The Cincinnati Bengals have advanced to the playoffs for the third straight season after winning the AFC North. The Bengals will be playing in the playoffs as the #3 seed in the AFC. That means that they must play in the Wild Card round of the playoffs against the San Diego Chargers.
The Cincinnati v. San Diego game is slated for a 1:05pm ET kick off next Sunday on CBS. This will be the second AFC playoff game of the weekend, the winner of this game must travel to New England to face the #2 seeded Patriots in the Divisional round.
Cincinnati and San Diego met in week 13 of the NFL season when the Bengals traveled to San Diego to face the Chargers. Cincinnati emerged from that game victorious 17-10 behind great defensive play, much like last Sunday. The Bengals closed the season winners of 5 of their last 6 and undefeated at Paul Brown Stadium. Sundays game will be played in PBS, a stadium that has proved to be hostile this season. San Diego comes into the game winners of 5 of their last 6 as well, their only loss over that time period was to the Bengals.
There are still some 10,000 tickets left to this Wild Card round this Sunday. If you are in Cincinnati and dont mind be a little chilly hit up Stubhub or the Bengals ticket office and grab a ticket. Remember you could witness the first Bengals playoff win in over 20 years.
