I'll say this much: If the Bengals want to stay with the Broncos, they'll need to throw the ball. Granted, Carson Palmer hasn't been that good this season, but part of the blame falls on his receivers for dropping passes. OTOH, the Broncos have some injuries at cornerback and while I think Champ Bailey will keep Chad Johnson in check, those other receivers, thought not as good as Johnson, can slip through and make good catches.
The fact that Denver is likely to emphasize the running game, since the Bengals are not good at stopping the run, would mean not just the Broncos scoring often, but also the clock being chewed up because the running game tends to do that.
I don't think Elam will see as much action as people think either.
All that being said, I think while the Bengals will come out with some fire in their eyes, the Broncos will pull this one off by a pretty decisive margin.
Broncos 28, Bengals 13
