LARAMIE – Logan Wilson and the Bengals will not return to the Super Bowl.
The Casper native and former Wyoming linebacker finished with six tackles (five solo) during Cincinnati’s 23-20 crushing loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Sunday night at Arrowhead Stadium.
Wilson watched helplessly as defensive end Joseph Ossai was called for a late hit on Patrick Mahomes in the closing seconds, which helped set up Harrison Butker’s 45-yard field goal on the ensuing snap.
The Chiefs avenged last year’s loss to the Bengals in the AFC Championship.
Wilson finished the season with 123 tackles (83 solo), 2.5 sacks and one interception.
