NFL Preseason Preview - Indianapolis (2-1) at Cincinnati (2-1)



By John McMullen, NFL Editor

(Sports Network) - A pair of AFC playoff teams from a year ago finish up their preseason work in the Buckeye State on Thursday when the Cincinnati Bengals tangle with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Bengals fell for the first time in exhibition play this year on Saturday when Tony Romo threw for a pair of first half touchdowns as the Dallas Cowboys defeated Cincinnati 24-18.

Andy Dalton ended 12-of-16 for 113 yards, but threw an interception with the Cincinnati offense failing to score in the first half while accumulating only 101 total yards of offense.

Rookie Giovani Bernard rushed for 39 yards on six carries while A.J. Green had three receptions for 42 yards.

The Colts topped Ohio's other team last week when second-year star Andrew Luck went 16-for-25 for 164 yards and two touchdowns as Indianapolis defeated the Cleveland Browns, 27-6.

Luck also ran four times for 20 yards for the Colts. Seven of his completions went to Reggie Wayne, who finished with 79 yards.

Kerwynn Williams led the game in rushing with nine carries for 37 yards.
