Found December 19, 2011 on Football Nation:
Cincinnati Bengals – 20, St. Louis Rams – 13 The Bengals mostly looked like they were sleepwalking through this game, which was still good enough to secure a win.  This was definitely not one of Andy Dalton’s (179 yards, 0 TDs, 1 INT) better games, but he did ok and that’s all that’s needed to beat the Rams these days.  Kellen Clemens (238 total yards, 1 TD) got the start this week for an injured Sam Bradford and he looked, well… at least as good as Bradford has looked this year.  Bradford is supposed to be a difference maker, but if he load his play from this season up against the play by Clemens and AJ Feeley, you’d have a tough time telling which one was the franchise QB. Even though it was a slow day for Dalton, AJ Green (6-115) was extremely busy as the top target in the Bengals’ attack.  Even in Dalton’s worst days Green is still a good play as long as he’s healthy.  Jermaine Gresham (3-16) was the second target, but that wasn’t worth a whole lot this week.

Bradford rejects notion of going on IR

Sam Bradford can't wait to get off the exercise bicycle and back on the practice field. Not only has he logged way too many miles, he got unsolicited advice from a reporter about raising the seat a notch or two. ''As you told me, my form wasn't very good, too,'' Bradford said.

Bengals tough it out over Rams, 20-13

It wasn't pretty, but the Bengals kept their playoff hopes alive with a 2013 win over the Rams in St. Louis. Fantasy Spin: Andy Dalton was lousy, especially considering the depleted secondary he was facing. He had only 179 yards passing, 0 TDs and an interception. Cedric Benson had 78 yards and a TD on the ground, yet was inexplicably pulled on one series that wound up with a...

Report Card — Rams game

PASS OFFENSE (B-) Solid, not great or awful. Andy Dalton (15 of 26 for 179 yards) had a passer rating of 62.8, but the number took a big hit due to his second quarter interception and not throwing a touchdown pass for the first time in 11 games. A.J. Green had 6 catches for 115 yards, including a 55-yard grab in single coverage in the first quarter and a 30-yard reception on a bubble...

Rams could go with Kellen Clemens again

(Eds: Updates with details, quotes. With AP Photos.) By R.B. FALLSTROM AP Sports Writer Another short week makes it more likely St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford will be out again. At least now there's a bit of a backup plan. While familiarizing himself with the roster, Kellen Clemens exceeded expectations in Sunday's 20-13 loss to Cincinnati. Scoring in double-digits...
