The Cincinnati Bengals came to a snowy Orchard Park and imposed their will on a short-handed Buffalo team, emerging with a 27-10 victory and punching their ticket to the AFC Championship Game.
The Bengals jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, leading by at least two possessions for most of the game while holding Josh Allen to 25/42 passing for 264 yards and a touchdown. There was an interception.
Joe Burrow surgically operated a clean pocket that was a testament to the strong play of the Bengals’ revamped offensive line, while the Bills looked like they were just trying to hang on at times.
It was a rematch of the Week 17 game that was suspended and ultimately canceled due to Demer Hamlin’s heart attack, who has since miraculously recovered and was in attendance for the game.
The Bengals play the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium and an injured Patrick Mahomes in a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line.
