Buffalo Bills at Cincinnati Bengals

The Buffalo Bills were scheduled to play the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football in Week 17 last season. This was a marquee game for the NFL and being this late in the season, the expectation was that it would play a major role in who would secure the number one seed in the playoffs.

The game would end up not being completed after Damar Hamlin's scary injury in the first half. Thankfully, the news since that injury has all been positive and Hamlin has been cleared to return to play football.

The matchup this season once again features two of the best quarterbacks in the NFL in Joe Burrow and Josh Allen. The Bills will also be looking to put their AFC Divisional Round game behind them, a game where the Bengals blew out the Bills by a final score of 27-10.

With a game that will almost certainly have playoff ramifications, it would make sense for the NFL to once again put these two teams in a primetime spot this season.
