Chat with Raiders fans during the Chargers vs Bengals Wild Card game.

The Chargers are taking on the Bengals in the second day of Wild Card weekend. It's also the second AFC West team to play this weekend with the Chiefs blowing a huge lead against the Colts in the first game of the weekend.

This is the second meeting this season for the Chargers and Bengals. The two teams met in week 13 with the Chargers falling to the Bengals 17-10.

The Bengals have been a solid defensive team all season long. They were the third ranked defense, allowing just over 300 yards of total offense per game. It's a balanced defense too with both the rush and pass defense landing in the top five.

The Chargers have come on late in the season to begin playing like one of the better teams in football. They won four straight to finish out the season and five of their last six including sweeping the season series against the Chiefs and beating the high powered Broncos as well.
