The Bengals (10-7) host the Raiders (10-7) in the NFL Wild Card Round on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. ET. The match will be televised by NBC.

Las Vegas is making its first playoff appearance since 2016, when it was then known as the Oakland Raiders. The Raiders went 7-5 under coach Rich Bisaccia after former coach Jon Gruden was fired this season, capping the year with a four-game winning streak over the Browns, Broncos, Colts and the Chargers.

Las Vegas had three players named to the Pro Bowl this season: defensive end Maxx Crosby; linebacker Denzel Perryman; and punter AJ Cole. Perryman was tied for third in the league with 102 solo tackles and also had three deflected passes and two fumbles.

This will be the second meeting between the Bengals and the Raiders this season. Cincinnati won the first contest, 32-13, on Nov. 21 in Las Vegas.
