The Cincinnati Bengals and the Buffalo Bills will take the field in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs. Back in Week 18, the two teams squared off on Monday Night Football and tragedy struck when Bills' safety Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest after making a tackle on Bengals WR Tee Higgins. The game was canceled due to his injury and now, the No. 2 Bills will host the No. 3 Bengals in a win-or-go-home game.

As the defending AFC Champions, the Bengals are trying to make it to their second-straight title game if they can defeat the Bills. During Wildcard Weekend, the Bengals made quick work of their AFC North rivals in Baltimore, winning 24-17. QB Joe Burrow completed 23 of 32 passes for 209 yards and a touchdown against Baltimore. Since Burrow's arrival, the Bengals' prolific offense with RB Joe Mixon, and WRs Ja'Marr Chase, Higgins, and Tyler Boyd have won 4 out of 5 playoff games with their only loss coming in Super Bowl LVI.

Like the Bengals, in the Wildcard Round, the Bills defeated a division rival in a thrilling contest against the Dolphins. Buffalo outlasted Miami, 34-31, in a close game that was the longest home game in Buffalo's history. After jumping out in front 17-0, the Bills allowed Miami's third-string QB Skylar Thompson to stay in the game. Allen threw 2 INTs, which is the most he's thrown in a single game in the playoffs and the most he's thrown in a single postseason. Last postseason, Allen didn't throw any picks and threw for 9 TDs, but he's regressed during the 2022 season, in which he's tied second for most INTs in the league. He'll have to turn it around against the Bengals' defense if he wants to lead the Bills to the AFC Championship Game.
