Colts Lead Cincinnati Bengals, 7-0, After First Quarter at Lucas Oil Stadium
INDIANAPOLIS – Among the Colts' goals this week was to improve offensively from last week.

Late in the first quarter, they took a step toward that.

The Colts, a week after failing to score an offensive touchdown in the regular season for the first time in more than five seasons, turned in a long first-quarter drive Sunday to not only score an offensive touchdown but take a 7-0 first-quarter lead over the Cincinnati Bengals at Lucas Oil Stadium Sunday afternoon.

The Colts took their 7-0 lead when running back Dominic Rhodes scored on a 17-yard run with 36 seconds remaining in the first quarter.

The play capped a nine-play, 79-yard drive.

The Bengals twice drove into Colts territory in the first quarter, with Colts cornerback Tim Jenning recovering a fumble by quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick to end the first drive, and with the defense forcing a punt to end the other.
