What to Watch For: Colts vs. Bengals

4 of 4


While the Colts made the playoffs last year, it was without Pagano. Pagano is basically a rookie head coach and the Colts have been struggling without Wayne. Lewis, on the other hand, has had to deal with the loss of the best DT in the game, the team’s best CB (Hall) and yet the defense seems not to have lost a beat. Likabiliy: Pagano > Lewis. NFL Coaching Experience: Lewis > Pagano

Advantage: Bengals
Key to the Game:

Turnovers. It sounds like a cop-out, but the Bengals are better than the Colts in every aspect of the game. The way I see it, the Bengals should be able to win this game handedly…as long as Dalton does not turn the ball over, something that seems very difficult for Dalton of late.


If the Bengals want the 3 seed, they have to get this win. A victory would also keep them in the running for the 2 seed. I think the Bengals realize this sense of urgency and will ride the fans and the weather to victory.

Bengals 27, Colts 17
