Sunday update: The Bills will have to wait until Week 18 to clinch the No. 1 seed, but more importantly, absolutely have to beat the Bengals on Monday. The Chiefs struggled against the Broncos but pulled out the win to improve to 13-3 and keep the pressure on the Bills. Buffalo would have needed a win either way since Cincinnati holds the tiebreaker edge.
The Buffalo Bills will take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 17’s Monday Night Football game. The Bills have locked down the AFC East already but now have a chance to secure the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoff picture.
Buffalo has won six games in a row. Most recently, they survived against the Chicago Bears, 35-13. It was a really cold, very windy game that saw kicker Tyler Bass struggle to make kicks. Josh Allen threw for only 172 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions but added 41 yards and a touchdown on the ground.
The Bills are 1-point favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook. The point total is set for 49.5. Buffalo has -115 moneyline odds, while Cincinnati is installed as the -105 underdog.
