The surging Denver Broncos will take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9 with a chance to pad their AFC West lead.
The Broncos (4-3) are coming off a convincing 34-14 win over the scuffling New Orleans Saints in Week 8. Quarterback Peyton Manning led the way for Denver, throwing for 305 yards and three touchdowns, and became the first quarterback in NFL history to pass for at least 300 yards, throw three TDs and complete 70 percent of his passes in four consecutive games. Running back Willis McGahee paced the rushing attack with 122 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries.
The Bengals (3-4) are coming off a bye week, but have struggled of late. Quarterback Andy Dalton has thrown at least one interception in every one of Cincinnati's games this season and is coming off a brutal performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Oct. 21 in which he completed 14-of-28 for just 105 yards.
Kickoff at Paul Brown Stadium is scheduled for 11 a.m. MT and the game will be televised on CBS.
