5. Sack the Quarterback

This seems identical to the first point, but the first point is about hitting him as well. The Bengals defensive line are to get him on the ground as well. The Bengals have recorded 18 sacks in their last five games while only allowing 5.28 yards per pass attempt, an AFC best.

If the Bengals continue to sack Luck, this could certainly give them the advantage everywhere on the field. The Bengals, however, should not get greedy with blitzes due to the speed the Colts receivers have.
