The Cincinnati Bengals (6-5) head to San Diego for a west-coast rip to take on the Chargers (4-7) who are looking to spoil the Bengals’ playoff hopes. San Diego is coming off of a heart-breaking 16-13 loss in overtime to the Baltimore Ravens. They’re essentially out of the playoff picture.
After the Bengals scored their third straight victory last week over the Oakland Raiders, they now find themselves in 7th-place in the AFC standings, despite having the same record as the Pittsburgh Steelers who currently hold the final wild card spot. With the Steelers facing the Ravens without Big Ben, Cincinnati could find themselves 6th in the AFC and holding the final wild card spot by day’s end.
