2013 NFL Playoffs: Andy Dalton Holds Key To Bengals’ Success
For the second straight season, NFL pundits across the globe are starting to wonder if the Cincinnati Bengals are contenders or pretenders for a Lombardi Trophy this February. At first, 2013 looked to be the year that Marvin Lewis and the Bengals finally assert their dominance and run away with the AFC North. However, a few hiccups to teams like the Miami Dolphins and suddenly no one outside of Cincinnati is buying into Bengals.
I would have a first-class seat on the Bengals’ bandwagon, but the fact of the matter is that Andy Dalton has yet to prove himself as a playoff-level quarterback. In fact, in the last three games Dalton has a spotty completion percentage of 50% and has thrown for an average of 185.6 yards per contest. Fortunately, the Bengals were able to win two of those three games, but that won’t be the case once the playoffs hit.
Dalton has been outplayed each of the last two years in the postseason by Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates. With two playoff starts under his belt, Dalton has yet to throw a touchdown despite throwing four interceptions for a mere 354 passing yards. At the end of the day; Cincinnati fans should hold off on buying Super Bowl tickets as Dalton’s unimpressive play will keep the Bengals at bay this postseason.
