For the CityBeat Streets column, CityBeat reporters are asking local residents about a different topic each week.

What Cincinnati restaurant makes a great margarita? How will the big sports teams do this year? What issues should local government focus on? Nobody has more opinions on these and other pressing questions than Cincinnatians themselves. In our new column CityBeat Streets, CityBeat reporters are asking local residents about a different topic each week, highlighting the Queen City's good, bad and ugly.

“Hopefully good. Buffalo is a rough team, so hopefully we win. Just wish for the best. If we take Buffalo, we're gonna win it all.”

“Super Bowl, baby. I think the Bengals will make the Super Bowl because we got Joe Burrow, we got Ja’Marr Chase and we got Tee Higgins. What more could you ask for?”

“I think the Bengals are going to the Super Bowl. They just played one of the best defenses in the league [the Baltimore Ravens]. I don’t think anybody else’s defense in the AFC is that good. I think they’ve got as good a shot as anybody.”

“You know, I think it’s going to be a big match-up with the Bills. I’m from Cleveland originally, so I’m kind of in traitor territory here, but I think it’s going to be a really exciting game. I hope they win.”

“I think the rest of the season is really up to Joe Burrow. He’s got Super Bowl capacity; they’ll go as far as they can take it. I think this is going to be a special game, especially because of the incident that happened last time against the Bills [with Damar Hamlin's injury]. No matter what happens, both teams are going to come out a winner, build stronger bonds, play really good football and show good sportsmanship. ”
