The Bengals got on the board early today vs the Detroit Lions after Andy Dalton rolled out of the pocket and fired down the field to a wide-open A.J. Green, who actually had to slow down to catch the ball over Lions defensive back Chris Houston, and he easily glided into the endzone:
Considering how close the game was throughout, that made this special play that much more important to the Bengals ultimately winning the game.
Still, many people pointed out Dalton’s in ability on this throw, as well as several others, to hit Green in stride so he didn’t have to stop and catch a contested ball.
While Dalton clearly has his limitations, he once again showed today he’s capable of playing well enough to keep this team atop the AFC North, which is where they sit comfortably as of now.
