Winners and Losers From Cincinnati Bengals 34-14 Win Over Indianapolis Colts

Against the Colts, the Bengals’ running back put in another great game. Brown had a total of three receptions over 80 yards and a score. He also ran for 25 yards.

The young player is getting increasing playing time and is now an important part of the Bengals’ attack. On Monday night, Browning played really well against the Jaguars. He then played well again to beat the Colts.

On Sunday, Browning passed for 275 yards and two touchdowns. He looked very at ease in this system once more. He played very well, even though he threw an interception that was returned for a score before halftime.

Being in the thick of the NFL playoff race, the Bengals have a good chance of making it if Browning continues to play the way he is.

No points were scored by either team in the second half. The defense gave up 20 points during that time.

There is a young running back for the Bengals who is playing great right now, but Mixon is additionally performing great.

Even though Brown is a newbie, Mixon still had over 100 yards this week. The two of them seem to work really well together.

All three sentences said it wasn’t pretty during the game, especially in the second half. After the first half, the score was 14–14 for Indianapolis. However, in the second half, they lost by 20 points.

The offense for Indianapolis didn’t have a good day, but Pittman is still a solid player for them. Pittman had eight catches for 95 yards and also snagged the two-point conversion at the first half.

Pittman is now very close to 100 catches (95) and 1,000 yards of receiving (984), which are already more than he had in 2022.

But I want to talk about a unit that has gotten a lot of praise this year but let the team into against Cincinnati. The line of offense.

The offensive line had a hard time taking advantage of the Bengals’ bad defense, whether it was because they had another terrible day on the ground, didn’t cover Gardner Minshew, or got flagged for bad plays.

Bernhard Raimann had his worst game of the season because Trey Hendrickson beat him up all day.

This unit was simply not up to par, and it was a big reason why the team had so much trouble scoring.

Because Joe Burrow hurt his hand and can’t play this season, Browning has kept the Bengals (7-6) in the running for the playoffs.

Last Monday night, he threw for 354 yards in a win at Jacksonville. Against the Colts, he completed 18 of 24 passes over 275 yards and a pick.

Indianapolis (7-6) lost a game, ending a four-game win run. This hurts their chances of making the playoffs.

It took Gardner Minshew 240 yards to throw a score and an interception to beat the Colts. After halftime, their offense stopped moving.

When the half finished, the score was 14-14. But Indy’s first four possessions in the second half ended after two punts, a pick by Minshew, as well as a failed fourth-down attempt.

During the second half, the Bengals scored upon their first two plays. Tanner Hudson caught a touchdown pass from 11 yards out, and Browning kept the ball for 1 yard.

The Bengals’ first score came from a 54-yard touchdown catch by rookie quarterback Chase Brown.

Brown caught a short pass out from the backfield and ran down the right corner without stopping. He beat safety Rodney Thompson II on the 6-yard line and made it to the end zone.

After Matt Gay, the Colts’ kicker, missed a 38-yard field goal try, the Bengals scored once more.

Thanks to two penalties against Indianapolis, Cincinnati was able to go 72 yards and score on a 1-yard touchdown run by Joe Mixon.
