It's game day!!! The Indianapolis Colts will host the Cincinnati Bengals today in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs. This is what all teams work towards and play for in the regular season - a chance to play in the playoffs, and both the Colts and the Bengals have that opportunity today. The winner goes to Denver to face Peyton Manning and the Broncos next week, but first there's a tough matchup to be played today. The last time the Colts played the Bengals, Indy won 27-0 in October. But this game will be totally different. Here's all of your need-to-know information for the game, and consider this your open thread for the game.
