Chargers vs. Bengals: Takeaways from Cincinnati's 27-10 Loss to San Diego
Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals suffered a crushing 27-10 defeat at the hands of the San Diego Chargers in the Wild Card Round at Paul Brown Stadium.

The Bengals entered the game with an 8-0 mark at home in the regular season and had scored more than 40 points in four of their last five contests.

On Sunday, Cincinnati seemingly did not show up. San Diego had its way in the trenches on both sides of the football, and quarterback Andy Dalton's support crumbled.

The loss marks the third consecutive year the Bengals have made a first-round exit from the postseason. Now, the focus shifts to the offseason, where a potentially wild free-agent market and NFL draft await.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the loss.
