The Bengals now know when they'll be playing their first playoff game. CBS and the NFL announced Cincinnati will play Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on the road at Indianapolis.
The Bengals will get a full week of rest before their next game, which is always a positive. They'll face the same Colts team that won handily in a Week 7 meeting that was also in Indy.
That game saw the Bengals offense fail to show up, while the colts offense moved the ball at will en route to a 27-0 win. The Colts frankly aren't that good, and the Bengals played arguably their worst overall game of the year that day, in addition to being without A.J. Green.
Had the Bengals won at Pittsburgh and claimed the AFC North, they would have still played at that same time, though it would have been in Paul Brown Stadium against the Ravens. Cincinnati swept Baltimore in the regular season.
