Struggling Bengals hit road to Indianapolis

Peyton Manning is 6-0 vs. the Bengals.

(Bill Nichols / Associated Press)

The storyline
The Bengals' lack of any pass rush and the sudden decline in their coverage skills should make for a fun time for Peyton Manning and his ever-growing legion of no-name receivers. The Bengals simply are not able, offensively, to win a shootout.

Why you should watch
Neither team can run the ball much, but the Bengals should allow Cedric Benson every opportunity to get back on track against a softer Colts front. Carson Palmer, in this loud dome, on this fast track, could be in for a painful day.

Did you know?
The Bengals are 15-3 when Carson Palmer has at least three touchdown passes in a game. ... Cincinnati's Terrell Owens has a touchdown reception in five consecutive games. ... The Colts have won five straight games at home against the Bengals. ... Indianapolis coach Jim Caldwell has a 10-1 record at home.
