first victory in 31 years for the Cincinnati Bengals in the play-offs

Cincinnati put an end to a long crossing of the desert by dominating Las Vegas (26-19).

The Cincinnati Bengals won their first American Football League (NFL) playoff game in 31 years by beating the Las Vegas Raiders 26-19 on Saturday.

Quarterback Joe Burrow threw two touchdowns, mirroring the effective offense of the Bengals who scored on their first four offensive possessions.

Cincinnati ended an eight-game losing streak in the playoffs, its previous success dating back to January 1991 against the Houston Oilers.

The Ohio franchise will face either Patrick Mahomes’ Kansas City Chiefs or the Buffalo Bills in the next round in a week.

In the other game of the day, Buffalo outclassed the New England Patriots 47-17 with a solid performance from quarterback Josh Allen who offered five touchdowns.

The Bills scored on their first seven possessions, a first in an NFL playoff game in the Super Bowl era.

The 30-point loss is the Patriots’ biggest in a playoff game since Bill Belichick took over as coach in 2000.
