Week 4 of the preseason is here and that means all the players fighting for a roster spot have one final chance to make the cut.
This game will see the Indianapolis Colts take on the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Colts probably got the worst news of the entire preseason as their franchise quarterback, Andrew Luck, announced recently that he would be retiring from football. This was a sad day for all football fans as Luck was such a good player but was just plagued with injuries. That leaves Jacoby Brissett to take over under center. He is obviously a downgrade from Luck, but still can be a serviceable starter for this team.
The Colts lost last week to the Chicago Bears to remain winless in the preseason. I expect for not many starters to play as some are still recovering from injuries. Chad Kelly should be the guy under center and will likely be playing for the backup role. Kelly had 209 yards last week with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. He went 16 for 21.
The defense just became a lot more important now that Luck is no longer on the team. They held the Bears to just 245 total yards last week, so that is a promising sign of things to expect. This week should be similar as the Bengals do not exactly have a great offense. I look for the defense to dominate and put the Colts in a position to win.
The Bengals lost last week to the New York Giants and will look to at least go .500 in the preseason here.
The Bengals showed encouraging signs on offense as they totaled 354 yards. Andy had a productive outing, going 7 of 10 for 104 yards and a touchdown. Ryan Finley was the top passer as he went 14 for 20 with 155 yards, but no touchdowns.
The biggest problem the Bengals had was running the ball. They ended last game with 16 carries for 29 total yards. This is very worrying because they are not a team that will survive by only relying on the passing game.
The defense allowed 323 yards last week, which is another worrisome sign. They also allowed a special teams touchdown put the Giants in the lead for good. In the final week of the preseason, the Bengals need to focus on slowing down the passing game.

This game means nothing, but I think the Colts will come out hungry after seeing their quarterback retire. I like the Colts on the road to get a win.
