Game Release: Bengals at Colts

Colts host Bengals in Week 7 matchup





The Indianapolis Colts (4-2) will go for their fifth straight victory of the year when they host the Cincinnati Bengals (3-1-1) on Sunday. Kickoff at Lucas Oil Stadium is set for 1 p.m. on CBS.

The matchup will feature two division leaders, as the Bengals pace the AFC North. It will also feature two top five offenses, with Indianapolis ranked No. 1 and Cincinnati No. 5 in the NFL in yards per game.

The Colts hold a 16-10 all-time record against the Bengals in the regular season but have lost the last two contests. In Week 14 last season, Indianapolis fell to Cincinnati, 42-28, at Paul Brown Stadium.

Last week, the Colts claimed their fourth consecutive victory of the season after defeating the Houston Texans, 33-28. It marked the team's 10th straight win over AFC South opponents and placed Indianapolis in sole possession of first place in the division. Wide receiver T.Y. Hilton posted his first 200-yard receiving performance in the regular season (second overall) and was two yards shy of a franchise single-game record. Punter Pat McAfee and the special teams unit recovered their league-leading third onside kick of the year, which is the most for the team since 1997.

Cincinnati and Carolina drew the NFL's first tie of the season last week, battling to a score of 37-37 in overtime. Quarterback Andy Dalton completed 33-of-43 passes for 323 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions for a 93.5 passer rating. Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu recorded career highs of 10 catches for 120 yards, while adding a touchdown.
