Colts vs. Bengals: Second Half Open Thread

Here's your open thread for the second half of the Wild Card game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Colts thoroughly outplayed the Bengals in the first half of the Wild Card game in Indianapolis.  Yet the Colts go into halftime leading just 13-10 after a series of miscues stalled the Colts' offense.

Andrew Luck played phenomenal in the first half, completing 16 of 27 passes for 219 yards, but his receivers dropped several passes (ahem, T.Y. Hilton), his teammates committed penalties (ahem, Dwayne Allen), and his teammates turned the football over (ahem, Boom Herron).

Hilton still caught 4 passes for 80 yards in the first half, Herron still gained 95 total yards and a touchdown, and the offensive line looked very good, but there's no way around the fact that the Colts should be up more than they are.  The Bengals should feel great about their position right now, as they're down just three points and get the ball to start the second half.  The Colts, however, shouldn't be feeling that good, however, as they should be up more.

Here's your open thread for the second half of this game, as the Colts lead 13-10.
