Here is a battle of a couple of playoff teams that should be hosting a couple of games in the first round. Even though both teams are at the top of their division, they have had a bit of struggles with different aspects of their games. The Bengals have struggled throwing the football with Andy Dalton. He just needs to throw it out to A.J. Green and he should come down with it, but he can’t get it anywhere near him at times. He is all over the place throwing that football.
The Colts have struggled finding a groove on offense because of all the injuries that they have had. Reggie Wayne went down and hurt the passing game and the running game has looked terrible with Trent Richardson running the football. They are going to use Donald Brown to pound the rock now. What a crap trade that is starting to look like for the Colts.
This game should be fun to watch. Despite the injuries, the teams have been fighting for their wins and find ways to get the victory. Who will squander out of this one with the win?
This game might end up being pretty ugly. The Bengals are going to rely on their defense to stop Andy Dalton and the Colts offense. I expect the Bengals defense to rattle the Colts on offense and force some short fields for the offense. Giovani Bernard could be a factor in the running game and could open it up a bit for A.J. Green and the passing attack. I expect the Bengals to pull this one off at home.
Bengals 23 – Colts 17
