Following Cincinnati's 30-0 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, the Bengals advance their record to 9-4-1 and improve their overall winning percentage to .679. The Bengals will maintain a half-game lead over the Steelers and Ravens heading into week 16.
Despite that, Cincinnati will face a gauntlet over the next two weeks.
They'll host the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football next week, which slaps Cincinnati with a double-shot of "oh sh*t". It's the whole primetime thing that Cincinnati has massively failed at recently, compounded by Peyton Manning's undefeated record against the Cincinnati Bengals. Then, the Bengals head to Pittsburgh for the regular season finale against the Steelers.
Week 16: Denver Broncos (MNF)
Week 17: at Pittsburgh Steelers
Week 16: Kansas City Chiefs
Week 17: Cincinnati Bengals
Week 16: at Houston Texans
Week 17: Cleveland Browns
As for the rest of the AFC, the Patriots, Colts and Broncos clinched their respective divisions.
