The Bengals (10-5-1) are looking to erase their disastrous past playoff performances with a win against the AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts (11-5).
Although these 2 teams have almost identical records, they are not as evenly matched as they seem.
The Colts have the best passing offense in the league while the Bengals have struggled against the pass, making this a mismatch from the start.
The Bengals will also be playing without WR A.J. Green, who suffered a concussion last week.
This severely limits their offensive options and takes away from what has been a pretty effective rushing game for them.
If that wasn’t enough, you also have to consider that Colts QB Andrew Luck is among one of the best in the league and playing at home- making this no contest.
Colts win: 31-20.
