NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano tweeted that the Cincinnati Bengals' upcoming Monday Night Football game at Paycor Stadium against the Buffalo Bills "might be the best MNF game EVER." ESPN's Field Yates tweeted that it's a historic Monday Night Football matchup.
Both pointed out that the 12-3 Bills and 11-4 Bengals have 23 combined wins, tied for the most ever entering an MNF game.
Cincinnati has won seven consecutive games. Buffalo enters with a six-game winning streak.
With a win against Buffalo, Cincinnati could move into position for the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoff picture, depending on how the Kansas City Chiefs fare Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
The Bills have clinched the AFC East title. The Bengals have clinched a playoff berth and enter Week 17 with a one-game lead in the AFC North.
The Bengals announced earlier this week that Cincinnati native and former Parliament-Funkadelic great Bootsy Collins is scheduled to perform his legendary song, "Fear Da Tiger," at halftime.
