Las Vegas Raiders vs. Bengals NFL Wild Card Playoffs Picks (01-15-2022)

Last year was a lost year for Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow. Cincinnati took Burrow first overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. Burrow was sold as the man that would transform the sad-sack franchise with the NFL odds. But Burrow’s rookie season was wiped out by injury. However, the LSU national champion and Heisman Trophy winner has stormed back to prominence. Cincinnati is in the playoffs for the first time in five years. But the Bengals want more. Specifically, Cincinnati seeks its first playoff win in 31 years. The resurgent Raiders visit on Saturday.
