Dalton sharp as Bengals top Colts to cap preseason

CINCINNATI -- Andy Dalton led the Bengals to a touchdown in his only drive, and Josh Johnson threw for another in his bid to win the backup quarterback job Thursday as Cincinnati ended the preseason with a 27-10 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

The Bengals (3-1) played most of their starters on offense and defense for only one series. Dalton's brief appearance ended in Giovani Bernard's 1-yard touchdown run.

The Colts (2-2) rested most of their starters, including quarterback Andrew Luck. He and Dalton joked with each other on the field before the game.

Matt Hasselbeck started for Indianapolis and led a 12-play drive to a field goal against most of the Cincinnati starters.

The Bengals' starters moved the ball easily against a Colts defense of mostly backups during their one series.
