Andy Dalton: Peyton Manning's 'One of the Best to Ever Play'


Andy Lyons/Getty Images(CINCINNATI) -- The Cincinnati Bengals will have to win to hold onto first place in the AFC North when they host the Denver Broncos on Monday night.

Denver (11-3) has already clinched their division, but is seeking home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has tossed 15 touchdowns and thrown for 3,008 yards and has the utmost respect for his counterpart.

"Growing up I was watching [Peyton Manning] play," Dalton said.  "It's fun to get to go against these guys, you definitely want to watch what they're doing and see how they play."

"He's a guy that's been one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game," Dalton continued.  "It's cool to get to play against a guy like that."

Manning and the Broncos are 4-3 on the road this year and would like to create some momentum as they head into the playoffs.

"This game means a lot to us, but it means a lot to them as well," Manning said.  "They're playing at home, Monday Night Football, it'll be a great atmosphere.  It's going to be rocking down there, both teams have a lot on the line."

Muhammad Ali Hospitalized with Mild Case of Pneumonia


Jay Reilly/Getty Images(LOUISVILLE, Ky.) -- Boxing legend Muhammad Ali was hospitalized with a mild case of pneumonia on Saturday night.

Doctors caught the pneumonia early enough for Ali to be in stable condition, family spokesman Bob Gunnell said.

"Muhammad Ali who suffers from Parkinson's Disease is being treated by his team of doctors and is in stable condition," Gunnel told ABC News Radio.

Gunnell would not release where Ali is being hospitalized and no other details are being released due to the Ali family's request for privacy.

"Because the pneumonia was caught early, his prognosis is good, with a short hospital stay expected," Gunnel continued.

Ali, 72, retired from boxing in 1981 and his last public appearance was at the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards in September.

Top-Ranked Kentucky Annihilates UCLA


Mitchell Layton/Getty Images(CHICAGO) -- Kentucky started off the game on a 24-0 run and never looked back as the top-ranked Wildcats annihilated UCLA 83-44 Saturday.

Eight Wildcats scored at least five points with freshman Devin Booker leading the way with 19.

"People can watch these guys in 20 minutes and know how really good they are," Kentucky head coach John Calipari said. "They don't need 40 minutes, and these kids are great. We're a really good team with a bunch of guys, 10 guys, that all could score double figures."

UCLA (8-4) had only seven points at halftime, the lowest its scored in a half in the past 15 seasons.

"If they continue to play at that level defensively, I'm a firm believer they got a chance to run this thing out," UCLA head coach Steve Alford said about Kentucky possibly going undefeated.

Next up for the Wildcats (12-0), a road game against in-state rival, No. 4 Louisville (10-0) Saturday.

Pats Rule Out Edelman and Blount for Sunday's Showdown with Jets


Jim Rogash/Getty Images(EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.) -- The New England Patriots (11-3) will be without leading receiver Julian Edelman and running back LeGarrette Blount for their important road game versus the New York Jets (3-11) Sunday, the team announced Saturday. 

Blount is dealing with a shoulder injury and was a limited participant in practice all week. Without Blount, the Pats should use more of Jonas Gray and Shane Vereen against a Jets' rush defense that ranks fourth in the NFL in yards allowed per game.

Meanwhile, Edelman, who was also limited in practice all week, is dealing with the affects of concussion he suffered within the last week.  

Edelman has played in all 14 games for the Patriots this season. During that time he has 92 catches for 972 yards and five touchdowns (one coming via a punt return).

The game is big for playoff seeding for New England. A win secures the Patriots a first-round bye in the playoffs. Also, a Pats win coupled with a Denver loss earns them the No. 1 seed in the AFC.

Eagles Playoff Chances Darkened After Getting Clipped by Skins


Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- Kai Forbath connected on a 26-yard game-winning field goal with five seconds to play as the Washington Redskins sunk the Philadelphia Eagles 27-24 Saturday.

The loss means the Eagles (9-6) can be eliminated from playoff contention Sunday if the Dallas Cowboys (10-4) beat the Indianapolis Colts.

Forbath's field goal was set up after the Redskins rookie cornerback Bashaud Breeland intercepted Mark Sanchez's pass with 1:31 to play. It was Sanchez's second turnover of the contest and 13th in seven games this season.

"We're currently minus-9 in the turnover margin, so us having nine wins is really impressive for that," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said. "And really we were on borrowed time playing that style of football. If we had run the table in December with that kind of football, it would have been surprising, and it's something we didn't fix."

Quarterback Robert Griffin III got the start for Washington (4-11) and completed 16 of 23 passes for 220 yards and an interception.

"We wanted to spoil their Christmas and send them home," Griffin said, "and we did our part."

Chiefs At Steelers Preview


Jason O. Watson/Getty Images(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) -- The Kansas City Chiefs still have a lot to play for with two games remaining in the season.

Kansas City (8-6) sits in the seventh spot in the AFC wild card behind the Ravens (9-5) and Steelers (9-5).

"He is a guy that doesn’t get rattled," Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton said of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. "He is one of those quarterbacks that just knows how to keep plays alive scrambling. He is not fast but he is deceivingly quick and just maneuvering and that’s what makes him great."

"I think you have to put him up there with one of the elite quarterbacks especially with the year he is having right now," Sutton continued. "He is just very efficient at what he does."

It's also an important game for the Steelers, who can clinch a playoff berth for the first time since 2011.

"We’re not looking at feelings," Steelers veteran linebacker James Harrison said. "We’re going to go out there and play each down and play each quarter and play each half and try to come out with enough good plays to get a ‘W'. We need to win this game. I’ll worry about anything else after we get through this next week."
