History suggests the Bengals should fight in Tennessee (0-7 in Playoff Road Games)

The Cincinnati Bengals, their fans, and everyone involved in the organization are still celebrating after the franchise’s first playoff win since 1991. The victory went to the now-defunct Houston Oilers in Houston. Round 41-14 Wild Card. They continued to lose in the Division round to the Raiders 20-10. While it was an impressive victory, its luster has long since faded 31 years from now.

But, new life has been breathed into this team thanks to young stars such as Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase and Joe Mixon. They put on a helluva performance against the Las Vegas Raiders in the Wild Card round with a 26-19 victory and took another step towards another major milestone.

However, the Bengal team had a big problem for the past 31 years that prevented them from making it through to the first round. That problem could reappear in round two if historical trends are to be believed. See, the Bengals didn’t win a playoff along the way. When. In fact, the Bengals already have a history of losing long-distance matches in the knockout stages. It all started back in 1970 with their first trip to the knockout stages when they were knocked out 17-0 by the Baltimore Colts. This trend continued until the 2014 knockout round. That was the last time the Bengals played top lane in the post-season. Ironically, they lost to the Colts again, but to the Indianapolis Colts, 26-10.

Now that the Bengals have also done well in losing their home games in the knockout stages, it’s not just a problem they’ve encountered along the way. Out of their 10 home games in the knockout round, the Bengal team had an overall score of 5-5. They have also played two playoffs at neutral sites since 1970, both losing.

Let me be clear. This does not mean that I recommend betting on team Bengal this weekend at Titans because they lost on the road three times in a row between 1970-1975. Because that is absurd. I just find it interesting that the Bengals, as a franchise, have never won a road match in the knockouts.

However, they are 3.5 points behind this weekend in Tennesee, according to WynnBET Sportsbook. But, they also have the best team, and the best QB, they’ve had since I can remember. Maybe it’s time to take home a playoff win at home to Paul Brown.
