INDIANAPOLIS (FOX19) -

After tying last week to Carolina, the Bengals came up empty against the Colts in Indianapolis, losing 27-0.

It was the first shutout for the Bengals since Jan. 3, 2010 when they were blanked by the New York Jets.

Despite coming up with two turnovers, the Bengals couldn't get anything going on offense.

The Bengals had 107 yards of offense, compared to Indianapolis' 506 total yards of offense. The offense had six first downs and was 1-of-13 on 3rd down efficiency.

Andy Dalton had 126 passing yards with zero interceptions, and was sacked twice for 12 yards.

With no A.J. Green, Mohamed Sanu led all receiving targets with three receptions for 54 yards on nine targets.

Giovani Bernard and Jeremy Hill combined for an abysmal 32 rushing yards.

Punter Kevin Huber had 11 punts for 558 yards in the game, and was one shy of a Bengals punting record for most punts in a game. 

Linebacker Vontaze Burfict left the game with a neck injury, after the game head coach Marvin Lewis said it was a "cervical strain."

Bengals return home next Sunday to play division rival Ravens.
