The guys at Pro Football Focus have routinely had one or more Bengals in their weekly “Team of the “Week”, which highlights some of the highest-graded NFL players at their respective positions. As you can imagine, the 6-2 Bengals have had several players make this list, but the most notable player to make it this week was quarterback Andy Dalton, who beat out Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers for the top spot at QB:
Quarterback: Andy Dalton, CIN (+5.2)
It seems only yesterday we were all writing Dalton off after another frustrating performance. Well the third year quarterback has rebounded nicely from an early season slump and this was his best game to date. Bengals fans will be hoping he can keep it up.
Honorable Mention: Aaron Rodgers (GB)
