AFC Wild Card Playoff Open Thread: Steelers vs Bengals

Join us below as we wrap up our AFC Wild Card weekend!

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

In the first game of the 2016 playoffs, the Kansas City Chiefs traveled to take on the Houston Texans on the road, and it was just about as lop-sided as a game could be. Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer threw four interceptions (three in the first half), and the Chiefs won easily by a score of 30-0.

The Chiefs will travel to Denver to take on 1st seed Denver Broncos next week.

Up next in the AFC Wild Card weekend, the Cincinnati Bengals take on division rival Pittsburgh Steelers. They split their regular season match-ups this year 1-1, with Cincinnati winning the first game when they had Andy Dalton starting at quarterback, and Pittsburgh winning the second when A.J. McCarron had to come in for an injured Dalton.

Dalton is still sidelined with a broken finger, although he did have the cast removed this week in hopes of potentially being ready to go as early as next week, should the Bengals win tonight.

The winner tonight will face the New England Patriots on the road next week, and the loser goes home.

This is your Bengals vs Steelers Open Thread... Have fun!
