(FootballStL) – It will be a rare CBS telecast of the St. Louis Rams followed by “Tebow-mania” on KMOV-TV (channel 4) on Sunday.
The first game of the doubleheader set for Sunday will pin the Cincinnati Bengals (7-6) against the St. Louis Rams (2-11) at noon.
Although the Rams will likely be without quarterback Sam Bradford, the Bengals will showcase their sensational rookie-combo of quarterback Andy Dalton and wide receiver A.J. Green.
It is only the twelfth time the two teams have played each other and the first time since 2007 when the Bengals beat the Rams 19-10 in Cincinnati.
The second game of the doubleheader will feature the high-flying New England Patriots (10-3) offense and the surging Denver Broncos (8-5) at 3 p.m.
The Broncos are currently riding on a high thanks to the emergence of quarterback Tim Tebow and a six-game winning streak that has catapulted the team into the playoff picture.
