Bengals at Colts in AFC Playoff Matchup

The Indianapolis Colts shut out the Cincinnati Bengals 27-0 on October 19 in Indianapolis. The Colts are hoping to do it again at Lucas Oil Stadium in the first round of the AFC playoffs. The game is as 1:05pm on Sunday on CBS and features the Colts holding a -3.5 advantage. The Colts are hoping to get back into the Super Bowl while the Bengals are just hoping to win a playoff game for the first time since 1990.

The Colts won the AFC South with an 11-5 record and have won five of their last six games. Andrew Luck had a career season with 4,761 passing yards plus 40 touchdowns. T.Y. Hilton has been his top target with 1,345 yards but Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener have eight touchdowns as well.

Elsewhere, Ahmad Bradshaw has 725 combined yards and has six receiving touchdowns to go with his two rushing touchdowns. Adam Vinatieri is also 30-31 in field goals this year.

Wide receiver Reggie Wayne is listed as questionable for the game. He suffered a groin injury in the Colts' last game against Tennessee.

Cincinnati holds a 10-5-1 record and lost to Pittsburgh last week. They played two evening games in a row with the first being a victory against Denver. The Bengals are totaling 134 rushing yards per game this year. Jeremy Hill has 1,124 rushing yards with Giovani Bernard getting 680 yards to go alongside 349 receiving yards.

The Bengals do have some concerns on the passing side. Andy Dalton has 17 interceptions versus 19 touchdowns this season. Top receiving threat A.J. Green also missed three whole games and various parts of other games this year with assorted injuries but he still has 1,041 receiving yards. While he is listed as probable, he is being subjected to concussion review standards following an injury last week.

Cornerback Terence Newman is day to day with an ankle injury. Tight end Jermaine Gresham is also questionable with a back injury.
