The Bengals (7-6) are a team in desperate need of consistency. Just when they seem to have figured it out by winning two-in-a-row, the drop their next game. Throughout the season, they haven't been able to put more than two wins together. Conversely, they also haven't lost more than two-in-a-row all year. 

With that pattern in mind, the Bengals should expect a couple of wins in their near future. They are coming off back-to-back losses to the Chargers and 49ers. Last week, they came back from a 20-3 third quarter deficit to tie the score at 20 and force overtime. They would get a field goal on the first possession to take a 23-20 lead, but the Niners bounced back with a walk-off touchdown by Brandon Aiyuk, handing the Bengals a 26-23 loss. 

The Broncos (7-6) are coming off a 38-10 win over the Lions last week. A game that saw running backs Melvin Gordan and Javonte Williams record 194 total yards while combining for four touchdowns.

Going into this week there are five AFC teams with 7-6 records. The Bills currently occupy the seventh and final playoff spot in the conference. The Browns who are 8th and hold tiebreakers over the Bengals and Broncos. 

The Broncos are 3-point favorites against the Bengals. The over/under is 44.

Bengals vs Broncos live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Bengals vs Broncos live stream is going to be broadcast on CBS, which is available with most cable packages and on one of our favorite streaming services: fuboTV

The game starts at 4:05 p.m. ET / 1:05 p.m. PT today (Dec. 19)

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.
