The Indianapolis Colts and Cincinnati Bengals share not only an 8-4 record but have the distinction of each leading their respective divisions entering the final quarter of the 2013 NFL season. Today the Colts can clinch the AFC South with a week 14 win when we watch Colts vs Bengals online free live streaming on CBS Sports by following the links offered below.
Andrew Luck has been struggling for the Colts as a banged up offensive line hasn’t given him the protection he became accustomed to last season during his rookie campaign. Over the past four games, Luck has only two touchdown passes against five interceptions and a quarterback passer rating of 66.7. Last week Luck was sacked five times in their win over the Titans, and overall he has been sacked 29 times this seasons.
The offensive line for the Colts is banged up and suffered another blow last week. Right guard Jeff Linkenbach partially tore his quad and is currently listed as week to week, meaning the odds are probably he will not be playing today. Linkenbach was filling in for Mike McGlynn, who is out with a broken thumb that was sustained back during a November 10 loss to the Rams. It doesn’t help that the Bengals have recorded 18 sacks over their past five games.
The Colts also have issues with their running game that has been putting up small numbers all season long. Donald Brown is expected to get the start at running back today after he started last week and ran for 54 yards. Sadly in the Colts offense right now 54 yards is a decent running game, and Brown was responsible for a late score last week. Watch Bengals vs Colts online live free streaming on CBS Sports today to see if the Colts can get their running game going against a tough defense.
The Bengals are one of a few teams left in the NFL without a rushing performance by a single player over 100 yards. However, they have been successful on the ground using a one-two punch of BenJarvus Green-Ellis and rookie Giovani Bernard. Last week Green-Ellis ran for 92 yards, his best performance of the season, and Bernard tacked on 57 yards in a win over the Chargers.
The way Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has been playing of late might require a strong rushing attack. Dalton has six interceptions and nine touchdowns over his past four games, good enough for only a 59.8 passer rating. Last week he wasn’t much better with 190 yards passing with a touchdown and an interception. Look for Dalton to try and get the ball to A.J. Green early and often today.
