Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen throws a pass against Cincinnati Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Buffalo to take on the Bills at 3:00 p.m on Sunday after their tight victory at home versus the Baltimore Ravens last weekend. The Bills were able to escape in their Wild Card game against the Miami Dolphins with a score of 34-31 after being favored by two touchdowns.

The Bengals were able to score in all four quarters and hold Baltimore to two scoreless quarters in their win against the Ravens. Joe Burrow threw for one touchdown and used his feet for his second touchdown to lead the Bengals to victory. The most important play of the game came from the defensive side on a goal-line stand which resulted in a 98-yard fumble return by Sam Hubbard.

The Bills were held scoreless in the fourth quarter of their matchup with Miami in a game that was much closer than expected. Miami rookie quarterback Skylar Thompson threw the ball 45 times in the game but only completed 18 of them with one touchdown. The Dolphins ultimately couldn’t overcome the three-touchdown effort by Bills quarterback Josh Allen, which catapulted the Bills into the next round of the playoffs.

This will be a rematch of the matchup between the Bills and Bengals that was suspended due to the serious injury to Damar Hamlin. The game ended at a score of 7-3 Bengals in the first quarter. Let’s look ahead to this Divisional Round matchups between the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills.

Keys To The Game

The key for the Bengals will be Joe Burrow. They need Burrow to play well because the results of the Bengals’ games tend to reflect how Burrow is controlling the game. It will be a tough atmosphere to play in, but if these playoffs go anything like the last one, Joe Burrow will be poised and will make sure that this team has a chance to pull off in the end.

Both the Bills’ offense and defense has been stellar this season which led to 14 wins and only three losses. Even though Josh Allen and the offense will need to perform, it will be up to the defense to stop Joe Burrow and their offense to win this game. The Buffalo defense ranks second in opponent red zone touchdown scoring, third in opponent points per game, and fifth in opponent yards per game.
