For the second straight season, the Cincinnati Bengals are back in the AFC Championship and playing the Kansas City Chiefs on the road with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.
Cincinnati looked close to unbeatable in their convincing win over the Buffalo Bills in the Divisional Round last weekend, but they'll have their hands full with the AFC's No. 1 seed. One of the biggest storylines for the Bengals this week is the health of their offensive line.
Head coach Zac Taylor provided early updates on Alex Cappa and Jonah Williams, both of whom have been dealing with injuries lately.

Taylor kept things pretty high-level, simply saying that the two are "improving every day" and that he'll "see where things end up."
Both Cappa and Williams were ruled out ahead of the Divisional Round, but thankfully Cincinnati's offensive line held up without them. Joe Burrow was only sacked once during the contest for a loss of two yards.
It's far too early in the week for Bengals fans to start getting worried about either Cappa or Williams playing, but "improving every day" definitely falls in the level of coach speak.
For now, Cincinnati is considered a slim 1-point road underdog per the NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
