CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) – Rookie Jeremy Hill ran for 90 yards and was Cincinnati’s top receiver, and former Buckeye Dane Sanzenbacher returned a punt to the end zone as the Bengals beat the Indianapolis Colts 35-7 on Thursday night.

The game was the preseason finale for both teams and devoid of starters.

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck sat it out, as did most of the starters for both teams. Dalton didn’t even pull up his black socks, leaving them around his ankles on an 85-degree evening — he knew there was no point.

Cincinnati (2-2) pulled off several big plays in the second half against the Colts (0-4) backups.

Sanzenbacher ran a punt back 77 yards for a touchdown. Safety Danieal Manning intercepted Chandler Harnish’s pass and ran it back 33 yards for a score. Cobi Hamilton turned a short catch into a 50-yard TD.

Hill, a second-round pick who backs up Giovani Bernard, carried 20 times and caught six passes for 70 yards.
