Bengals can’t overcome injuries, Indianapolis Colts will go on to face the Denver Broncos in AFC Divisional Round

Standard

In the third game of Wildcard Weekend, the Bengals offense couldn’t overcome injuries to sidelined starters in A.J. Green and Jermaine Gresham. Cincinnati was only able to score once, which was on a 1-yard goal line rush by running back Jeremy Hill in the first quarter.

The Colts offense looked sloppy at times with drops by T.Y. Hilton and multiple fumbles by Daniel “Boom” Herron, but Andrew Luck continued to make plays and find open receivers leading to him to pass for 376 yards and a touchdown. Despite the turnovers, Herron also contributed heavily in the victory, rushing 12 times for 54 yards and adding 10 receptions for 85 yards in the passing game.

The Colts will go on to face the Denver Broncos next Sunday (1/11) with a schedule start time of 4:40pm EST airing on CBS.
