CINCINNATI (AP) -- Andy Dalton needs to play much better than he has in the past few weeks if the Bengals are going to pull off a franchise rarity. Dalton was indecisive and repeatedly missed throws during a 34-13 win in Philadelphia that was set up by the Eagles' fumbling. The Bengals (8-6) moved into playoff position with the win, and can clinch a spot by beating the Steelers (7-7) in Pittsburgh on Sunday. It would be a breakthrough for Dalton and the Bengals, who are 0-6 against Pittsburgh and Baltimore over the last two seasons. A win also would give them back-to-back playoff berths for only the second time in the team's 45-year history. Dalton hasn't done well against the Steelers and knows that has to change.
