The final game of Week 17 will be a Monday Night Football matchup featuring the Buffalo Bills (12-3) on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals (11-4).
The Bills lead the all-time series between these AFC teams, 17-13, and have won two of their three most recent meetings. They last faced off back in 2019, with the Bills winning in Buffalo, 21-17. They haven’t played each other in Cincinnati since 2017, when the Bengals actually got the home win, 20-16.
BLG explains why we should be rooting for the Bills on Monday night, in our Week 17 rooting guide:
BUFFALO BILLS at CINCINNATI BENGALS: Call me crazy but if I’m the Eagles I’d rather see the Bills than the Bengals in the Super Bowl. Something about Joe Burrow scares me while I believe Josh Allen, an excellent player, is more prone to making an erratic mistake or two. Root for the Bills.
