WATCH: Late Bengals TD sends Bills to playoffs and knocks out Ravens
Last Updated: 01/01/18 8:33am
The Buffalo Bills are back in the NFL playoffs after an absence of 17 years, though they owe a large debt of gratitude to the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Bills needed to beat the Dolphins in Miami - which they did, 22-16 - and hope the Baltimore Ravens slipped up at home against the Bengals.
And in the final minute of that game, the Ravens were, in fact, leading 27-24 until Cincinnati QB Andy Dalton threw a 49-yard touchdown to Tyler Boyd to sensationally dump the Ravens out of postseason contention.

Defeat for the Ravens means the Bills sneak into an AFC Wild Card spot, ending the longest streak in any American sport of not making the playoffs. They travel to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars next Sunday.
