The Buffalo Bills host the Cincinnati Bengals at 3:00 p.m. EST on Sunday afternoon in a highly anticipated AFC Divisional Round playoff game.

Today’s edition of Buffalo Rumblinks offers up insights and analysis into Joe Burrow and Cincinnati’s potent passing game, and what the Bills will need to do to counteract those strengths.

Below, read what the Bills defensive backs will need to do to slow down Chase, analysis of Burrow’s game, why the Bengals have become prolific at scoring in the red zone, reasons for Bills fans to be concerned and reasons for Bills fans to be optimistic heading into this showdown, and more!

What to make of Josh Allen’s turnover problems

The Bills will have the services of safety Jordan Poyer for the Divisional Round showdown vs. the Bengals, while defensive tackles Jordan Phillips and DaQuan Jones are questionable for the game. On the other side, the Bengals are expected to be missing three starters on their offensive line: left tackle Jonah Williams, right guard Alex Cappa, and right tackle La’el Collins.
