Shannon Sharpe to be honored — Call the national guard!! The greatest tight end to wear an NFL uniform (yes, I’m biased) will receive his Hall of Fame ring during halftime today. Congratulations #84!!!
Bengals defense, running game fearsome — In a lot of ways, the Bengals are built very similarly to the underdog that beat the Broncos last week. They have a disruptive front four defensively, a good running game, and an unknown, perhaps underrated commodity at quarterback. The Broncos will need to stop the run, open up their passing attack and gain an early lead to pull off a convincing win.

Bengals — S Taylor Mays, S Robert Sands, LB Dontay Moch, OL Otis Hudson, TE Donald Lee, WR Ryan Whalen; DE Robert Geathers.
