The Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals will meet in the AFC divisional round weeks after their regular-season matchup was ruled a no-show after Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field.

The Bengals will travel to Buffalo to play the Bills at Highmark Stadium. Their Week 17 matchup was played at Paycor Stadium and was halted towards the end of the first quarter when Hamlin collapsed on the field after making a tackle on Tee Higgins. Hamlin went into cardiac arrest and needed to have his heartbeat restored on the field. He was released from the hospital less than two weeks later.
