The AFC playoff picture will shape out after todays’s final Monday Night Football matchup! Tonight the (10-4) Denver Broncos will host the (11-3) Cincinnati Bengals in what will be a must win for both teams if they want high seeding in the playoffs.

According to ESPN,

The Cincinnati Bengals are already in, the Denver Broncos would like to be in — the playoffs, that is — and Monday night’s game in Denver will have a lot to say about which team earns a much-coveted playoff bye.

The Bengals (11-3) have clinched their postseason spot and are currently the AFC’s No. 2 seed, behind the New England Patriots. The Broncos once had a three-game lead in the AFC West, a lead that’s now just one game after back-to-back losses.

The Broncos need two wins — Monday night against the Bengals and in the regular-season finale against the Chargers — to guarantee their best-possible playoff positioning, which would include a bye week for a battered team that desperately needs one.

Tonight, Brock Osweiler will once again be the starter for the Broncos and former Alabama QB A.J. McCarron will start for the Bengals.  I expect the Broncos to come out and get a big win over the Bengals tonight. Look for Osweiler to pass for 3 touchdowns and over 300 passing yards. A.J. McCarron will struggle tonight against the Broncos defense. Look for McCarron to toss two picks tonight both resulting in Broncos touchdown.

Bengals 17  Broncos 31
