CINCINNATI (WXIX) - The suspended Bengals and Bills game will not be resumed this week, according to an NFL statement.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said no decision has been made if it will be played at a later date.

It would be very rare for the league to not make up the game as only two previous times in history have they canceled games and not rescheduled them. Both of those instances (1982 and 1987) were due to labor disputes.

The statement from the NFL says no changes have been made to the Week 18 schedule when Cincinnati plays the Baltimore Ravens. That game will begin at 1 p.m.

If the Bengals and Bills game were to be declared a no-contest, NFL Reporter Albert Breer laid out how the AFC playoff field would settle.
