The Cincinnati Bengals will face off against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday afternoon with the two sides having hugely varied seasons until now. The Bengals have impressed and sit perfectly poised for a drive to claim a playoff spot, where as the Chargers have been overwhelmingly disappointing and are all but finished with their season. The game is scheduled to start at 4.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream via the link below.
The Bengals are joint second in the AFC North with a 6-5 record. They have managed to turn things around recently with three straight wins. Although they have not only been wins but have been massacres – winning by an average of more than 21 points per game. The team seems revived and in the perfect mood to make a final big push to claim a playoff spot.
Cincinnati have caught the Pittsburgh Steelers, who surprisingly lost against the Browns last week. If the Steelers continue to show that inconsistency, and the Bengals continue in their impressive form they should be able to close out with a place in the postseason.
Meanwhile San Diego sit second in a weak AFC West division, with a record of 4-7. They are above the even more disappointing Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs. It is hugely unlikely that the Chargers can win this and every game through the end of the season, and even if they do it might not be enough for them to gain a playoff berth. The season is likely already over the the Chargers.
San Diego seem to be simply limping through the final portion of the season when they will have a big hard look at themselves and see what needs to be done to stop this happening again next season.
