The Indianapolis colts and the Cincinnati Bengals square off in Week 4 of preseason. As usual, don't expect to see much of the starters as teams use this game as a final tune-up before the regular season.
The Indianapolis Colts will head East to Cincinnati for their final 2011 preseason game against the Bengals. The Colts will try to rebound from a last-second loss to Green Bay in Week 3 of the preseason that saw the Packers score 11 straight points within the final 40 seconds of the game. Indianapolis extended its preseason losing streak to nine games with the loss.
The Bengals fared better in their Week 3 matchup, beating Carolina 24-13 behind a nice performance by quarterback Andy Dalton. The rookie out of TCU went 11-for-17 passing for 130 yards and a touchdown, earning a cushy 107.5 QB rating. During the win, Dalton led the team on four first-half scoring drives, finding A.J. Green on a 40-yard bomb for a score in the second quarter.
