Drew Brees made a lot of history against Cincinnati.

The Cincinnati Bengals returned to the playoffs this year after winning the AFC North and clinching a home game inside Paul Brown Stadium. 

And the NFL thought it was good to have the road to the Super Bowl begin in Cincinnati, as the Bengals' matchup against the Raiders is the first playoff game of the postseason with a 4:30 p.m. Saturday kickoff. 

The game is on NBC (and streaming on Peacock). There was a chance Cincinnati fans could have seen Bengals legend Cris Collinsworth and former Reds radio announcer Al Michaels announce the game, but that's not who the announcers are on Saturday. 

Instead, Drew Brees will make his playoff debut as an analyst while Mike Tirico will be the play-by-play announcer. Tirico has some connections with the Bengals. He is a longtime friend of fellow Syracuse alum Dan Hoard, the radio voice of both the Bengals and the Cincinnati Bearcats.
