Last week, the Cincinnati Bengals ended their 31-year playoff win drought with a thrilling 26-19 win over the Las Vegas Raiders.
This week, it was another barn-burner that came down to the final seconds, but the Bengals came out on top once again, beating the Tennessee Titans 19-16, this time thanks to an Evan McPherson walk-off kick to send Bengaldom to the 2022 AFC Championship Game.
Evan McPherson continued what should go down as one of the best kickers a rookie has ever had, and this was unquestionably one of the best playoff games the NFL has ever seen from a rookie.
The final one was a 52-yarder as time expired.
Burrow finished the game 28-of-37 passing for 348 yards and one interception, but the Titans defense did not make it easy on him — Tennessee tied the single-game playoff record with nine sacks. Despite the defensive effort, the Titans’ postseason ended in disappointment again after earning the No. 1 seed and a first-round bye.
