Bengals QB Andy Dalton finished 8-for-8 with 144 yards, one touchdown and a 158.3 passer rating. Those statistics, combined with his numbers from the preseason opener at Kansas City the week before, make him 11-for-13 with 215 passing yards and a 144.4 passer rating in limited action through the two games.
It's all evidence that Dalton really is playing better and more efficiently than he has at any other point in his career.
"I see it every year, but especially this camp," Sanu said. "I haven't seen him throw the ball so accurate, so efficient. Every time you turn around the ball is just there and you're like, 'Wow."
Dalton contends that nothing has changed from last season, the story said, and continued that, in his eyes, he's still playing the same as he did before and is practicing the same. He may have made a few tweaks and modifications to better his mechanics, but he says everything else is the same. Dalton is, of course, a pretty solid QB2 option this year to target in later rounds of your draft.
