Winners of the AFC North for the first time since 2015, the Bengals have a lot of talent on the roster, and that includes second-year QB Joe Burrow. Burrow has been exceptional in his last four games, where he went interception-free and racked up 11 touchdowns. He runs an efficient offense that ranks seventh in the league for points per game, relying heavily on RB Joe Mixon for ground TDs and WR Ja’Marr Chase for receptions.
After a string of five losses in six games mid-season, Vegas clicked into gear and earned four straight wins to close out the season. With their playoff hopes riding on the final game of the season, the Raiders pushed forward for a 35-32 overtime win against the LA Chargers that required a 47-yard field goal kicked by Daniel Carlson. The Raiders will hope for a better outcome against the Bengals than their Week 11 matchup, which saw the Bengals win 32-13.
