The Denver Broncos (5-6) have won two-straight and three of their last five to insert themselves back into the playoff hunt for that sixth spot in the AFC after slaying two-straight teams that were on six-game winning streaks.
If you see ORANGE in your region in the map below, then you will get the Broncos-Bengals game on your local CBS station this weekend. Alaska will be joining us in the orange this week, but Hawaii will be in the yellow.
Historically, the Broncos have not played well in the eastern time zone, but the Cincinnati Bengals (5-6) are reeling due to injuries and are very beatable at this point in the season. Head Coach Vance Joseph isn’t looking at this game any differently, because the Broncos can’t afford to look at any game as if its a gimmie.
“No, not for our team,” Joseph said of playing a team on a losing streak. “We are a 5-6 team. We’re trying to prove who we want to be. It’s no different than playing Houston, playing the Chargers or playing Pittsburgh last week. We’re still trying to prove that we can win games in this league. We’re 5-6. We’ve done nothing up to this point. Our goal is to win one game and get even. 6-6 is a better record than 5-7, so we want to get there first, and then move on from that game.”
The game will be called by Spero Dedes (play-by-play) and Adam Archuleta (analyst). Kickoff is set for 11:00 a.m. Mile High time on Sunday, December 2, 2018 at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio.
