Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has said that the team's pre-season target was to be victorious in every home game.
The Bengals are currently 5-0 at their Paul Brown Stadium this season, while an overall record of 8-4 means that they are well on course to make the playoffs for the third year running.
Dalton has stated that their home form is a key factor behind their strong campaign so far, and he is hopeful it will continue when the Indianapolis Colts visit on Sunday.
He told the team's official website: "Obviously it's easier to play at home. You're not having to worry about crowd noise and things like that. We've got to keep that up.
"The fans have done a really good job. They've given us that advantage. We really need to use that to our advantage. We've got three of the next four at home. One of our goals going into the season was to win every game at home."
Cincinnati won the last meeting between the sides during the 2011 regular season.
