Bengals coach Zac Taylor dissatisfied with NFL playoff adjustments after cancellation of game against Bills
Cincinnati Bengals coach Zac Taylor is unhappy with adjustments made by the NFL for the playoffs after their game against the Buffalo Bills was canceled.
Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor has voiced his dissatisfaction with the decisions of the NFL regarding adjustments to be made in the playoffs.
This comes after the cancelation of last week’s Monday Night Football game when they faced the Buffalo Bills, during which Damar Hamlin collapsed and suffered a cardiac arrest on the field.
“As far as I’m concerned, we just want the rules to be followed,” said Taylor.
He was referencing existing rules regarding the win percentage that determines conference seeding, playoff matchups, and home venue for these games.
The NFL had earlier announced the official cancelation of the game and changes to the location of playoff games involving the Bengals and the Bills.
Changes have already been voted on by team owners
“These are missed opportunities for us. We were in control and now we're not. There are positives for many teams and negatives for us,” Taylor continued.
Cincinnati would lose the playoff game at home despite being named champions of the AFC North.
“What we have ahead of us is to win this weekend and recover the opportunity of a home game,” said the coach.
If the Baltimore Ravens beat the Bengals in Week 18 and then scheduled to play in the wild card round between them, the location will be determined by a coin toss.
