The Bengals are in the playoffs for the fourth straight year. And, no, they didn't win any postseason matches in those three previous trips.
For the Bengals to defy history, they'll need to pressure Andrew Luck, who led the league with 40 touchdown passes. Luck torched the Bengals for 344 yards and two touchdowns in a 27-0 romp in October.
Plus, the Bengals don't have much of a pass rush, ranking 20th against the pass and managing a league-low 20 sacks. Indy is solid at protecting Luck.
The Colts have not shown much down the stretch. Their running game ranges from stagnant to nonexistent, which will allow Cincy to gear up for the air game. Their defense is inconsistent and they're not a great home team.
