The Cincinnati Bengals picked up their first playoff win since 1991 after beating the Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday night, 26-19.
The last time the Bengals won a playoff game, Sam Wyche was roaming the sideline and calling plays for the team. The Bengals beat the Houston Oilers 41-14 and would later lose to the Raiders in the divisional round.
Since then, the Bengals were on a massive playoff losing streak. Marvin Lewis guided the team back to the postseason during the 2005 season but the team lost in the wild card round and six more times after that.
Raiders have gone 19 seasons since their last playoff win, Bengals 31. So one franchise will be feeling tonight what it hasn’t for years. https://t.co/yIYiEiDYQ0

The Bengals have not won a playoff game since January 6, 1991, the longest active drought in the NFL.
They went from worst to first in the AFC North and today host the Raiders with a chance to snap that streak.
Should be an electric atmosphere at Paul Brown stadium.
