With heavy snow falling all day long at the Buffalo Bills' Highmark Stadium, it was the visiting Cincinnati Bengals who looked like the more comfortable team in the conditions.

Joe Burrow calmly carved through Buffalo's defense and led his Bengals to their second straight AFC championship game with a 27-10 win on Sunday in the divisional round.

In a battle of two of the game's best quarterbacks, Burrow and Buffalo's Josh Allen, only one offense was able to get off the ground. Allen and co. fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter and never really got back into the game.

The Bengals' win sets up a rematch of last year's AFC title game against the Kansas City Chiefs next week at Arrowhead Stadium. Had the Bills won, they would have faced the Chiefs at a neutral site in Atlanta due to a previous Bills-Bengals game ruled a no-contest. But Cincinnati made sure that option was off the table.
