Cincinnati Bengals fans have something to cheer about this year.

Hang on, Cincinnati Bengals fans — there's more to come.

The team may have lost to intrastate rival the Cleveland Browns during the regular-season's final game on Sunday, but the Bengals still will advance to the AFC Wild Card this weekend.

The No. 4-seed Bengals will host the No. 5-seed Las Vegas Raiders at 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, at Paul Brown Stadium downtown. The NFL says the game will air live on NBC, Peacock and Universo.
Cincinnati and Las Vegas both are 10-7 on the regular season. The Bengals last saw the Raiders on Nov. 21, when Cincinnati won 32-13, earning Queen City residents Gold Star chili yet again.

The Bengals are the AFC North champions.

In December, Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase, defensive end Trey Hendrickson and running back Joe Mixon landed spots on the AFC Pro Bowl team that will play Sunday, Feb. 6, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. The game returns after being cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
