The Cincinnati Bengals and Indianapolis Colts are set to face off in a game that has some pretty big implications for the AFC playoff race. The Bengals are currently on the outside looking in, and the Colts are occupying the 7th seed.

So, this game being played between two backup starters seemingly gives it a bit of that unfortunate feeling. However, these two backups have put together some good performances.

Jake Browning is coming off an upset of the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he completed over 86 percent of his passes. Gardner Minshew also has won four straight games with the Colts to get them to this point.

Both of these teams have some pretty good supporting casts. The Colts have a pretty good offensive line that has led to the team having running backs Jonathan Taylor and Zach Moss produce at a high level. Taylor will miss this game, but Moss has been a great replacement when called on.

The Bengals have one of the best collections of skill players you can find in the NFL that you can add rookie running back Chase Brown to after he had 61 yards on only nine carries. He is added on to Joe Mixon, Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd.

Not too shabby for Browning to be able to make some magic again.
