Cincinnati (10-6) wrapped up the division title last week with a 34-31 upset of the Chiefs. Evan McPherson booted a chip-shot field goal as time expired to capture the AFC North crown for his team. The team is still in play for the No. 1 seed in the AFC depending on how everything shakes out in the AFC this week. They’ll have to do it without quarterback Joe Burrow, who is sitting out of this game with a knee injury.
Cleveland (7-9) was officially eliminated from playoff contention before even stepping onto the field last week and got beat by the Steelers 26-14 on Monday Night Football. Baker Mayfield threw two touchdowns and two interceptions in the loss and the questions about his long-term viability with the franchise are starting to pile up as they lumber into the offseason.
