    Bengals QB Andy Dalton throws three TDs in Week 3 win

    Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton completed 20 of 32 passes for 383 yards, three touchdowns and in interception in Sunday's 28-24 win over the Ravens. He also rushed five times for 10 yards, a touchdown and a fumble. The 27-year-old turned in a huge performance in this back and forth affair, securing the victory on a touchdown pass to A.J. Green with just over two minutes remaining. The duo of Dalton and Green revived their productive relationship Sunday, as the latter finished with 227 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns, which bodes well for the fantasy value of each. Dalton now has an 8:1 TD:INT ratio this season, and he will look to continue his hot start against the vulnerable Chiefs secondary in Week 4.

    Bengals QB Andy Dalton tosses three TD passes in Week 2 win

    Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton completed 16 of 26 passes for 214 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's win over San Diego. Dalton enjoyed a second-straight efficient performance on Sunday. Through the first two games of the season, Dalton has completed 68 percent of his passes for 483 yards, five touchdowns and, most importantly, no interceptions, his first back-to-back games without a pick since Week 1 and Week 2 of last year. Dalton may not put up the huge numbers associated with a No. 1 quarterback, but he's showing the kind of reliability valuable for a No. 2 option.

"He's going to have to prove otherwise. I believe this guy has it in him. My job, my charge as I've said before is to have him do it on a consistent basis." Jackson added he's seen the great Dalton and thinks it's something to build on.

    Marvin Lewis: 'No problem with Andy Dalton as our quarterback'

    The Bengals are sticking with Andy Dalton at quarterback and have no plans to bring in competition. But coach Marvin Lewis didn't exactly give Dalton a ringing endorsement. Noting Dalton, Carson Palmer and Jon Kitna have started all but 12 of his 198 games as Cincy's coach, Lewis said he prefers the status quo. "Fortunately, somehow I've got the right little thing on my shoulder that says, 'Don't get into a quarterback controversy,'" Lewis told the team's website. "That's worked from Jon to Carson to Andy. It's helped us have the success we've had and those guys have been good players, productive players. Even when they've left out of here they've been productive. It works."We have no problem with Andy Dalton as our quarterback. We don't have time to waste time with another QB. To not continue to press forward and get Andy better and to get whoever the backup quarterbacks are better. The quarterback competition. Where has it worked? It doesn't get you wins." The team hopes to re-sign Jason Campbell as Dalton's backup.

    Andy Dalton not expected to face competition

    The Bengals aren't expected to draft a quarterback and are prepared to enter 2015 with the same three quarterbacks they had this season, reports the team's website. That means Andy Dalton starting, Jason Campbell backing him up and AJ McCarron as the developmental project. "He's our guy and we're not going to shy away from that," offensive coordinator Hue Jackson said of Dalton. Added quarterbacks coach Ken Zampese: "He was better with the intangibles this year and the ball was better coming out of his hand. You could see that right away when he came back from the last offseason." Jackson hopes the team re-signs Campbell, an impending free agent, saying Campbell "did a sensational job in the role we asked him to play."

    Andy Dalton falls to 0-4 in playoff games

    For the fourth straight year, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton came up short in the playoffs. Dalton hit 18 of 35 passes for only 155 yards in Sunday's 26-10 playoff loss at Indianapolis. He did not throw a touchdown or an interception, and lost a fumble getting sacked. Dalton was hamstrung playing without No. 1 wideout A.J. Green (concussion) and tight end Jermaine Gresham (back), two of his top three targets. Dalton's longest completion went 26 yards to running back Rex Burkhead, who moved to receiver due to the injuries. It was a disappointing, but predictable ending for Dalton after he put up pedestrian numbers in the regular season. Dalton accounted for 23 touchdowns (four rushing) and 19 turnovers.
