But the German believes there is still plenty for the fourth placed Reds to play for and they should not get complacent just because City are so far ahead.

While Osweiler becomes a free agent at season's end and figures to land elsewhere, Lynch and Trevor Siemian will probably be at Broncos training camp next summer.
