National reactions: Bengals vs. Bills causes big debates after playoff struggles


Buy Bengals Tickets

On its own, a game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills is nearly impossible to pick, a true 50-50 matchup.

But both teams struggling to wins in the wild card round only complicates things further.

Those Bills struggled to get past the Miami Dolphins starting a third-string quarterback. And the Bengals needed a record-breaking fumble return touchdown to slip past a Baltimore Ravens squad without Lamar Jackson.

So…just expected struggles in a third matchup with heated divisional rivals, or something more? And what does it mean for the divisional round showdown?

That’s been a big debate all week, so let’s take a sampling of what folks have to say on the matter before kickoff.
