CINCINNATI - After a couple of subpar games, Peyton Manning has a perfect chance to regain his touch and get ready for the playoffs.And earn some time off, too.Its his pedigree. Whenever he plays Cincinnati, he becomes Perfect Peyton.Manning takes an 8-0 mark against the Bengals into their Monday night game at Paul Brown Stadium, where he won as recently as two years ago. And its not just how often hes won, but how hes done it.Manning has thrown 20 touchdown passes and only five interceptions against Cincinnati (9-4-1). Hes thrown at least three touchdown passes in five of the eight games. His career passer rating against the Bengals is 106.8.Yep. Hes basically owned the Bengals. And a few other teams, too.Hes one of those guys thats been around it his whole life and breathed it, ate it and slept it, Bengals defensive end Wallace Gilberry said. So youre getting the best.The Broncos (11-3) have handled the Bengals regardless who was the quarterback, winning the past four in their series. And theyll have them right where they want them this time: Playing in prime time.Cincinnati has played its worst games under the brightest lights. Theyve lost in the first round of the playoffs each of the past three seasons. Theyre 18-41 all-time in night games, including 10-20 on Monday night.Two of the Bengals worst games this season have come in prime time, a 43-17 loss at New England on a Sunday night and a 24-3 loss at home to Cleveland on a Thursday night.It doesnt matter what weve done in the past, its what were going to do on Monday night and thats our focus, said Andy Dalton, who is 2-6 in prime time games.Some things to watch on Monday night:PLAYOFF SEEDING: The Broncos have clinched the AFC West for the fourth straight season. A win on Monday would secure a first-round bye. They finish the regular season at home against Oakland. The Bengals would clinch a fourth straight playoff berth with a victory. They finish the season in Pittsburgh.BRONCOS RUN IT: The Broncos have put more of an emphasis on their running game in the past few weeks, using C.J. Anderson and Juwan Thompson to take some of the load off Manning. Anderson had 709 yards from scrimmage in November, the most by any NFL player in the month. He ran for 167 and 168 yards in back-to-back games.DENVERS DENTED Defence: The Broncos will be without top tackler Brandon Marshall, sidelined by a foot injury. Linebacker Danny Trevathan went on injured reserve with a knee injury, forcing the Broncos to rely on undrafted third-year pro Steven Johnson and newcomer Todd Davis, claimed off waivers from New Orleans a month ago.Weve faced a lot of adversity, nose tackle Terrance Knighton said. We faced a lot of adversity last year and still made a Super Bowl. We have a lot of depth.GOOD ANDY/BAD ANDY: How will Dalton handle the spotlight? During the Thursday night loss to Cleveland, he completed only 10 passes, threw three interceptions and finished with a career-low passer rating of 2.0. Hes played poorly in all three playoff games as well, turning the ball over with interceptions and fumbles. How well he handles the pressure will be one of the determining factors.HAND IT TO HILL: The Bengals would love to let rookie Jeremy Hill take the lead and take the pressure off Dalton. He ran for 148 yards in a 30-0 win at Cleveland last week, making him the first rookie since Tampa Bays Cadillac Williams in 2005 to have three games of rushing for more than 140 yards. Hill leads all NFL rookies with 877 yards rushing and is tied for the lead with eight touchdowns.___AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Stapleton in Denver contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Andre Johnson Jersey .

It took five games, but the Celtics finally helped Stevens earn his first NBA victory. "Im going to celebrate for a whole 12 minutes, and then Im going to start watching Orlando and trying to figure them out," the first-year Celtics coach said after Boston beat the Utah Jazz, one of the leagues other winless teams, 97-87 on Wednesday night.Texas Rangers left-hander Derek Holland will miss the start of the season after having arthroscopic surgery Friday on his left knee. Holland injured his knee in a fall on stairs in his home on Tuesday. "I am devastated by this injury. It was a freak accident at home that resulted in a hard fall on my knee," Holland said in a statement released by the team. "As upsetting as this is, my goal is to begin rehab and get back on the mound as quickly as possible." General manager Jon Daniels said team physician Dr. Keith Meister repaired cartilage behind Hollands kneecap during the surgery. Daniels said no ligaments needed to be repaired. Daniels said it was too early to have an exact timetable for Hollands return, but is that the 27-year-old lefty is "expected to miss some time into the year." Daniels said for planning purposes, the Rangers are looking at a midseason return, but are hopeful that it can be earlier than that. The Rangers said Holland will have only limited activity over the next six weeks. Holland was 10-9 with a 3.42 ERA in a team-high 33 starts last season. He pitched a career-high 213 innings. In five major league seasons with the Rangers, Holland is 49-38 in 141 games (123 starts). He is under contract through 2016, with club options for two more years afteer that.dddddddddddd Without Holland, the Rangers still appear to have Yu Darvish, Matt Harrison, Martin Perez and Alexi Ogando set for the rotation to start the season. Asked about filling Hollands spot, Daniels said he expected to add some pitching depth, but clarified that would be "more in the depth category than really replacing somebody at the front-end of our rotation." Daniels never specifically mentioned Masahiro Tanaka, the Japanese free agent who was 24-0 with a 1.27 ERA in 27 starts last season. But the GM said it didnt seem realistic that a "big-ticket item" would be the answer. "This is an opportunity for a number of our guys," Daniels said. "Were going to go out and hopefully fortify that group and give ourselves some additional options and expect Derek will be back midyear." Daniels, though, has said previously when asked about Tanaka that the team would do its due diligence with any free agent. After the Rangers signed outfielder Shin-Soo Choo to a $130 million, seven-year contract last month, team co-owner Bob Simpson said adding Tanaka "would be a tough thing." The Rangers payroll is expected to be over $130 million this season, more than double what it was when the ownership group took over nearly 3 1/2 years ago.
