The Bengals jumped on top of the Colts right away when Marvin Jones came up with a diving catch in the end zone, his first TD since week 8. It was a 29-yard pass from Andy Dalton for a 7-0 lead.
The Cincinnati defense dominated the first half, holding Indy to 0-for-6 on 3rd down conversions and 117 total yards. Adam Vinatieri missed a 43-yard FG in the 2nd quarter for the Colts' best scoring chance.
With just over a minute left in the half, the Bengals went for it on 4th down and goal. BenJarvus Green-Ellis was ruled down at the one-yard line. However, after a review, the call was reversed and the Bengals were given a TD for a 14-0 lead.
The Bengals started the 2nd half with a 9-play drive that covered 80 yards. It was capped with another Green-Ellis score, this one from a yard out.
However, Indianapolis answered with a pair of touchdowns through the air. Andrew Luck hit Da'Rick Rogers, who slipped through two tackles and ran for a 69-yard score. On the Colts ensuing possession, Luck hit LaVon Brazill, and the WR shrugged off six tackles for a 19-yard TD that cut the lead to just 7.
regained control thanks to a TD drive capped by Dalton's 1-yd pass to Jermaine Gresham. That made it 28-14 after three.
Less than 2 minutes into the 4th quarter, Dalton hooked up with AJ Green on a 9-yard connection for a 35-14 lead. That was Dalton's third TD toss of the game.
The 21-point deficit was trimmed to 14 after Luck and Brazill teamed up for a second score. This one covered 29 yards to make it 35-21 with 9:48 left. That was Luck's third scoring pass.
The Bengals once again used a ground-control offensive game plan and asserted dominance at the line of scrimmage. Green-Ellis ran for 48 yards and those scores, while Gio Bernard was one yard short of 100. Dalton scrambled 8 yards for the 42-21 lead with just over 4 minutes remaining.
Luck became just the 2nd QB this season to top 300 passing yards against the Bengals (Stafford was other) on a drive that culminated with another TD toss to Rogers in the final minutes.
