Jim Ayello from Indy Star Sports joins me to preview the Bengals’ matchup with the Indianapolis Colts.

We talk about:

  • Frank Reich’s hatred of tendencies
  • Philip Rivers’ Kryptonite?
  • The merits of running the ball on 2nd and Long
  • What’s up with the O-line?
  • What makes the Colts’ defense so good?
  • Former Vikings cornerbacks who don’t currently play for the Bengals
  • Should we fear that Joe Burrow could be the next Andrew Luck? (in a bad way)
