The NFL playoffs have arrived and we've got the Cincinnati Bengals vs the Las Vegas Raiders. Here we give you all you need to know plus how to watch.

The Raiders have had quite a few off the field issues this season, while the Bengals clinched their first title in a while. Whatever way you cut it, the NFL playoffs have arrived.

The Raiders keep on going

After a dramatic late win against the Los Angeles Chargers during Sunday Night Football, the Raiders had to wait for a last gasp field goal, in order to emerge victorious in what was an exciting 35-32 victory over the Chargers. With that, it now seems that QB Derek Carr is set to make his first start in a playoff game. “I just have this weird feeling in my heart like the job is not done, like my favorite player Kobe [Bryant] said, ‘Job is not done.’ It does feel good, it’s exciting, but I don’t set out to just make the playoffs, although it’s been since 2016 and I didn’t even get to play. It feels cool.”

A long time coming for the Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals are in the middle of a great moment. Quarterback Joe Burrow has been at the forefront of a group of young players who have taken their division by storm. Along with the likes of Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins, the Bengals claimed AFC North title for the first time since 2015 with a Week 17 win against the Kansas City Chiefs no less. With that in mind, there are some players who have been given a rest as such one can expect the Bengals to be ready to go. Add to that the fact that they already got the better of the Raiders back in Week 11 with a 32-13 win and can forgive the air of confidence that Cincinnati is currently showing.
