Both teams have a lot to play for. The Bills are looking for revenge after losing to the Bengals in the playoffs last year. It will also be an emotional return to Cincinnati for the first time since the Damar Hamlin game. They will also be looking to take the lead in the division after the Dolphins dropped to 6-3 this morning. The Bengals seem to have hit their stride and have won three games in a row including a 31-17 over the 49ers last week. Joe Mixon is a crucial part to this matchup as most teams have been able to run on the Bills so his status will be key.

UPDATES: Joe Mixon is Active. Linvall Joseph and Rasul Douglas are both active for the Bills after being acquired earlier this week.
