Indianapolis, IN - Peyton Manning threw for 185 yards, and the Indianapolis defense produced five turnovers in a 23-17 decision over Cincinnati at Lucas Oil Field.

Manning completed 20-of-36 throws without a touchdown or an interception, seven of which went to tight end Jacob Tamme for 73 yards for the Colts (6-3), who bounced back from a loss at Philadelphia last week to win for a fourth time in their last five games.

Adam Vinatieri kicked three field goals in the victory for Indianapolis, which turned three of its forced turnovers into 17 points.

Carson Palmer connected on 31-of-42 throws for 287 yards and two scores but was intercepted three times for the Bengals (2-7), who have dropped six in a row since winning back-to-back games September 19-26.

Jermaine Gresham caught nine passes for 80 yards -- both career-highs -- and a touchdown, while Chad Ochocinco hauled in seven passes for 86 yards and a score, his franchise-best 65th receiving TD.
