Bills vs Bengals – the third game of the divisional round in the 2023 NFL playoffs – promises to be quite the encounter. In fact, if you’re looking for star quarterback action, it could be the game of the tournament as the Bengals’ Joe Burrow faces his counterpart, the Bills’ Josh Allen. The two teams were supposed to face off 20 days early, but that game was unfortunately cut short after the Bills’ Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest.

This game was eagerly awaited since the two teams’ previous game was canceled due to tragic circumstances. Joe Burrow and Josh Allen are two of the best quarterbacks in the league, and whoever performs best could decide the outcome of this game.
Both the Bills (12-3) and Bengals (13-4) secured hard-fought victories against division rivals during last weekend’s wild card round – the Bills squeaked past the Dolphins by just three points (after squandering their early 14-point lead) , as the Bengals defeated the Ravens by seven (greatly aided by a fourth-quarter fumble). Both teams hope to prove themselves as title contenders.
According to the sportsbooks, the Bills are the favorite to win. But whatever happens, it’s sure to be an emotional match considering what happened during their previous meeting. Damar Hamlin might even attend.
