Quarterbacks are on show when the Chargers travel to Cincinnati in the AFC wild card game on Sunday. Andy Dalton has been inconsistent at times, swinging between one of the league's best and more mediocre. San Diego has enjoyed seeing a renewed Philip Rivers play some of his best football and push into the playoffs, and wants his first playoff win in five years.

More on the matchup: The last meeting between these sides was a surprisingly low-scoring affair. Impressive games from A.J. Green and BenJarvus Green-Ellis ensured a 17-10 Bengals win. Things could be very different this time around. Running back Ryan Mathews is getting more opportunities, and the Chargers offense has thrived as a result, paired with passing reliability from Rivers could turn the tide. The pressure is on Dalton and the Bengals to avoid being another one-and-done victim in 2014.
