This is a huge game for the Bengals. They've showed flashes of brilliance in their two losses, but just weren't able to stay focused for the whole 60 minutes. They played scared for the first half against Jacksonville, but finished strong. Against Pittsburgh, they started like gangbusters, but lost momentum after an early overturned touchdown and missed FG.
The Colts have been experts at mentally demolishing their opponents. If Marvin Lewis can somehow inspire his team to execute like they are capable of doing, it will be a testament to his brilliance.
