Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had a hell of a performance against the New York Giants. And he's being recognized for it.
Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was named AFC Offensive Player of the Week by the NFL on Wednesday. Completing 21 of 30 passes for 199 yards passing and four touchdowns, for a passer rating of 127.6, Dalton helped lead the Bengals to a 31-13 win over the New York Giants. Dalton is the first Bengals player to earn AFC Offensive Player of the Week since Carson Palmer in 2009 against the Chicago Bears.
It's the third time this season that a Bengals player has been awarded with a player of the week award, following Adam Jones' Special Teams Player of the Week in Week Two against the Cleveland Browns and Michael Johnson's Defensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Washington Redskins in Week Three.

Last week: 26 (+0)
Did Andy Dalton beat his first playoff team last week? He might have, but I don’t think the Giants are going to be a playoff team when it’s all said and done (more on that later). If that doesn’t piss Bengals fans off enough, they’re still down here and my pick to be this year’s team that goes from the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Right now...
The Bengals got a huge boost this weekend with a huge or shall we say, GIANT, win over the G-Men 31-13 Sunday at PBS. The tone was set early as Andy “Red” Dalton ended the game with an early strike to AJ Green to go up 7-0. Guess he had a pretty good idea about the size of those holes in the Giants secondary. Thank god we have the best WR in the game. Next up for the Bengals...
Cincinnati Bengals (4-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-8)
Almost every year, we have one team go from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Right now, every playoff team from last year has at least 4 wins. That means one of two things. We’re not going to have a team like that this year (only happened 1 other time in the last decade) or either Detroit, New Orleans, or Cincinnati is about...
Against the lowly Chiefs Dalton will have an excellent opportunity to put up 20 or more fantasy points.
(CIN) Andy Dalton vs. (KC) – For some reason I decided to stick with Eli Manning over Andy Dalton last week in the league I consider my most important, a decision that did not help me one bit. Luckily this weekend I don’t have to make the choice with Eli on bye, so...
After gaining a much-needed boost of confidence, the Cincinnati Bengals have a prime chance to lift their playoff hopes.
The Bengals would appear to have a favorable schedule over the next few weeks, beginning with Sunday's visit to the beleaguered Kansas City Chiefs.
Just when it seemed that it might continue its historic trend of inconsistency, Cincinnati pulled off a decisive...
From the first drive of the game to the last drive of the game the Cincinnati Bengals came out and took it to the New York Giants in a 31-13 beatdown that wasn’t even as close as that score would indicate. The Giants dropped their second straight game to an AFC North opponent and fell to 6-4.
Behind four turnovers and four touchdown passes from quarterback Andy Dalton, the Bengals...
