In the AFC Wild Card game on Sunday afternoon, the Cincinnati Bengals (10-5-1) will be taking on the Indianapolis Colts (11-5), who won five out of their last six regular season games. Cincinnati might not be looking forward to this game because the Colts beat them 27-0 in their Week 7 matchup.
The Bengals didn't have the best start to the season, but they lost just three out of their last 10 games to help them reach the playoffs. That had a chance to win the AFC North, but they lost their Week 16 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers by the score of 27-17.
During the season, no offense looked forward to facing the Bengals' defense, which barely gave up over 20 points per game this year. Running back Jeremy Hill has been one of the league's breakout players this season by rushing for 1,024 yards and nine touchdowns.
The Colts lost their first two games this season, but they didn't have a losing streak the rest of the way. They ended their year with an easy 27-10 victory over the Tennessee Titans on the road.
Indianapolis had the top passing game in the NFL this season while also finishing in the top 10 in scoring with over 28 points per game. Quarterback Andrew Luck has a 96.5 passer rating this season, while wide receiver T.Y. Hilton caught 82 of his passes for 1,345 yards and seven touchdowns.
