CBS NFL Expert Pete Prisco Picks for the Conference Championships
Cincinnati Bengals (+7) at Kansas City Chiefs
Sunday, 3 p.m. ET (CBS)
In a rematch from a few weeks ago, Pete Prisco notes how the Bengals found a way to limit Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce in the previous meeting while Ja’Marr Chase went off for them. However, he feels it is unlikely the same happens on Sunday.
The key to the game for Prisco is the Chiefs’ offensive line against the Bengals’ edge rushers. He believes both Patrick Mahomes and Joe Burrow will have strong days, but experience will win out. Prisco picks the Chiefs to win outright, but the Bengals will keep it close enough to cover.

In another rematch, Pete Prisco notes how Kyle Shanahan has had all of the answers for Sean McVay, winning six straight games against him. It took a comeback effort in Week 18 for the 49ers to win, and it was thanks to their blitz against the Rams offensive line.
He believes it will be more of the same on Sunday. Prisco does not believe the Rams will be able to pass protect against the 49ers, leading to San Francisco not only covering the spread, but also winning outright.
