The Bengals (10-7) will host the Raiders (10-7) in the NFL Wild Card round on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised by NBC. 

Cincinnati, which won the AFC North for the first time since 2015, is also making its first playoff appearance since it won the division title. The Bengals closed the season with a 5-3 record including a three-game winning streak against the Broncos, Ravens and Chiefs before their Week 18 loss against the Browns. 

Cincinnati’s offense was one of the best in the league this season, ranking seventh in scoring (27.1 points per game). Second-year quarterback Joe Burrow threw for the sixth-most passing yards (4,611) in the league along with 34 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, while rookie wideout Ja’Marr Chase had a terrific season with 1,455 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns.

Las Vegas is making its first playoff appearance since 2016, when it was then-known as the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders went 7-5 under coach Rich Bisaccia after former coach Jon Gruden was fired this season, closing the year with a four-game winning streak against the Browns, Broncos, Colts and Chargers. 

Las Vegas had three players named to the Pro Bowl this season: defensive end Maxx Crosby; linebacker Denzel Perryman; and punter AJ Cole. Perryman was tied for third in the league with 102 solo tackles and also had three pass deflections and two fumble recoveries. 

This will be the second meeting between the Bengals and the Raiders this season. Cincinnati won the first contest, 32-13, on Nov. 21 at Las Vegas.
