Tecmo Bowl Futures - Colts Vs. Bengals

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.

It may or may not be the frozen tundra this Sunday when the Colts come to town to take on the Bengals. In Tecmo world, it is always a sunny 70 degrees. This week I simulate the matchup of the Indinapolis Colts against the Cincinnati Bengals. Let's see what Tecmo thinks the outcome will be.

Darrius Heyward Bey fumbles the ball on the Colts first possession, but he recovers his own fumble and runs it in for the score.
