This arrangement could appear to be more attractive if the game implied pretty much nothing.

However, the game was entirely significant for the two groups, who are securely in the end-of-the-season games yet battling for the No. 1 seed, which accompanies an important season finisher bye. Their completions likewise have suggestions for different groups, quite Kansas City (13-3). The Bills (12-3) can acquire that No. 1 seed assuming that they dominate their last match of the year on Sunday against the New Britain Nationalists (12-3). The Bengals (11-4) can likewise get the opening with two successes, yet they would require a Kansas City misfortune at the Las Vegas Bandits (6-10) on Saturday’s Bills-Bengals Game.

Grant the game to the Bengals.

Cincinnati drove the game, 7-3 when it was stopped, and hypothetically might have been granted the triumph in view of that.

This was an especially unappetizing situation in light of multiple factors. Scarcely an eighth of the game was played, causing the Bengals’ lead to appear to be paltry. What’s more, given the frightening night looked by the Bills specifically, granting them a misfortune appears to be unduly brutal.

Push the end of the season Bills-Bengals Game back.

The N.F.L. had a secret weapon: There are seven days off in the season finisher plan.

The association might have pushed all the season finisher games back multi-week, leaving the few days of Jan. 14-15, presently set for the trump card round, for the resumption of Bills-Bengals. The end-of-the-season games would have then begun on Jan. 21, the bye week would have been loaded up with the meeting title games, and the Super Bowl would be played as booked on Feb. 12.

Assuming that that appears to leave a somewhat exposed end of the week, with simply a piece of one game, the association might have begun the N.F.C. end-of-the-season games on time and pushed back just the A.F.C. Bills-Bengals Game. The N.F.C. groups could then have been given a bye after either the special case or division adjusts. Both gathering title games would have been played in what was the bye week, and the Super Bowl would in any case have been played on time.

There was the point of reference. After the 1982 football strike cost the association 57 days in the season, the N.F.L. added an additional seven-day stretch of ordinary season games and pushed the end of the season games back seven days, taking out the week off before the Super Bowl.

In 2001, following seven days of games were dropped due to the Sept. 11 assaults, the association pushed the Super Bowl itself back seven days. While that could be a situation this year, the intricacy of rescheduling such a mammoth occasion makes that an ugly choice.
