Vontae Davis Blows Up Giovani Bernard of the Bengals


The struggles of the Cincinnati Bengals offense continued against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. It didn’t help matters that Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was hanging his receivers out to dry. On one play in the second quarter, cornerback Vontae Davis absolutely blew up Cincinnati Bengals running back Giovani Bernard. Dalton tried to complete a swing pass out of the backfield to Bernard. Unfortunately for Cincy, Davis anticipated the play and zeroed in for a big hit. The hit on Bernard left him visibly shaken and he looked like he suffered damage to his ribs. It was a great play, but we’re calling out Davis on copyright infringement. He stole his spear from WWE superstars including Goldberg and Edge. We mean look for yourself, their identical moves.

Dominating Win

The Vontae Davis big hit on Giovani Bernard punctuated the Indianapolis Colts (5-2) outstanding defensive performance. The Bengals only totaled 135 yards. The Bengals matched a franchise record with 11 punts and were shut out for the first time since the final regular-season game of the 2009 season. Indy has forced eight turnovers, recorded 16 sacks, and limited opponents to 18.8 points over the last four weeks. Against the Bengals, the positive defensive trends continued.

USA Today noted Dalton was sacked three times. Ten of Kevin Huber‘s punts followed three-and-outs. And when the Colts needed a fourth-quarter red-zone stop to preserve the shutout, they got that, too. The Bengals (3-2-1) ran just eight plays in Colts territory, had only eight first downs, and never had a chance after Dwayne Allen‘s brilliant 32-yard catch-and-run made it 17-0.

Andrew Luck, the Colts’ franchise quarterback didn’t have a bad day either. Luck finished 27 of 42 for 344 yards, his sixth 300 yard game of the season. T.Y. Hilton caught seven passes for 107 yards, his second straight 100-yard game. Reggie Wayne had four catches for 15 yards and became the ninth player to reach the 14,000-yard mark. Ahmad Bradshaw and Trent Richardson combined for 129 of the Colts’ season-high 171 yards rushing.
