I'll take the Bengals and 7. If they were playing in Indy, I'd give them 12.
Sure, maybe I am still thinking that this is the Bengals of old (it's a hard habit to shake after 13 years), but I think it is entirely realistic to say that this matchup is not even by any stretch. This is an improving ballclub, but they are not elite yet. The defense is still weak against the run, the offense has a tendency to respond poorly to good defensive play calling, but above all, with the exception of last week, the Colts have played enormously well this year. Their performance against Houston was not the same thing they will bring into Cincinnati. Look for the Colts defense to be the difference.
And by the way...This is NOT a prediction. Make up your mind, TeamSelig!
Colts win 24-14
Then again, I could see the Colts winning by a lot, and I could see the Bengals upsetting them as well. Should be a good game.
