Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor isn’t exactly thrilled with the NFL’s resolution for the AFC playoff format.
The NFL announced earlier this week that they were cancelling the Bengals’ Week 17 home game against the Buffalo Bills. The game was called off on Monday night after Bills safety Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest following a tackle on Tee Higgins.
Thankfully, medical personnel was able to restore his heartbeat before Hamlin was taken away in a hospital. Hamlin has made significant progress and had his breathing tube removed, and he spoke with Bills coaches and teammates during a team meeting via FaceTime.

The NFL has already declared the Bengals the AFC North champions. The league also outlined their plans if certain scenarios unfold, including a) a neutral site for the AFC Championship Game and b) a coin flip to determine home field advantage for a potential Bengals-Baltimore Ravens Wild Card Round playoff game if Baltimore beats Cincinnati on Sunday.
Per ESPN’s Ben Baby, Taylor voiced displeasure over the the proposal before they became official on Friday:
The Kansas City Chiefs need a win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday to clinch the AFC’s top seed. Buffalo needs a win over the New England Patriots and a Kansas City loss to earn the conference’s lone first-round bye.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
