How to watch Bills vs. Bengals divisional round game originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

It wasn’t a conventional win for either the Buffalo Bills or Cincinnati Bengals during last week’s wild card showdowns.

The Bills dodged a potential Miami Dolphins comeback by the skin of their teeth and the Bengals squeezed by the Baltimore Ravens with a defensive touchdown to clinch a tight victory.

Josh Allen and the Bills started by scoring 17 straight points to open the game, only to be humbled by the Dolphins’ near-comeback. But luckily, Allen’s touchdown throws to Cole Beasley and Gabe Davis in the third quarter helped secure the win.

On the other side of things, in the final quarter of the Bengals’ Sunday night showdown, defensive end Sam Hubbard retrieved a fumble from Tyler Huntley, which turned into a 98-yard, tie-breaking touchdown, ultimately giving the Bengals the 24-17 victory in the first round of the AFC playoffs. 

Now, it’s time for the final eight teams to battle it out for a spot to compete for the conference championship. The Bills will take on the Bengals for the first time since their Week 17 matchup, where Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest on the field, leading to the game's eventual cancellation.
