Inching closer to the regular season, the Bengals face the Bills with multiple position battles brewing. With not much time left, who will come out on top?

After comeback victories in the previous two games, the Bengals look to continue their winning ways against a Bills team who also had a crucial victory last week against the Cleveland Browns. In those previous two starts, the offense and defense for the Bengals have traded off sluggish and hot starts respectively, only to be carried by the second and third teams. Look for Andy Dalton and the first team to come out with something to prove as we inch closer to the regular season.

Fan Reception: Bills Quarterbacks Vs. Andy Dalton

In what could be chalked up as a Cinderella finish to the 2017 regular season, Dalton led the Bengals to a last second victory over the Baltimore Ravens on a pass to WR Tyler Boyd. This by default secured a playoff berth for the Bills, their first appearance since 1999. Happening overnight like a social media sensation, Dalton instantly became the most loved man in western New York.

From sending mounds of buffalo wings to Cincinnati to fans donating $450k to the Andy and Jordan Dalton Foundation, the Bengals gained a few fans that night in more ways than one. With the quarterback group for the Bills unproven, look for Dalton to receive the warmest reception when entering the game.
