Updated Score: Bengals 27, Colts 17

 Today, the Indianapolis Colts head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals.

As the 2012 NFL season has worn on, the Colts and the Bengals have gone in opposite directions. The winless Colts have been unable to find success without their long-time signal caller, Peyton Manning. The Bengals, missing Carson Palmer for the first time in years, have found new life with rookie Andy Dalton.

The Colts will look to apply plenty of pressure with their defense, especially defensive ends Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney. Linebacker, Pat Angerer has been key for the Colts defense this season and will look to shut down Cedric Benson in the middle.

The 3-2 Bengals will look to keep pace in the AFC North by minimizing mistakes from Dalton and taking advantage of their newest offensive weapon, first-round pick A.J. Green.
