Bengals' Andy Dalton: Can't get team in end zone in Week 2 loss

Dalton completed 20 of 35 passes for 224 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Thursday's 13-9 loss to the Texans. He also gained five yards on two rushes.

While he didn't look anywhere near as ineffective as in the opener, Dalton and the entire offense came up small for the second consecutive week at home. The veteran signal caller managed just 6.4 yards per attempt, a modest improvement over the 5.5 figure he generated in the Week 1 shutout loss to the Ravens. The 29-year-old did encouragingly spread the ball around to the likes of Tyler Eifert and Alex Erickson, and also connected on a team-high five occasions with top target A.J. Green. Dalton was also able to stay away from turnovers altogether after uncharacteristically throwing four interceptions against Baltimore, but he and the Bengals will enter the Week 3 road tilt versus the Packers still seeking their first touchdown of the season.
