completely out of playoff contention.
Congrats, Kansas City Chiefs. If there's ever a team that deserves the playoffs this year, it's you guys (well, you and Jacksonville, but I sadly doubt they join you in the postseason unless the Titans pull off some miracles...that's not counting them out surprisingly), the only team to break the stranglehold held by the dynasties of the divisions: Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, New England, and San Diego. It's safe to say most Bengals fans will be rooting for you in the postseason.
Congratulations, good luck, and you're welcome.

P.S. I read your "game threads" for it yesterday and was really thankful for the support but I saw a few of you referring to us by that moniker that the cruel media and dumb Steelers fans have given to us. While it may seem apt, none of us appreciate it. "Bungals/Bungles" is not a nice word (excuse me while I go wash my mouth out with soap).
P.P.S. Kansas Cincy. I like it.
