Showdown for AFC North title moves to prime time
NEW YORK (AP) The showdown for the AFC North title will be played in prime time.
The NFL does not designate a Sunday night game for Week 17 at the start of the season, waiting to see which matchup has the most intriguing playoff implications.
The Steelers (10-5) beat Kansas City 20-12 on Sunday to clinch a postseason berth. Cincinnati (9-4-1) hosts AFC West champ Denver on Monday night. If the Bengals lose to the Broncos, they could go into the regular-season finale in danger of missing the playoffs.
