Monday Night Football, week 16. The Cincinnati Bengals travel west to take on the Denver Broncos. This game should have had serious juice. Two season long leaders meeting late in the year to determine AFC Playoffs seeding. This one could have been a preview of the AFC Championship game. Still could be I suppose. But with both teams' starting quarterbacks sidelined by injury, a Brock Osweiler vs. A.J. McCarron shootout is a bit of a letdown from what could have been Peyton Manning and Andy Dalton.
Both teams will likely make the playoffs, although Denver could still conceivably miss out if they lose their last two games. Both teams are deep and loaded with talent. It could still be a great game. It's just... McCarron vs. Osweiler. Ugh.
