This also means the game can be streamed online after CBS Sports announced that its coverage for the AFC playoffs will be streamed on CBSSports.com:
"The No. 6-seeded San Diego Chargers (9-7) visit the AFC North Champions and No. 3-seeded Cincinnati Bengals (11-5). THE NFL ON CBS’s coverage begins with THE NFL TODAY, the Network’s studio show (12:00 Noon-1:00 PM, ET), live from the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City. For the first time ever, CBS Sports will stream its coverage of the American Football Conference Playoffs on CBSSports.com. Streaming coverage includes the national broadcasts of the AFC Wild Card Playoff Game on Sunday, Jan. 5, the AFC Divisional Playoff Games on Saturday, Jan. 11 and Sunday, Jan. 12, and the AFC Championship Game on Sunday, Jan. 19. Live streams of CBS Sports’ AFC playoff games will be available to fans on laptops, desktops and tablets at CBSSports.com here."
A big thanks goes out to all the fans and corporate sponsors who made this happen. Now the Bengals’ only focus going into this weekend can be on the San Diego Chargers and getting the franchise’s first win in the NFL playoffs since 1991.
But that’s clearly not the only game the Bengals hope to win this postseason. Hopefully, it’s only the beginning of a long January that dips into the first week of February.
