How are the underdog Cincinnati Bengals going to beat the Chiefs?
Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs will host the red-hot Cincinnati Bengals with Joe Burrow for the AFC Championship Game this coming weekend.
Cincinnati’s defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo has laid out his plan to beat the Chiefs.
Sounds simple enough. Lou Anarumo shared his plan to beat Kansas City via Bengals.com:
“We cannot allow touchdowns. We’ve got to make them kick field goals.
You want to do a great job in limiting yards, but at the end of the day, limit the points, win the game. How do you do that? You do that by playing great red-zone defense, taking possessions away from them on takeaways. We have to do that this weekend to give us a chance to be successful.”
Lou Anarumo went on to discuss how he feels he knows the Chiefs pretty well.
“You get a chance to have a feel for, ‘Hey, this is what these guys are really all about,’ as opposed to a team you don’t play once every four years or so. So we have that going. I think that’s the biggest thing. They know us, we know them, and then see what worked, what didn’t work in the first game and kind of, have some change up as we go into it.”

“I just think the guys are enjoying every minute of it as they should, this doesn’t happen all the time. I just think every day they’re enjoying each other. I mentioned something to them at halftime the other day. We’re a family and families aren’t perfect, and you’re going to get into arguments and there’s no family that doesn’t do that. Especially when you’re within the same four walls for basically seven months.
“Our guys have just handled all of this so well. I’m proud of them and they’re enjoying it and they should, and we get our work done and it’s a great environment. They look forward to coming to work every day. Zac (Taylor)’s done a great job of building that. We just want to keep going and keep continuing to play another day. That’s the goal.”
Even the most careful planning doesn’t necessarily mean a positive outcome.
We’ll have to wait and see how the Bengals D fares against the Chiefs high powered offense.
This is why we play the game.
