The Cincinnati Bengals are at the Denver Broncos to face the only team standing in their way for a first round bye. The Bengals will look to beat the Broncos for the second year in a row, when they beat them at Paul Brown Stadium last season 37-28.
The Bengals are without Tyler Eifert and Andy Dalton for the second week in a row. A.J. McCarron will look to improve to 2-0 on his Bengals career, while Brock Osweiler is looking to end a two game losing streak.
There are two things we knew going into the game. First, the Bengals are in the playoffs, heck we knew that when they won last week. Second, the Bengals are the AFC North Champions, thanks to a Steelers loss on Sunday. The one thing we don’t know, can they go into week 17 with a first round bye, and a shot at home field advantage in week 17.
The Bengals have jumped out to a 14-3 lead at halftime and need to continue their defensive dominance and sustain their long offensive drives to keep the Broncos offense off the field. The Broncos will get the ball to start the 2nd half.
