The Bengals just finished a thorough whipping of the New York Jets at home, 49-9, and the story of the game is the red-hot play of the red rifle, Andy Dalton, as well as the continued emergence of wide receiver Marvin Jones. The second-year man out of California has slowly emerged over the past month as a legitimate No. 2 receiver to compliment All-Pro A.J. Green.
Coming into today, Jones had caught seven passes for 128 yards and two TDs in the past two games. He surpassed those numbers in the first-half alone en route to a career day that saw him catch eight passes for 122 yards and four touchdowns.
As far as the man who delivered those passes, Dalton threw a career-high 5 touchdowns and helped pace the Bengals to an easy win. In the last three weeks, Dalton is 69/104 (66.3%) with 1,074 yards, 11 touchdowns and just , 2 interceptions. He’s also the first quarterback to throw for 5 TDs against the Jets since Dan Marino in 1988.
