The Indianapolis Colts are still looking for their first win of the season. Will Andy Dalton and the Cincinnati Bengals be able to keep the Peyton Manning-less team the opposite of undefeated?
The Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals probably won't be a game chosen to be shown on many television screens Sunday afternoon, but those that don't tune in will be missing passing the chance to see Cincy possibly clinch its fourth victory of the season. If the Bengals win, which is certainly plausible, they will have won as many games through six weeks of this season as they did through sixteen weeks last season.
The Bengals are led by rookie quarterback Andy Dalton who has shown poise in leading Cincinnati to back-to-back fourth quarter comebacks in his team's last two games. His top receiving options have been fellow rookie A.J. Green and Jerome Simpson with veteran Cedric Benson carrying the rushing load.
The Colts' season has been known to be a disaster ever since Peyton Manning was ruled out for the foreseeable future with a neck injury. Even when Indy has been able to achieve double-digit leads, as they've done the past two weeks, Curtis Painter and the team hasn't been able to hold on for the win.
This game might not be pretty, but there's undoubtedly somebody that's going to be watching this after they were forced to start Dalton as their bye-week fantasy quarterback so hopefully it lives up to its low expectations.
