3.) Tee Higgins vs. Buffalo Bills

An AFC Division Round playoff rematch between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals will be a game for NFL fans to watch on primetime. The last time these two met, the Bengals went into Orchard Park and flat-out dominated the Bills.

Will the Bills get their revenge, or will the Bengals prove that the playoff game was not a fluke? No matter the result between the two teams, one thing that should work out in favor of the Bengals is their pass-attack against a beaten-up Bills secondary. While Buffalo managed to improve the corner position by trading for Rasul Douglas from the Green Bay Packers, the Bills still have a tough matchup going up against Ja’Marr Chase and Tee Higgins.

Higgins has yet to eclipse 100 receiving yards in a game this season, but provides a physical matter to his game that allows him to win the contested catches. Even though the Bills’ defense has yet to give up more than 278 passing yards in a game, this Bengals team is back from their rough start at the beginning of the season and the Buffalo secondary faces arguably their toughest challenge this season. Look for Higgins to get involved in the middle of the field, an area that the Bills have not done well at defending this season.
