The Indianapolis Colts head to Paul Brown Stadium to take the field with the Cincinnati Bengals Thursday.
The Indianapolis Colts fell to 0-3 in the preseason following a 23-17 loss to the visiting New Orleans Saints. The defense struggled to stop Drew Brees and company with the star quarterback throwing for 128 yards and a pair of touchdowns in leading the Saints to a 20-10 edge at the half. The defense didn't tighten up until after the break which turned out to be too late. The Colots totaled nearly 350 yards with Andrew Luck throwing forn103 yards with a touchdown and interception while Matt Hasselbeck and Chandler Harnish combined for 102 yards with a pick and TD respectively. Indy did run the ball well at times with 162 yards but three turnovers and an 0-2 mark in the redzone were killers.

The Cincinnati Bengals picked up their first win of the preseason in a 19-13 road victory over the Arizona Cardinals. This one belonged to the defense as this unit held the Cardinals to less then 300 yards and recorded a pair of interceptions including Terence Newman's 54 yard pick six for a 7-0 lead. The Cardinals were also 0-2 in the red zone as the Bengals defense played their best gae of the preseason. Quarterback Andy Dalton was solid with 157 yards on a 13-21 performance with the rushing attack producing some decent numbers as well. The Bengals totaled 122 yards on the ground with Cedric Peerman ripping off a 37 yard run while Jeremy Hill ground out 48 yards on 12 carries.
I'm not sure how much emphasis Indianapolis is putting on the preseason and my thoughts are the same with Cincinnati as neither squad has done a whole lot. Probably not much going on here in the final game so caution is the word here. Still waiting for a line so please check back...
