1. Frustrate Luck

Both Andrew Luck and Andy Dalton had a fantastic beginning of the season, since week 9, both quarterbacks have struggled immensely. Combined, they have only 11 touchdowns to 14 interceptions. The way to make Luck struggle is to pressure him.

With his offensive line struggling, expect the Bengals to blitz him often with a lot of man coverage.Since Reggie Wayne has been injured, the Colts receivers have not been able to pick up the slack. The Bengals would be wise to get Luck off his rhythm early and often.
