Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a day to forget against the Saints, finishing things up with 153 passing yards and two interceptions in the 51-14 loss. Though he managed to throw a touchdown pass to wide receiver John Ross, the team was relegated to just a little over 20 minutes of possession time against a mighty Saints offense that couldn't stay off the field. The four sacks that were inflicted upon him didn't help either, but he has a chance to turn things around against the Ravens on Sunday with Dalton throwing an impressive four touchdowns against them in Week 2.
Though the matchup against the New Orleans Saints is a good one, Dalton can't be trusted as anything more than a QB2 in Week 10. A.J. Green will miss the contest, and Dalton has been a top-12 quarterback in just 4-of-11 games without his top weapon and holds a 11/10 touchdown-to-interception ratio in those games (QB17 average). Beyond emerging star Tyler Boyd, the Bengals have John Ross and Alex Erickson (combined 33 career receptions). The Saints have allowed big passing numbers in three straight games, which offers some hope, but it's hard to see Dalton approaching his ceiling without his top option in the passing game.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton completed 21 of 34 passes for 280 yards and two touchdowns in Week 8s victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He also added ten yards on three carries. Daltons day couldve been bigger but the Bengals raced out to a substantial lead early before a furious comeback attempt by the Bucs. Daltons effective game is a welcome result after his face-plant in Week 7. Hell be a backend QB1 against the New Orleans Saints in Week 10 when the Bengals return from their bye.
