Closest prediction gets a free chicken dinner.
Score and how many yards will each quarterback throw for?
This is one of those very few games where I'm pretty much 100% certain of the outcome.
I think the Colts will take a big lead early and then slow it down. I say 35-13.
Peyton Manning 4 TDs 1 INT 378 yds
Carson Palmer 1 TD 2 INT 192 yds
* Cedric Benson 119 yds 2 TD
Back and forth game. I think the Bengals will have a pretty solid running game vs the Colts, but the Bengals D won't stand a chance vs Peyton. When TDs start turning into FGs, the Colts get ahead and Carson turns the ball over.
I may have some QB predictions tomorrow.
I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou
There's no reason for the Colts not to win this game, but I'm somewhat worried about it.
If the Colts get a lead early then the game will basically be over, but if the Bengals can put a couple long drives together early then it's anybody's game.
I'll go with 31-17 Colts. Peyton goes for 302 and Carson throws for 215.
Palmer 290 yards, mostly in garbage time
Manning 280 yards, mostly before the half
We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.
I expect Manning to abuse a Bengals defense that provides almost no pass rush.
The Bengals will try to run against the Colts but they will try to run outside instead of inside.
Palmers shoulder will be even more banged up after the beating he takes this week.
Colts 38, Bengals 20
Colts go up big early, Bengals do their usual work in garbage time
Manning - 347 yards, 3 TD, 0 sacks
Palmer - 232 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT, 3 sacks
Manning 286 yards
Palmer 287 yards
Bengals are just good enough to keep games close, bot good enough to win.

Already 10-0 Colts. Palmer has already thrown 2 awful passes
Now Benson fumbles the ball away. They are going to lose this game by 50 points
Colts 42, Bengals 13
Peyton: 328 yds
Palmer: 285, but only due to ample garbage time
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
What idiots are telling Lewis to challenge these plays?
