The Cincinnati Bengals have a shot at the No. 1 seed, but the likelihood of both the Chiefs losing to the Broncos and the Titans losing to the Texans is pretty low. It appears to be too small of a chance for the Bengals to risk an injury to their star quarterback Joe Burrow against Myles Garrett and the Browns. Burrow told reporters on Wednesday that he won’t play in Week 18, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
