Gameball: Andy Dalton Thrives in Jay Gruden’s Balanced Offense

2 of 2

Andy needs to keep playing at this level throughout the season and into the playoffs in order to get a playoff victory. It really showed today all the offensive firepower he has at his disposal with Giovani Bernard exploding with big running plays and Marvin Jones makings some great catches. Andy really used them to his advantage today and it led to a key victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

Honorable Mention: Jay Gruden

Jay called a great game today with some quick screens and exploiting the Colts weak secondary. He also used Giovani Bernard on some toss running plays to the outside that was working great. Kudos to Jay Gruden and the Offense for a great game.

And how’s this for balance: he Bengals ran 70 plays yesterday. 35 of them were passes, and 35 were rushes. Way to go Jay.
