As the NFL preseason finally comes to a close, teams are trying to decide who will make the final team. In the game between the Bengals and Colts, both teams have to answer more questions—mainly if their quarterbacks can handle the situation they have been thrust into.
The Colts go into the regular season with some doubt in Peyton Manning's health. While Manning is getting healthy, the team prepares for its Week 1 matchup with the Houston Texans. The Colts go into this season looking as vulnerable as they ever have with Manning at the helm.
