This matchup was supposed to occur in the regular season but ended up being canceled due to an injury to Damar Hamlin. The Bengals have played solid football down the stretch of the regular season, but this game will be no easy task. We have their final injury report, and they will be down some key members of their offensive line.

How the team’s injuries may affect the Bengals in Divisional round
Missing two offensive linemen is going to be hard to overcome for Cincinnati. Quarterback Joe Burrow has benefitted from a reinforced line this season, but he could be dealing with an uptick in pressure in the backfield without Williams and Cappa. Look for Buffalo to throw more blitzes at the Bengals’ line to see if they can throw off or disrupt Burrow.
