The game will be delayed by 15 minutes this week with a new kick-off time of 8:30 PM ET. Delays happen like this ESPN can accommodate it The Rose Bowl, which kicks off at 5 p.m. ET Monday with Penn State’s matchup with Utah.

The Bengals (11-4) will go into the game knowing a win will seal the win in the AFC North while the Bills (12-3) will enter the game knowing a win will put them in the driver’s seat for first place overall. Seeds in the Asian Qualifiers.

If the Bengals win, that will guarantee them at least a No. 3 seed in the AFC, and open the door for them to earn the No. 1 seed overall. However, for the Bengals to clinch the top seed, they wouldn’t just need to beat the Bills on Monday and crows next week, but they will also need to heads to lose it Raiders in week 17.

This game will be the first time the Bills and Bengals have met in January since January 1989 when Cincinnati topped Buffalo in the AFC title game.
