His name is Joe Burrow, but you can call him, "Him."

The Cincinnati Bengals quarterback declared who he is after throwing a 15-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Hayden Hurst to put the Bengals up 14-0 over the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round matchup on Sunday. 

When cornerback Mike Hilton went to give Burrow a high five, he emphatically said, "I'm him." Although Burrow's memory failed him postgame.

"Did I say that?," Burrow said. "Sometimes you blackout out there, I guess."

Burrow completed 23-of-36 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Bengals past the divisional round and to the AFC Championship for the second-straight year.

The Bengals defeated Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs 27-24 in the AFC Championship to advance to last year’s Super Bowl, which they lost to the Los Angeles Rams. The Chiefs are lining up for their fifth straight AFC Championship following a 27-20 victory over Jacksonville on Saturday.

Cincinnati has won the past three meetings against Kansas City, including another 27-24 victory on Dec. 4. They look to make it four at 6:30 p.m. EST on S
