Laps Keys To Bengals Victory | AFC Divisional Playoffs Buffalo Bills
#bengals #nflplayoffs #davelapham
The next round of the AFC playoffs takes the Cincinnati Bengals to Buffalo to battle the Bills, with the winner heading to the AFC Championship Game next weekend.
The Bengals are looking for their tenth straight victory of the season. While the NFL decided to go ahead and sell tickets for a Bills vs. Chiefs Championship Game, the Bengals know the first order of business is stopping Bills quarterback Josh Allen and protecting Joe Burrow with their revamped offensive line missing three starters.
This match-up was to happen at the beginning of the month, with the Bengals jumping to a quick score and their defense holding Allen and the Bills' offense to a field goal. The second drive went as well as the first before play was stopped, with Damar Hamlin suffering cardiac arrest and shocking both teams to the core.
While nothing from the first meeting was counted, this time, the game has a significant reward as the winner will take on the winner of the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. the Kansas City Chiefs match-up in the AFC Championship Game.
This week on In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, we've had some great guests leading up to the game. So be sure to check out any you might have missed.
