One of the most encouraging developments has been the Bengals offense’s performance. The Bengals have gone to a more up-tempo approach under new coordinator Hue Jackson and have looked smooth in the no-huddle offense.
QB Andy Dalton has completed 70.6 percent of his passes for 372 yards with one touchdown, no sacks and no interceptions, for a passer rating of 116.3. Against the Cardinals, he was 13 of 21 for 157 yards while playing the first half.
“I’m very confident in what we have,” Dalton said. “The guys that we have on this team, the way that we’ve been playing, I think we’re ready to go for the opener.”
