Fort Wayne natives Jessie Bates III and Tyler Eifert helped lead the Cincinnati Bengals to a 34-23 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Bates, a Snider High School alum, made his NFL debut with eight tackles as Cincy's starting free safety. Eifert, a Bishop Dwenger grad, recorded three catches for 44 yards in his first game back since suffering a back injury last September. FOX 55 was in Indy to catch up with the former Summit City stars after the win.
