Pro Football Network: Raiders 27, Bengals 24
Ben Rolfe writes: "This line feels spot-on between the Bengals and Raiders. Cincinnati is at least a field goal better than Las Vegas, and then you have home-field advantage on top of that. The Bengals will also be largely rested after taking a somewhat measured approach in Week 18. Cincinnati is a talented team, but they are inexperienced in many areas of the roster. It’s a big home playoff game — the emotion of it could be too much. However, the Raiders are a tough team to judge every single week. We saw the run game get rolling against the Chargers, and if that side of their offense works, they will be tough for the Bengals. It feels like either the Raiders or Steelers will pull an upset, and if you had to pick, the smart money would be on the Raiders."

Pete Fiutak writes: "Really? You’re going to go against this Las Vegas team that keeps on fighting through the adversity to play with the ultimate Raider swagger? Yeah, and not just because Cincinnati rolled 32-13 when the two played in Week 11. The Bengal star power got a week off to get everyone as right as can be, and Las Vegas had the emotional Sunday night game – that extra time will matter just enough. It won’t be the wipeout of earlier in the season, and the Bengals will press way too much, but Joe Burrow will get his first NFL playoff win."
Bleacher Report: Raiders 26, Bengals 24
Maurice Moton writes: "Vegas fields the ninth-ranked pass defense, which will make it difficult for Burrow, Chase and Higgins on the back end. Coupled with solid coverage, edge-rushers Yannick Ngakoue and Maxx Crosby should be able to consistently collapse the pocket. Burrow has taken the most sacks (51) this season. Under constant duress, he'll make a couple of mistakes, allowing the Raiders to score off turnovers."

Gil Alcaraz IV writes: "Kudos to Las Vegas for making it this far, but the bus stops in Cincinnati. Another stellar outing from the duo of Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase allows the Bengals to pull away in the fourth quarter and book their trip to the next round of the playoffs."
