One of the more exciting games this week, the outcome will have a huge impact on the AFC Wild Card picture.
The 6-5 Bengals are knocking on the playoff door, and a win combined with a Pittsburgh loss would propel them into the Wild Card.
At 4-7, a win would move the Chargers that much closer to contention, bringing them within one win of the Bengals—and potentially Steelers—for that final spot.
This is a tough game to call. Both teams are fairly even, and nothing stands out. The only dominating stat is San Diego's fifth-ranked rush defense, but the Bengals don't rely on the run to begin with.
The Bolts put up a really strong fight against Baltimore last week, and they've got the home-field advantage. Not to mention they're always a second-half team.
With the semi-upset, San Diego moves closer to the playoffs, Cincinnati falls further behind and Baltimore clinches the AFC North.
Cincinnati 21, San Diego 24
