Tecmo Bowl Futures: Bengals Vs. Colts

You can go anywhere on the web and find what the experts think the outcome of any game will be. I have my own expert. She was born in 1991 and has had my heart ever since. Her name, Tecmo Super Bowl.

The final pre-season game, a time when most of the starters will be in street clothes after the half. Dalton may see some time on the field, but it is going to be limited. In Tecmo however, rosters are at full strength. Let's see how this game shakes out.

The Bengals start with the Giovani Bernard show. Jay Gruden calls the pitch around the left side of the line play about 10 times in a row with success. However, the drive stalls due to pressure from Jerrell Freeman and some inaccurate throws from Andy Dalton.

Mike Nugent finishes the drive with a field goal and the Bengals strike first.

On the Colts ensuing possession, a completed pass turns into an opportunity for the Bengals to create a turnover. Bengals get the ball with great field position. At the end of one, the Bengals lead 3-0.
