In one of the earlier games on Sunday, we get to see two AFC teams that are on the outside looking in regarding their playoff rankings. The 4-5 Buffalo Bills head to Cincinnati to play the 3-5-1 Bengals as both teams try to make a playoff push. [embedit snippet=”jon-ads”]
Let us first look at the Buffalo Bills. They are entering this game with a record of 4-5 and are currently on a three-game losing streak. This losing streak has seen them get defeated by the Miami Dolphins, New England Patriots, and the Seattle Seahawks. The Bills do have a rough couple of games to wrap up the 2016 season as they have games against the Raiders and Raiders.
However, the Bills do have a few games that are very winnable, and if the Bills can win these games, then they could make a push towards the playoffs. However, there happens to be one problem that the Bills are facing as they are 0-3 against the Bengals in their last three meetings dating back to their Week 4 game in 2011.
On the other side, the Cincinnati Bengals are coming into this game with a record of 3-5-1. They are coming off a loss this past Monday to the New York Giants. In the last three games, the Bengals are 1-1-1 as they lost to the Giants, beat the Browns, and tied with the Redskins. However, unlike the Bills who probably won’t have a shot at winning the AFC East, the Bengals are in a much different boat.
They are only one and a half games behind the AFC North leaders Baltimore Ravens. So you can make the argument that this is a big game for the Bengals as they still have a shot at the AFC North.If you would like the information to either listen or watch the game, here it is:
