The Indianapolis Colts (8-4) will hit the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals (8-4) on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 1 p.m. on CBS.
The Colts and Bengals are both currently leading their respective divisions. With a win, the Colts would clinch the AFC South Division title for the first time since the 2010 campaign. Indianapolis defeated the Tennessee Titans last week, 22-14, and improved its division record to 4-0 this season. The Colts recorded a season-high four takeaways, including a career-high two interceptions by cornerback Cassius Vaughn and one by inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman. Outside linebacker Robert Mathis also notched his 41st career sack-forced fumble and Freeman recovered the loose ball. Kicker Adam Vinatieri tied a career-high with five made field goals and registered his 16th career 100-point season, tying him with Jason Elam for the most in NFL history.
Cincinnati is coming off a 17-10 road win over the San Diego Chargers last week. The Bengals hold the NFL's sixth-ranked defense and the 12th-ranked offense. Wide receiver A.J. Green has caught 72 passes for 1,103 yards, both of which rank tied for fifth in the NFL this year. Quarterback Andy Dalton has completed 266-of-433 passes for 3,144 yards, 22 touchdowns and 16 interception.
