NFL-SCHEDULE

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Peyton Manning is 8-0 in his career against Cincinnati. That doesn't bode well for the Bengals tonight when Manning and the Denver Broncos visit in the Monday Night Football game.

But the Broncos quarterback may not be 100 percent for this critical game for both teams. He's been bothered by the flu and a strained right thigh. That limited him in practice this week.

It's a pivotal game for both teams in the playoff picture. The 11-3 Broncos have already won the AFC West and would clinch a first-round bye with a victory at Paul Brown Stadium. They are also in the running for best record in the AFC and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

The 9-4-1 Bengals would earn a fourth straight trip to the playoffs with a win. Regardless of the outcome, Cincinnati will play the Steelers in Pittsburgh next week for the AFC North title.

NFL-BUCCANEERS-LIGHTNING STRIKE

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- A dozen people are recovering after they were injured by an indirect lightning strike at Raymond James Stadium after a game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Green Bay Packers.

Tampa Fire Rescue officials say the lightning strike happened Sunday afternoon as fans were walking back to their cars in one of the parking lots.

Rescue crews took seven people to the hospital. All were in stable condition when they left for St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa. Another four to five people told authorities they were going on their own to be checked out.

NBA-SCHEDULE

UNDATED (AP) -- Toronto visits Chicago in a battle of division leaders that highlights tonight's seven-game NBA schedule.

The Atlantic Division leading Raptors top the Eastern Conference with a 22-5 record that includes a six-game winning streak. The Bulls lead the Central Division but are only 5-5 at home this season. Chicago is hoping to have Derek Rose back in the lineup after the star guard missed the last two games with an illness.

The Hawks are on quite a run. Atlanta has won 12 of its last 13 to pull into a tie with Washington for first in the Southeast Division. The Hawks are on the road to take on the Mavericks and newly acquired guard Rajon Rondo.

Golden State has won 17 of 18 as it prepares to host Sacramento. The Warriors are 9-1 on their home court this season.

San Antonio is in an uncharacteristic slump heading into its home game against the Clippers. The Spurs have dropped four in a row and lost six of their last eight. In the Clippers, they'll be taking on a fifth straight opponent that would currently qualify for the playoffs.
