CINCINNATI (AP) — When Andy Dalton is on the sideline Monday night, he’ll make sure to steal a few glances at the field to check out his counterpart.
Who doesn’t want to watch Peyton Manning do his thing in prime time?
“Yeah, growing up I was watching Peyton play, so it’s fun to be able to go up against these guys,” Dalton said. “You definitely want to watch what they’re doing, see how they play, because he’s a guy that has been one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game.”

The quarterbacks will get a lot of the attention — Manning for his perfect career mark against Cincinnati, Dalton for his penchant to melt down in big games — when the Broncos play the Bengals on Monday night. But it’ll be the running backs who are on the spot in a game between teams trying to set themselves up for deep playoff runs.
If the Broncos (11-3) and Bengals (9-4-1) get their way, it’ll be C.J. Anderson and Jeremy Hill getting most of the attention.
