Monday Night Football Week 17: Bills at Bengals
Alright wow, just wow! This is the easily the matchup of the week between two Super Bowl contenders with starting QB’s at the peak of their powers. This game could be a potential preview of the AFC Championship Game and this game has serious implications for who will be hosting it! The winner of this game will have the inside track to the 1 seed in the AFC playoffs with both teams having tiebreakers against the Chiefs. The winner of this game will get a major boost in the battle for the 1 seed.
I think the Bills win this game and end up getting the 1 seed and the coveted bye week. If this game was happening 2 weeks ago I’d feel better about the Bengals, but the first half against the Bucs happened and the second half against the Patriots happened. It just doesn’t feel like the Bengals are able to put together a full 60 minute game. The injuries are starting to get to them with La’el Collins on the offensive line now on IR. I still have questions about coach Zach Taylor and the Bengals offense is starting to devolve into what it was in the beginning of the season. Meanwhile the Bills are as healthy as they’ve ever been and are playing really well in the midst of their 6 game win streaks. Josh Allen seems to be over his UCL injury and playing like his usual self. I think the Bills go into Cinci and win this game and secure the 1 seed!
Pick: Bills Moneyline -125
