And the grand finale approaches faster than we all thought as this Monday December 22nd will be the last Monday of football action NFL enthusiasts will enjoy. The action will be taking place at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati as the Bengals welcome the Denver Broncos.
The AFC North first place, the Bengals – currently hold a 9-4-1 overall record and come from a recent win over Cleveland Browns while the AFC West leading team, the Broncos hold a 11-3 record in the league. After shutting down Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel in his first career start Sunday, the Bengals have quite the turnaround this week as they prepare to face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos on Monday night.
“It’s Peyton Manning and it’s Johnny Manziel,” safety George Iloka said, “He’ll be a good quarterback one of these days, but let’s not put him in the same type of category right now. The only thing we can take from last week is how fired up we came, how intense we were and try and come out the gate the same way.”
The Bengals jumped to a 10-0 lead and gave up just two rushing yards and four passing yards in the first quarter against the Browns. source: http://espn.go.com/
On the other hand, Peyton Manning’s practice work was limited for a second consecutive day, but Head Coach John Fox said the quarterback was “improving” as he deals with a thigh injury that forced him back to the locker room for extra treatment early in practice one day earlier.

“Well, I haven’t seen any cause for concern,” said wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders after Friday’s practice. “Obviously he had a really good day at practice today.”
Four other Denver players were limited Friday: left tackle Ryan Clady (thigh), running back Ronnie Hillman (foot), center Will Montgomery (knee) and cornerback Kayvon Webster(cornerback). And offensive tackle Paul Cornick (toe) and linebacker Brandon Marshall (foot sprain) did not practice Thursday or Friday: Marshall said that he worked in a pool Thursday, two days after he was able to ditch a walking boot after suffering his injury Sunday at San Diego.
