The Cincinnati Bengals escaped their Super Wild Card Weekend game against the Baltimore Ravens with a win in what turned out to be a surprisingly close game. Looking back, some of Cincinnati's issues may have stemmed from injuries to their offensive line.

Now, as the Bengals prepare for a Divisional Round matchup against the Buffalo Bills, they will be without two key pieces on their offensive line.

Left tackle Jonah Williams and right guard Alex Cappa have both been officially ruled out for Sunday's game in Buffalo, delivering a crushing blow to Cincinnati's offense.

The Bengals already come into this contest as the clear underdogs, and now will be put in an even tougher position with a depleted offensive line. Williams started 16 games this season and played 100% of the snaps in those games.

Cappa was also an anchor on the O-line in 2022, starting in 16 games as well and playing 98% of the offensive snaps. Missing multiple starters on the offensive line could be a huge issue for Cincinnati against one of the best defenses in the league.

Joe Burrow and the Bengals' offense will have their hands full on Sunday, where they are currently 5.5-point road underdogs according to FanDuel Sportsbook's latest NFL odds.
