-Bengals outside linebacker Dontay Moch leads the NFL with 3.5 sacks through three games of the preseason. Colts linebacker Jerry Hughes is right on his heels with 3.0 sacks.

-The Colts and Bengals is the closest geographical matchup among cities in the AFC at 110 miles. The Browns and Steelers come second at 137 miles.

-The Colts and Bengals have met in the preseason in 20 of the 21 past seasons.

-Former Colts defensive end Jamaal Anderson (2011) is now with the Bengals.

-Colts general manager Ryan Grigson was drafted by the Bengals in 1995.

-Colts offensive guard Mike McGlynn (2011), cornerback Korey Lindsey (2011) and defensive tackle Jason Shirley (2008-2011) all spent time with the Bengals.
