The NFL Week 10 will end with a bang as two of the best teams in the AFC will face each other on Sunday night. The Cincinnati Bengals (6-3) will host the Buffalo Bills (7-2) in a game that could have implications for the playoff seeding and the conference title.
The Bengals are coming off a thrilling overtime win against the San Francisco 49ers, where quarterback Joe Burrow threw for 348 yards and two touchdowns with only four incompletions. Burrow has been on fire this season, leading the league in passing yards (3,112) and touchdowns (25). He has also formed a lethal connection with rookie wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, who has 835 yards and eight touchdowns.
The Bills are also riding high after a dominant win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, where quarterback Josh Allen had 314 yards and three touchdowns. Allen has been one of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the league, with 2,587 passing yards and 19 touchdowns, and 343 rushing yards and four touchdowns. He has a talented group of receivers, led by Stefon Diggs, who has 717 yards and five touchdowns.
Both teams have strong defenses that can make life difficult for the opposing quarterbacks. The Bengals rank fourth in the league in sacks (28) and interceptions (13), while the Bills rank second in both categories (31 and 14). Both teams also have playmakers in the secondary, such as Jessie Bates III for the Bengals and Tre’Davious White for the Bills.
The game will be a test of wills and skills for both teams, as they look to prove themselves as the best in the AFC. The Bengals have not beaten the Bills since 2013, and have lost the last three meetings. The Bills have won four of their last five games, and have a one-game lead over the New England Patriots in the AFC East.
Who will come out on top in this potential AFC Championship Game preview? NFL legend Michael Irvin has made his pick, and he is leaning towards the Bengals. “I think both teams are going to show up and play hard,” Irvin said on Friday’s edition of “Undisputed.” “… When it comes to big games and these situations, I lean a little bit towards Joe Burrow. I know Josh Allen is going to give all he has and is going to play hard.” Irvin predicted that the Bengals will win the game, 31-24, and that Chase will have a big day.
The game will kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday and will be broadcast on NBC. It will be a must-watch game for any NFL fan, as two of the best young quarterbacks in the league will go head-to-head in a high-stakes showdown. The Bengals will give a tough fight to the opponent as it recently signed popular linebacker Logan Wilson.
