COLTS STILL UNBEATEN
NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE
10 touchdowns a game !! Quarterback Peyton Manning leading six TDs gave Indianapolis Colts the 10th consective win over Cincinnati Bengals, 45-37. It was one of the most attractive game I've ever watched this season in which both QB, Mannig and Carson Palmer, sparked the best performances, being made exciting long passes.
It was the first time for me to watch Bengals' game. Cincinnati had been a doormat team for NFL long time. I wondered much that such a team met Colts with 2 times season MVP Mannig before the game.
QB Palmer was so aggressive for Bengals to perform a 68-yards pass made after Manning made 66-yards success in the 1st quarter. But Mannig was unstoppable. Every offence by Colts QB leaded to scoring and no punt through the game. Before ending 2Q, I was afraid how many points Tony Dungy's team accounted against Marvin Lewis's team at last.
Going into 3rd quarter, Indianapolis controlled the game, and moreover had confidence when they didn't waste time to play after Cincinnati failed a 4th-down gamble in 4Q. They was cool to deal with Bengals' on-side kick replay even after a penalty by themselves. Game Expert, the word existes for Colts. Who Stops them ?
