Dalton once again led the Bengals to the playoffs and once again his team lost to the Houston Texans. Dodging the Texans in this year’s playoffs would be ideal, but if the two meet up again, that third time’s a charm saying could come into play for Cincy.
Whether the case, the quarterback is coming off of a season where he threw 27 touchdowns and 3,669 yards. However, he also threw 16 interceptions on the season. His 27 touchdowns were good enough to rank him in the top 10 in the NFL. Not too bad since he did only join the league a couple of seasons ago (2011).
Dalton is only 25 years old and he has a bright future ahead of him. It helps when a QB has a great football team as well.
A.J. Green is just going to get better and better and although opposing defenses will be focused on him, he is just too good to stop. The 6’4” wide receiver is coming off of a season where he had 11 touchdowns and 1,350 receiving yards. Green is also 25 years old and him and Dalton will be hooking up in the passing game for years to come.
They will continue to improve with one another and both will have great seasons next year. However, Dalton will have his best season yet and he will show that he is becoming one of the better quarterbacks in the NFL.
