Colts vs. Bengals preseason 2015: Game time, TV schedule, online streaming, and more

Here's everything you need to know about the Indianapolis Colts' upcoming preseason game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

The 2015 NFL preseason is almost over, but before it officially ends there's one more game that needs to be played.  Every team will play the fourth preseason game on Thursday night, and it is the most meaningless of all preseason games, as most starters don't even play.

It is also the time for the Indianapolis Colts and the Cincinnati Bengals to continue their annual tradition of facing off in the final preseason game.  It will be the 15th consecutive season that the two teams have met in the preseason and the 22nd time in the last 23 years.  The Bengals hold a 15-8 record over the Colts in the preseason and have won 9 of the past 11, but that doesn't really mean anything at all.  When it comes to the regular season and the playoffs, the Colts lead the Bengals 19-10 all-time.

The Colts will open the regular season on Sunday, September 13 in Buffalo against the Bills, but first they will need to cut their roster down to 53 players.  The dealing for that cutdown is on Saturday, September 5, at 4:00 p.m. ET.  This fourth preseason game is very much for those players on the bubble to make one last impression.

If you're desperate enough for Colts football that you want to watch Matt Hasselbeck and Bryan Bennett play quarterback all night, you've come to the right place, as we have all the information you need in advance of the game.
