QB Andy Dalton
Wait, I think Andy just had another ball batted down. The tape on Andy is out and teams that have the personnel to do it are doing it. Call it protection, play calling, or the running game, the 3rd year QB played a big part in this loss. One thing that is very evident, the most important player on this team by a very wide margin is AJ Green. You take away his production and the Bengals could very well could be 3-7. Pro Football Focus had Dalton rated at -6.1 for one of his worst games of his career.
Now, here comes Cleveland with the ability to take away Green, stop the run, and pressure Dalton. The question is will he step up or is this an early beginning to his annual end of year collapse?
