The 4-3 Denver Broncos will go into hostile territory this week as they get set to play the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. The game will be played at 1 PM ET at the Bengals Paul Brown Stadium. Cincinnati comes into the game with a 3-4 record and is desperate for a win to try to stay afloat in the AFC North. Denver, meanwhile, wants to keep their lead in the AFC West division. As of late, these two teams have been going in opposite directions with Denver seeming to come into their own while the Bengals and Andy Dalton seem to be hitting a sophomore slump.
Denver beat the New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football last Sunday. There, they were able to dominate the Saints to pick up a 34-14 victory. Peyton is playing just as good as he ever has and really seems to have found an identity with the offense. He has gotten much help from veteran running back Willis McGahee who continues to get good production despite being on “the other side of 30”.
Cincinnati is coming off their bye week from week 8, but lost their last played game in week 7. That loss came against the Pittsburgh Steelers in a primetime game on NBC’s Sunday Night Football. They stayed competitive at home and even held a lead the majority of the game. Ultimately they slipped up and lost the game 24-17. If they hope to win this Sunday they must continue to put points on the board as Manning and Denver should get their share of scores
