GAME RELEASE: Indianapolis Colts vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Posted Aug 26, 2013

Colts conclude preseason with Bengals on Thursday.

The Indianapolis Colts will hit the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals in the final preseason game on Thursday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Paul Brown Stadium.

This marks the 11th consecutive season that the Colts and Bengals have competed against each other in the preseason finale.

Last week, Indianapolis defeated the Cleveland Browns, 27-6. The Colts defense continued its strong play in the preseason, holding the Browns to just two field goals for the game. Over the past two preseason contests, the Colts have not allowed a single touchdown, as opposing teams have combined to go 0-for-5 in the red zone during that span. LB-Caesar Rayford posted 2.0 more sacks against the Browns to boost his league-leading preseason total to 5.0.

Offensively, WR-T.Y. Hilton caught a touchdown reception for the third-consecutive week, while FB-Stanley Havili posted his first touchdown of the preseason on a three-yard pass from QB-Andrew Luck. WR-Reggie Wayne led both teams in receiving with seven catches for 79 yards.

The Bengals are coming off their first loss of the preseason, falling 24-18 to the Dallas Cowboys. Through three games, QB-Andy Dalton has completed 24-of-37 passes for 265 yards, one touchdown and one interception. RB-Daniel Herron leads the team on the ground with 116 yards and a touchdown on 19 rushing attempts (6.1 avg.).
