NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, announces that the game between the Buffalo Bills and the Cincinnati Bengals has been postponed indefinitely. The update came after the Bengals safe Damar Hamlin collapsed on the field due to cardiac arrest.
The head coach of the Bengals went to the locker room to check on his condition. Hamlin’s heartbeat was resumed; however, he is said to be in critical condition and is being treated in a hospital. Several NFL betting sites like BetMGM and FanDuel have called out the best to be void with a commitment to issue full refunds directly to the accounts of their customers.
It was earlier expected that the game would resume. A thorough deliberation of 1 hour then concluded with the decision to indefinitely suspend the game between both teams.
Games for Week 18 are scheduled to follow their timetable accordingly with no effect at all. The Bengals will next face the Baltimore Ravens on January 08, 2023. The Bengals are coming with a great win record, having not faced a single loss in the last five games. Their record stands at 11-4, with the previous game being a very close call.
The New England Patriots left out by a margin of 4 points after putting up a total of 18 against 22 scored by the Bengals. It was a lot to take in the first half itself, as the Bengals defined the game in that section. A score of 12 and 10 appear in the first and second quarters, respectively. The Patriots tried to equalize the situation but in vain.
Twelve points came up in the last competing moments. Where they fell short was in the third quarter, which could have made a lot of difference. Joe Burrow registered 375 yards for 3 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Jones responded with 240 yards, 2 touchdowns, and zero interceptions.
Call it a close game despite the Bengals looking in full control till the end.One of the largest margins came in the event between the Bengals and the Browns, where the latter fell short by a whopping 13 points. Only the first quarter registered, not a single point. Following that was a fight worth watching, especially since the Browns showed to bounce back. It was a long road drawn by 13 points before halftime that saw Cleveland reach only 3.
Being able to come up with something in the last quarter could have put them in a better position. Alas, the evening danced with the Bengals on the victory music.Joe Burrow went for 239 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception to compete with Watson’s 276 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. The Bengals retained the maximum yards of 363 against 344 for the Browns.
Prayers, for now, are with Damar Hamlin, his family members, and friends. Paramedics administered CPR at the right time for him to reach the hospital. More updates are awaited from the officials. Lastly, the NFL stated that there had been no decision made yet about the resumption of the game at any other future date.
