Burrow’s Bengals Struck Allen’s Bills On A Snowy NY Evening
The Bengals, seeking a second straight Super Bowl berth, nailed their ticket to Kansas City last Sunday after handing the Bills a 27-10 defeat in the AFC divisional round. But, with the Bills ahead of them, a hostile crowd, and constant snowfall, the Bengals’ quarterback, Joe Burrow, was still not overshadowed.
Burrow picked up back-to-back TDs in the first half, pushing the Bengals out in front by 17-7 at halftime. The former NCAA champion received constant help from Joe Mixon, whose 1-yard touchdown run extended Cincinnati’s lead to 24-10 as the game entered the fourth quarter.
Cincinnati’s defense also contributed to the win by dominating Buffalo’s offense for long stretches of the game. The Bengals stunned Josh Allen for most of the game while holding Stefon Diggs to 35 yards on four catches.
