Andy Dalton completed 14-of-29 passes for 141 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Bengals' Week 14 loss to the Bears.
He was pulled for A.J. McCarron with 4:30 left and the Bengals trailing 33-7 in a game where their defense got leveled by the Bears' running game. Cincinnati's pass catchers struggled to get open against Chicago's underrated pass defense, and Dalton couldn't sustain drives without the benefit of any easy completions. Dalton will be a low-end two-quarterback-league play when the Bengals visit the Vikings next. Dec 10 - 4:00 PM

Andy Dalton completed 21-of-36 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' 23-20, Week 13 loss to the Steelers.

The Bengals played arguably their best half of football in years in the first 30 minutes, taking a 17-3 lead to the locker room. Dalton was firing on all cylinders, hooking up with A.J. Green seven times for 77 yards and two touchdowns before the break. But the offense came out completely flat after the half. Green went catch-less on four targets, and Dalton managed just 61 yards passing over the final two frames, as the Bengals blew a 17-point lead. Dalton will be a mid-range QB2 next week at home against the Bears.
Dec 5 - 12:24 AM

Andy Dalton completed 18-of-28 passes for 214 yards and two touchdowns with 26 rushing on four carries in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Browns.

Dalton wasn't required to do much, but still delivered against Cleveland, a team he has consistently found success against. He has now thrown multiple touchdown passes in six straight games against the Browns, the longest such streak a quarterback has had against Cleveland in the franchise history for the Browns. Dalton threw an 8-yard touchdown to Tyler Boyd on the opening drive of the game and then a 1-yard touchdown to Tyler Kroft on the opening drive of the third quarter. Dalton has now thrown at least two touchdown passes in five of past six games and will be a QB2 option next week against the Steelers.
Nov 26 - 4:27 PM

Andy Dalton completed 15-of-25 passes for 154 yards and three touchdowns while notching four yards on three carries Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 11 win over the Broncos.

It wasn’t a big yardage day for Dalton, which was probably to be expected against a tough Broncos secondary. That being said, Dalton did well to lead three touchdown drives including two in the first half. He zipped a one-yard touchdown to Tyler Kroft off a play-action pass in the first quarter before threading the needle on a 29-yard score to Alex Erickson early in the second frame. Later he recognized a mismatch with A.J. Green, who beat Bradley Roby for an 18-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Dalton has now gone his last four games without throwing an interception after being picked off eight times over his first six outings. He gets the Browns at home in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 9:20 PM

Andy Dalton completed 20-of-35 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns in Week 10 against the Titans.

Dalton played fairly well on early downs but struggled mightily on 3rd downs as the Bengals converted only 1-of-10 attempts on the day. The Bengals were more than doubled in time-of-possession, limiting the overall output of the Bengals offense. A big chunk of Dalton's yards came on two long touchdowns, a 37-yard pass to Brandon LaFell early in the game and a 70-yard strike to A.J. Green in the fourth quarter. Dalton shouldn't be started in Week 11 against the Broncos.
Nov 12 - 5:23 PM

Andy Dalton completed 10-of-18 passes for 136 yards in Week 9 against the Jaguars.

Dalton was shut down against Jacksonville's elite secondary. He didn't have any supporting cast after A.J. Green got ejected at the end of the first half. With Green potentially looking at a suspension. Dalton should be avoided for a Week 10 matchup with Tennessee.
Nov 5 - 4:02 PM

Andy Dalton completed 17-of-29 passes for 243 yards with two touchdowns while delivering 10 yards on three carries Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 8 win over the Colts.

While Dalton didn’t stuff the stat sheet like many were expecting, he kept the mistakes to a minimum and extended several plays with his feet. He showed a puzzling lack of chemistry with A.J. Green (three-of-eight for 27 yards), though the two did hook up for an eight-yard touchdown late in the first half. Dalton’s second and final TD came on a 25-yard strike to Josh Malone in the third quarter. His longest play came on a 67-yard completion to Joe Mixon, though Mixon did most of the work. If Dalton couldn’t light it up in a cake home matchup against Indy, we wouldn’t have much faith in him next week on the road against Jacksonville’s elite secondary.
Oct 29 - 5:47 PM

Andy Dalton completed 17-of-30 passes for 140 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Bengals' Week 7 loss to the Steelers.

Dalton struggled under pressure as the Bengals' offensive line was a big mismatch for the Steelers' pass rush. He was sacked four times and pressured on many key 3rd downs, playing a part in the Bengals 27 percent 3rd down conversion rate. Dalton's interceptions both came from bouncing off his receivers hands and while neither were great throws, having them intercepted was unlucky. Despite flashing in coach Bill Lazor's new offensive scheme he's still wildly inconsistent.
Oct 22 - 7:35 PM

Andy Dalton completed 22-of-36 passes for 328 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 5 win over Buffalo.

It was another strong game from Dalton despite the turnovers. Dalton locked on to A.J. Green, who scored a 77-yard touchdown. He injured his ankle in the first half, but played with it heavily taped. Dalton has now led the Bengals to two straight wins after a shaky start. The Bengals are on their bye in Week 6.
Oct 8 - 4:19 PM

Andy Dalton completed 25-of-30 passes for 286 yards and four touchdowns, adding 29 rushing yards on four carries in the Bengals' Week 4 win versus the Browns.

It was the first time Dalton has thrown four touchdowns in a game since Week 16, 2013 and his 83.3 percent completion rate was the highest in his career. Dalton has now thrown 13 touchdowns and zero interceptions over his past five games versus the Browns. After a brutal start to the season, Dalton has now completed 46-of-57 passes (80.7 percent) for 498 yards with six touchdowns and zero interceptions the past two weeks. Despite the turnaround, Dalton will still be considered a QB2 coming into Week 5 against a surprisingly stiff Buffalo pass defense.
Oct 1 - 4:11 PM

Andy Dalton completed 21-of-27 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Packers.

Under new OC Bill Lazor, it was pretty evident that the plan was to get the ball out of Dalton's hand quickly as a way to mask a terrible offensive line. The plan worked early, with the Bengals taking a 21-7 lead into halftime, but they were unable to find the end zone after the break and lost in overtime. Dalton's first touchdown was a 10-yard strike to A.J. Green, and the second was a wide-open quick-hitter to Giovani Bernard who walked into the end zone. Dalton will be in the QB2 mix next week at the Browns.
Sep 24 - 8:05 PM

Andy Dalton completed 20-of-35 passes for 224 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Bengals' 13-9, Week 2 loss to the Texans.

The Bengals now have zero touchdowns through two home games to begin the season. No team has done that since the 1939 Philadelphia Eagles. (What's up, guys?) Dalton was stunningly ineffective, uncorking a number of concerningly-bad passes. At one point he attempted to flutter a knuckleball into the stands. The next play, he inexcusably overshot Brandon LaFell on what probably would have been a 73-yard touchdown. Dalton's protection left much to be desired, but time and again, he missed throws NFL quarterbacks are never supposed to miss. Through two starts, he doesn't look like the same player he's been the past few seasons. The Bengals travel to Lambeau Field in Week 3.
Sep 14 - 11:28 PM

Andy Dalton completed 16-of-31 passes for 170 yards with no touchdowns, four interceptions and a lost fumble, while adding one rush for two yards Sunday in the Bengals’ Week 1 loss to the Ravens.

He also lost 26 yards on five sacks. This may not have been as bad as Dalton’s infamous game against the Browns a few years ago, but it was close. Facing pressure from all angles, Dalton predictably melted down, committing five turnovers with two of those coming in the red zone. He even had difficulty connecting with perennial Pro Bowler A.J. Green, completing just five-of-10 passes to his top wideout. Dalton looked like a deer in the headlights whenever the Ravens brought pressure while showing little in the little in the way of accuracy and decision-making. Facing a stingy Texans D on a short week, Dalton owners shouldn’t be optimistic about his Week 2 prospects.
Sep 10 - 5:14 PM

Andy Dalton completed 8-of-13 passes for 70 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in Sunday's third preseason game.

Dalton played the entire first half. The Bengals seemed focused on establishing the run, while Dalton seemed focused on getting his timing down with A.J. Green, whom he targeted relentlessly. The Bengals' offense didn't look particularly sharp this summer, but Dalton attempted only 31 passes. Armed with a much-improved supporting cast on 2016, Dalton is in the back-end QB1 mix.
Aug 27 - 6:29 PM

Andy Dalton thinks the offense will make "a big jump" this season after adding John Ross and Joe Mixon.

"We’re faster obviously. With John Ross’ speed that will be a big factor," Dalton said. "I would think that with (Mixon’s) versatility – the ability to run and catch – I think that’s going to be big." The cupboard ran dry in Cincinnati last season following the departures of Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu as well as the injuries to A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert, but the organization did a good job reloading. Dalton could end up being a value in fantasy drafts.
