Dalton completed 29 of 47 pass attempts for 243 yards and one interception while adding 48 yards on seven carries during Sunday's 23-19 loss to the Giants. Dalton, who struggled mightily in the early going, averaged just 5.2 yards per attempt while completing 62 percent of his passes. He steadied the ship and led his team into the red zone with a chance to win late, only to throw an interception in the end zone in the face of relentless pressure. Dalton came into this one with an impressive 9:2 TD:INT over the last four games, but he couldn't get the job done in this one with a potential playoff spot on the line. The veteran showed he can still perform at times this season and will now enter free agency perhaps in hopes of earning another chance to start.
Dalton completed 22 of 30 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns with one interception in Sunday's 37-17 win over the Eagles. He also gained 15 rushing yards on five carries. In a battle between two of the worst secondaries in the league, Dalton and Jalen Hurts combined for 719 passing yards, but it was the veteran who came out on top with two TD strikes to Michael Gallup and one to CeeDee Lamb, with both Gallup and Amari Cooper piling up 121 receiving yards on the afternoon. Dalton has tossed multiple touchdowns in four straight games, posting a 9:2 TD:INT over that stretch, while his performance Sunday marked his first 300-yard effort as a Cowboy. He'll look to keep that momentum going in Week 17's clash with the Giants, as both teams remain alive in the hunt for the NFC East title.
Dalton completed 19 of 33 pass attempts for 209 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 41-33 win over the 49ers. Dalton completed just 57 percent of his passes as he struggled to connect with some of his top targets. He did avoid turning the ball over for the second straight game, however, while completing touchdown passes to Michael Gallup and Dalton Schultz. Dalton now has a 10:3 TD:INT over his last five games and has led the Cowboys to three wins in that stretch to climb back into the NFC East race. He'll look to build on his solid recent play next Sunday against the Eagles.
Dalton completed 16 of 23 pass attempts for 185 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 14 against the Bengals. Dalton returned to Cincinnati to face his former team and took advantage of a mistake-prone performance by the Bengals. He tallied multiple touchdowns for the third time in his last four starts, connecting with Amari Cooper and Tony Pollard for 11 and seven-yard touchdown tosses, respectively. After the Cowboys jumped out to a multiple-score lead in the second quarter, Dalton was asked to take to the air only 23 times while the team accumulated 25 rushing attempts. Dalton may need to take to the air more in Week 15 against San Francisco.
Dalton completed 31 of 48 passes for 285 yards with two touchdowns and one interception in the Cowboys' 34-17 loss to the Ravens on Tuesday night. He also gained two yards on his one rush. The veteran quarterback has looked increasingly comfortable helming the Cowboys offense, with Tuesday night's effort qualifying as one of Dalton's most productive yet this season. The 33-year-old threw touchdown passes to Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper in the second and fourth quarters, giving him multiple scores in two of his last three games. Dalton's yardage tally was also a season high, with his one blemish coming in the second quarter in the form of an interception by Patrick Queen on a pass intended for Amari Cooper. Dalton's play of late does offer some optimism as the fantasy playoffs begin, and those rostering the former Bengal could benefit from an extra level of motivation in a Week 14 matchup that will mark his return to Cincinnati.
