Chargers vs. Bengals: Who Has the Edge at Every Position?

For the second time this year, the Chargers and Bengals will meet. This time, it's in the playoffs. Who has the edge on paper?

For the third straight season, the Cincinnati Bengals have reached the playoffs. This year, they have done so as the AFC North champions and the conference's third seed. 

They will host the 9-7 San Diego Chargers in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, with the game scheduled to kick off on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. ET. This will be the second time the Bengals have faced the Chargers this year. They defeated the Bolts, 17-10 in San Diego in Week 13. 

The Bengals haven't won a playoff game since 1990, but hosting the Chargers while having an undefeated regular-season record at home increases the odds that they can be more than one-and-done this year. But San Diego is a solid team, and Cincinnati will have to be at its best—nothing will be handed to the Bengals in the postseason.

So how do these two teams match up? Read on as we examine each key positional battle between the Bengals and Chargers to see which team has the edge.
