The Colts and Bengals face off in week 8.
Indianapolis is looking to snap their two games loosing streak on the road in Cincinnati. The Colts are 2-5 this year.
The Cincinnati Bengals are struggling as well. Recently losing to the Steelers, 29-14 in Pittsburgh.
Last time the Colts and Bengals were on the same field, was the AFC Divisional Playoff in 2014. The Colts got the win, 26-10.
The Indianapolis Colts are a struggling team this season. At 2-5 overall and 0-3 in AFC South games. Indianapolis needs wins.
A lot of the reason the Colts are three games under .500, is because of the starting quarterback issues.
All Pro quarterback Andrew Luck has been out all season. The Colts were hopeful he could return to action soon, but has been held out of all throwing drills due to a setback in his rehab process.
Now it looks like the Colts will be leaning heavily on Jacoby Brissett. Brissett has been the starter since week one for Indianapolis, and should plan on it the rest of the year.
Brissett has not played bad this season. He has 1409 yards passing with three touchdowns, and three interceptions on the year.
The Defense has not played well either for the Colts. The unit is allowing over 375 yards of total offense per game this season. The secondary has been especially bad. Allowing 311 yards per game.
The run defense has also been absent. The Colts are allowing 124 yards on the ground per game.
If the Colts can’t get to Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton early, expect a big day from Dalton and talented wide receiver A.J. Green. The tandem can give secondary’s fits.
The Cincinnati Bengals were embarrassed on the road last week in Pittsburgh. The Bengals offense looked terrible in the second half. Not scoring a point. Cincinnati started out hot, scoring 14 in the first half.
The Bengals offense was shut down. Dalton and the crew only gained 179 total yards in the loss. Dalton was 17 of 30 passing for 140 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
A.J. Green was almost non exsistant. He finished with three catches for 41 yards and no touchdowns.
Running back Joe Mixon was productive with seven rushes for 48 yards, but his carries were limited.
On defense, the Bengals have played well this year, but looked bad against the Steelers last week. They allowed 420 yards of offense. Cincinnati only allows 307 yards per game this season.
The Bengals defense should be ready for this game. After getting embarrassed on the road last week, they should be able to contain the Colts at home.
