Buffalo Bills safety Dumar Hamlin continues to make steady progress after suffering cardiac arrest in Monday’s game at Peycoe Stadium, and the positive news is that we’ll be talking football again Here are my predictions for the Bengals regular season finale.
NFL Predictions: Cincinnati Bengals (11-4) vs. Baltimore Ravens (10-6), Sunday, 1 p.m. CBS
For Bengals fans, refocusing on football should be a nice outlet after a stressful week. Instead, Cincinnati supporters are frustrated with his NFL.
The NFL has decided not to restart the Bengals-Bills game. OK. However, the NFL has somehow punished the Bengals’ decision by changing the rules regarding the playoff tiebreaker.
It’s crazy that the AFC North champion Bengals (the hottest team in the conference) could go on the road in the first round of the playoffs if they lose to Baltimore. Even more infuriating is that decisions are made by tossing a coin. Changing the rules mid-season sets a bad precedent and raises serious questions about fairness in a league that claims equality is everything.

But please come on Sunday around 4pm. The Bengals are still behind the Ravens without Lamar Jackson. Even with Baltimore having a star quarterback who has been out for a month with a knee injury, I don’t think the Bengals will lose this game.
The Bengals have too much to do and lots of motivating factors.
They’re rallying around Hamlin, and as he continues to recuperate at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center miles away, the Bengals will feel the urge to win for the Bills’ defensive back. Ready to perform for the fans who have shown their incredible love and support for Hamlin.
The Bengals use the NFL’s slight advantage to their advantage. They have a way of turning disrespect and criticism to their advantage. They’re going for his seven-game winning streak after people questioned mid-season that he suspected last season’s Super Bowl streak was a fluke.
If that wasn’t enough, the Bengals will look to avenge their two-point loss to AFC North rivals the Ravens in October.
Forget the coin toss, determine the Bengals’ first-round playoff site. A win would ensure a playoff game at home, and the Bengals will head back to Peycoe Stadium next weekend to start the postseason.
