It's Gameday for the Colts and the Bengals!

After a (long) week of waiting, game day is finally here, as the Indianapolis Colts and the Cincinnati Bengals face off in the Wild Card round of the NFL playoffs.

We've been waiting all week, but game day is finally here.  In just under four hours, the Indianapolis Colts and the Cincinnati Bengals will kick off to begin their Wild Card matchup, with the winner advancing to play the Denver Broncos and the loser going home for the offseason.

For the Colts, they defeated the Bengals 27-0 the previous time these two teams played (in October), but it's expected to be much different this time around - starting with the Bengals' run game led by Jeremy Hill.  Indy won their home Wild Card game last year in dramatic fashion as they came back from a massive deficit to defeat the Chiefs, but the Bengals are still looking for their first playoff win since 1990.

It's a game with a lot of story lines, but one that we can all agree can't come fast enough.  Playoff football has returned to Indianapolis, and we're nearing game time.  What are you looking for today?  What are you excited to watch?  What are your predictions for the game?  You can use this thread to discuss those topics and more as we move closer and closer to kickoff.
