Cincinnati Bengals: 4 things we learned from Week 1 loss at Seattle
By Steve Rivera
Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton looks to be the beneficiary of right place right time. As Zac Taylor gets his head coaching career underway in Cincinnati, Dalton might be getting ready for a big second act.
For Dalton fans, this is huge. The veteran quarterback has needed a career resuscitation for a few seasons now and in Taylor, he looks to be ready for his second act. In Seattle, no easy place to play, he had a career kind of day. Dalton would light up the Seahawks defense, going 35 of 51 for 418 yards and two touchdowns. His two turnovers aside, he had a tremendous afternoon.
This bodes well in all kinds of ways. Looking forward, you have to feel that Dalton and Taylor is a match made in football heaven for Bengals fans. The veteran quarterback looked at ease and in full command of what Taylor hopes to do this season. The connection with wide receiver John Ross looked comfortable. When A.J. Green returns, the sky’s the limit for Dalton and the Cincinnati offense.
It is worth remembering that it was Week 1. Soon enough, Bengals opponents will have more and more tape on Dalton and the Cincinnati offense. If Taylor continues to grow the game plan, no telling what kind of season Dalton could have.
