Andy Dalton completed 27-of-42 passes for 284 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in the Bengals' Week 8 tie with the Redskins.
Dalton also made things happen on the ground, rushing for a one-yard score on a play action boot in the third quarter, converting a third down late in the fourth quarter, and rushing for a first down in overtime. Unfortunately, his biggest blunder also came on the ground. With the Bengals seemingly driving for a win late in overtime, Dalton fumbled while trying to sneak for a first down, basically sealing the tie. Aside from the fumble, Dalton was not sharp overall. He should have been picked three times by Josh Norman, missed A.J. Green deep on several occasions, missed Green twice more on what could have been a game-sealing drive, and threw a terrible interception which temporarily allowed Washington to take the lead. The good news is Dalton showed his connection with Tyler Eifert is alive and well, and those two should find plenty of success against the Giants after the bye. Dalton will be a borderline QB1 in that matchup.
