The Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals will square off in the AFC Divisional Round on Sunday afternoon. The Bengals, of course, are the defending AFC Champions and are looking to get back to the Super Bowl. The Bills, meanwhile, have been one of the best teams in the NFL in recent years, but have not been able to get over the hump in the Playoffs. One former NFL player, who faced the Bengals in the Super Bowl last season, believes that, at least this week, the Bills will advance.
Eric Weddle Says the Bengals Have “No Chance” Against the Bills
Yesterday, former NFL safety Eric Weddle appeared on the show “Up and Adams.” In his interview with host Kay Adams, Weddle stated that the Bengals were outplayed last week against the Baltimore Ravens.
“They got zero chance against the Bills,” Weddle says in the video. “They can’t protect Joe. They can’t protect him. They’re playing without any linemen…How do you manufacture not turning the ball over…they’re just down too many guys.”

Of course, the Baltimore Ravens were without quarterback Lamar Jackson last week, too. It truly was a contest between two decimated teams. The Bills, meanwhile, have headed into the Playoffs relatively healthy.
Weddle Also Praised Joe Burrow and the Bengals
This is not to say that Eric Weddle dislikes the Bengals by any means. In fact, he also praised Joe Burrow and acknowledged the fact that the Bengals have been through this Playoffs run before. However, the Bills have such a high-powered offense and hard-hitting defense that the injury-riddled Bengals will not be able to compete.
