Bengals' Andy Dalton: Will start Week 3

Coach Marvin Lewis confirmed following Thursday's loss to the Texans that Dalton's job as the team's starting quarterback is safe, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.

The Bengals are still looking for their first touchdown of the season after suffering discouraging losses to the Ravens in Week 1 and the Texans in Week 2, with both of those games taking place at home. Over those two games, Dalton threw four interceptions and lost a fumble while throwing for 394 total yards. If the slide continues, it will be hard for Lewis not to consider starting backup AJ McCarron, although the coach plans to roll into Green Bay next Sunday with Dalton at the helm of Cincinnati's offense.
