Bengals vs. Falcons grades

Bengals vs. Falcons grades

We take a look at each phase of the game, from passing and rushing offense, to passing and rushing defense. Even special teams gets a look. What are your grades? PASSING OFFENSE Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was efficient when allowed, safe when troubled but opportunistic when available on Sunday. His 76-yard touchdown throw to Mohamed Sanu was equal parts recognition and performance. A handful of pass rushers declared themselves prior to the snap. Dalton recognized the coverage (Cover Zero) and flipped the football to Sanu... who did the rest. Dalton was fairly protected by...

Andy Dalton beats the blitz to hit Mohamed Sanu for game-breaker (GIF)

Andy Dalton saw a safety creep up to the line of scrimmage, and with the Falcons' also showing 'blitz', Dalton knew they were bringing an all-out blitz. The play of the game Sunday came on a 3rd-and-6 at the 10:58 mark of the third quarter with the Bengals holding a 10-3 lead over the Falcons. Andy Dalton saw a safety creep up to the line of scrimmage, and with the Falcons' also showing 'blitz', Dalton knew Atlanta was going to bring an all-out blitz. "I knew they were bringing all-out pressure there, so one guy is going to be unblocked," Dalton said. "We had a good check on and Mo ran a...

AFC North roundup: Bengals go to 2-0, Browns score upset

After two weeks, it appears the AFC North will be one of the more competitive divisions in the NFL. It looks like a top-to-bottom battle is beginning in the AFC North. The Bengals gave quarterback Andy Dalton a contract extension before the 2014 season started, and through two games, he's rewarded the team for doing so. Dalton has been sharp in back-to-back wins over Baltimore and Atlanta, and his play is a big part of why the Bengals sit at the top of the AFC North at 2-0. Dalton was 15-for-23 for 252 yards and a touchdown in Cincinnati's decisive 24-10 win over the Falcons in Week 2,...

Bengals rely on running back duo against the Falcons

Bengals rely on running back duo against the Falcons

Despite several components missing, Cincinnati's offense thrived on Sunday by relying on their running back duo who accounted for 56 percent of the team's total production. For the second time in as many games, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton can hang his spotless jersey inside his locker. Spotless. Wrinkle-free. During Cincinnati's 24-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons, Dalton wasn't sacked and suffered only one hit. This mirrors last week when Dalton was held upright against the Ravens, victim of one hit by Baltimore's defense. You can credit the offensive line, the offensive game-plan and...

Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green has "turf toe"

Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green left the game during Cincinnati's opening possession in the first quarter. More tests are scheduled. During their 24-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, the Cincinnati Bengals generated over 300 yards passing --Andy Dalton (252) and Mohamed Sanu (50). And they did that without superstar wide receiver A.J. Green, who was being looked at by the training staff during Cincinnati's game-opening possession. Eventually Green was declared "out" with a toe injury. According to Ian Rapoport, they're calling it "turf toe." And for the #Bengals, it...

Bengals with two quick touchdowns in the third quarter

After a quick three-and-out to open the third quarter, the Bengals scored two touchdowns to extend their lead 24-3 midway through the third. It was a slow start in the second half. Not really. It was dust and gasoline. After both teams exchanged three-and-out possessions to open the third quarter, you had to momentarily worry that Cincinnati's momentum would shift towards Atlanta. It happened last week and those type of thoughts enter the mind of older Bengals fans who have seen it all. With 11:09 remaining in the third quarter with six yards needed on third down, Andy Dalton takes the...

Marshall Faulk GMC Pressure to Perform: Andy Dalton so vogue

It's odd. Yes. Dalton is a quarterback that breaks a single-season franchise record for yards passing and touchdowns and he's under the most pressure? Maybe. We picked someone else anyway. Wow.

Andy Dalton And The Falcons' Need For A Pass Rush

Andy Dalton And The Falcons' Need For A Pass Rush

The Falcons I mentioned this in yesterday's article about stopping the Bengals, but Andy Dalton is essentially a Dickensian tale of duality in the form of an NFL quarterback. With time in the pocket, Dalton has at least league average accuracy, underrated strength in his throwing arm and a knack for finding the open receiver. He steps up into the pocket, delivers crisp throws and is particularly good at identifying when A.J. Green is in a position to wreak havoc. This is not the fun Dalton for other NFL teams to play against. Under pressure, Dalton reverts into a rookie. His mechanics go...

Hue Jackson submits hit on Andy Dalton to league office

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't happy about a shot that Andy Dalton received on Sunday. And according to NFL rules, he shouldn't be. But it might have something to do with history also. Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson isn't quite angry, no. But he is irritated enough to submit a play to the league office. With 6:22 remaining in the game, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton took a shot below the knees well after handing off to Giovani Bernard. Here: According to Paul Dehner with the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals are submitting this play......

Dave Lapham and Dan Hoard's call of Andy Dalton hitting AJ Green to beat Ravens

Andy Dalton dropped a dime into the arms of AJ Green, who took it to the house to give Cincinnati the lead and ultimately the win. After taking an early 15-0 lead over Baltimore, it looked as though the Bengals were going to cruise to an easy week 1 win. Then the second half came, and so too did a 16-0 run by Baltimore to take the lead. Facing a Baltimore defense that had all the momentum behind a rocking Ravens crowd, Andy Dalton dropped a dime into the arms of AJ Green, who took it to the house to give Cincinnati the lead and ultimately the win.

Despite game-winning TD, depleted secondary held its own

Most of the Bengals' completions were underneath the coverageBengals quarterback Andy Dalton took what the Ravens' depleted secondary gave him in the passing game for more than three quarters. When Cincinnati fell behind in the fourth quarter, he took advantage of that soft coverage for the game-winning blow.
