The Cincinnati Bengals 2023 season is coming to an end before any of their friends were hoping for. After losing their last two games, they have been eliminated from playoff contention.

The Cleveland Browns are also locked into the No. 5 seed for the AFC, so they will be resting plenty of starters.

A win gives the Bengals a winning season and a 1-5 record against the AFC North. You can call that a point of pride, but this certainly feels like a season where the injury luck was not on Cincinnati’s side with Joe Burrow starting off the season playing through a calf injury and then hurting his wrist toward the end of the year to end his season.

Jake Browning has done about as well as you could expect being thrust into Burrow’s shoes. However, this is the last time to catch the Bengals until next season.

Here is how to watch the Bengals take on the Chiefs.
