The Cincinnati Bengals are taking on the Kansas Chiefs on Sunday, which is a rematch of the 2021 AFC Championship.
Many players on both teams are excited about this matchup, but Bengals wideout Ja’Marr Chase seems to be extra excited.

In his two career games against the Chiefs, Chase has had great success against what has been a lackluster secondary.
His 17 catches, 320 yards, and four touchdowns are certainly impressive, although they have come when Chase was fully healthy.
How Will Chase’s Injury Affect His Play?
Chase hasn’t played since Week 7, in which he suffered a hip injury.
While he is slated to play against the Chiefs this weekend, one might wonder if Chase will play the full game, or if he will be limited to a snap count.
The Bengals could sure use Chase in this game for additional firepower against the Chiefs.
While the Chiefs lead the league in points per game with 29.6, they are also giving up 22.1 points on the defensive side of the ball.
When looking at how opposing receivers have fared against them, the Chiefs defense has allowed 12 different receivers to gain over 70 receiving yards, with seven of those receivers having over 100 yards.
If Chase plays to his full capacity, he should have a monster performance.
He has already posted three separate 100-yard performances on the year and is looking to replicate his past success against the Chiefs this week as well.
Regardless of how Chase performs, this will surely be a game for the record books.
