The Cincinnati Bengals and Buffalo Bills clash in a battle of heavyweights during Week 17's Monday Night Football finale. This game has all the makings of a blockbuster bash, featuring two of the best teams in football and a pair of superstar quarterbacks in Joe Burrow and Josh Allen.

Not only do both sides have limitless talent on both sides of the ball, but this game also holds serious playoff implications. Both clubs are jockeying for the No. 1 side after the Kansas City Chiefs notched their 13th win on Sunday, plus the Bengals will look to officially clinch the AFC North with a win.

That's already enough reason to call this one of the best primetime Monday Night Football showdowns in recent memory. But, NFL insider Adam Schefter revealed why this is statistically the greatest MNF matchup in league history.

Monday Night Football Week 17

With 11 wins for Cincinnati and 12 for Buffalo, their 23 combined wins are tied for the most in any MNF game ever. That equals the 23 total victories of the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos in Week 16 of the 1997 campaign.

In other words, you're not going to want to miss this. FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds show the Bills as slight 2.5-point road favorites and the game's over/under sits at an enticing 50.5 points, so expect plenty of fireworks tonight.
