CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The energy in the Queen City is palpable.

There’s fewer than 24 hours to go before the Bengals take the field against the Las Vegas Raiders in Paul Brown Stadium.

It’s the team’s first playoff game since 2015. A win would be the franchise’s first since 1991.

The city is orange all over, from the tiara atop Great American Tower to the water tower in Fort Thomas to the Ark Encounter.

Mayor Aftab Pureval signed a proclamation declaring Jan. 15, 2022, as “Who Dey Day” in Cincinnati.

Needless to say, the love for the Bengals cannot be missed no matter where you look.
