NFL: Bengals dominate bills in Buffalo | RDS

The Cincinnati Bengals accomplished the difficult task of dominating the Bills at home with a 27-10 win.

Thus, they receive the last available ticket to the American Association Finals, which will pit them against Pat Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. The Bengals beat the Chiefs 27-24 last year to earn their Super Bowl ticket. They then lost to the Los Angeles Rams.

Burrow scored his fifth win in six playoff starts. He completed 23 of 36 passes for 242 yards and two touchdowns.

Ja’Marr Chase and Hayden Hurst were Allen’s touchdown targets, and Joe Mixon finished the job with a middle finger.

Josh Allen scored the only touchdown for the Bills, who were anemic in every aspect of the game. The Buffalo quarterback completed 25 of 42 passes for 265 yards. He became the victim of an interception.

Joe Burrow and the Bengals never slowed down after a great start to the game when they scored two unanswered touchdowns in the first quarter.

From Cincinnati’s first offensive series, Joe Burrow showed that he was ready for this long-awaited duel. He ignored the pressure in his pocket before passing his accomplice Ja’Marr Chase 28 yards. The latter ended the game by sneaking into the end zone and scoring the first points of the game. Evan McPherson executed his conversion to give the Bengals a 7-0 lead.

The Cincinnati continued to gain momentum in the second series of attacks. Burrow fooled everyone this time with a pass to Hayden Hurst, who was left all alone in the end zone by the Bills defense. With their second major in the first quarter, the Bengals doubled their lead to 14-0.

However, Billy was held back by the Bengals’ momentum in the second quarter. After a long streak, Josh Allen used his feet in one yard to score a touchdown to cut the lead to 14-7.

The Bengals tried to increase their lead before halftime when Joe Burrow spotted Ja’Marr Chase in the end zone. However, on video replay, the decision was overturned and the touchdown was not allowed because Chase did not have full control of the ball. Evan McPherson ended the streak with a field goal to give his team a ten-point lead.

Cincinnati was not let down by the fact that Chase was denied a touchdown, far from it. Late in the third quarter, Joe Mixon, in turn, reached the end zone on a one-yard run, extending the Bengals’ lead to 24–10.

Early in the 4th quarter, Evan McPherson hit a 20-yard field goal to extend Cincinnati’s lead to 27–10.

Thus, the Bills playoffs end in the second round for the second consecutive season. Last year, they lost to the Chiefs in overtime, 42–36.

The inspiring presence of Damar Hamlin watching the game from the box was not enough to spark the Bills’ side.
