Andy Dalton completed 22-of-36 passes for 328 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 5 win over Buffalo.
It was another strong game from Dalton depite the turnovers. Dalton locked on to A.J. Green, who scored a 77-yard touchdown. He injured his ankle in the first half, but played with it heavily taped. Dalton has now led the Bengals to two straight wins after a shaky start. The Bengals are on their bye in Week 6.

Andy Dalton completed 25-of-30 passes for 286 yards and four touchdowns, adding 29 rushing yards on four carries.
It was the first time Dalton has thrown four touchdowns in a game since Week 16, 2013 and his 83.3 percent completion rate was the highest in his career. Dalton has now thrown 13 touchdowns and zero interceptions over his past five games versus the Browns. After a brutal start to the season, Dalton has now completed 46-of-57 passes (80.7 percent) for 498 yards with six touchdowns and zero interceptions the past two weeks. Despite the turnaround, Dalton will still be considered a QB2 coming into Week 5 against a surprisingly stiff Buffalo pass defense.

Andy Dalton completed 21-of-27 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengals' Week 3 loss to the Packers.
Under new OC Bill Lazor, it was pretty evident that the plan was to get the ball out of Dalton's hand quickly as a way to mask a terrible offensive line. The plan worked early, with the Bengals taking a 21-7 lead into halftime, but they were unable to find the end zone after the break and lost in overtime. Dalton's first touchdown was a 10-yard strike to A.J. Green, and the second was a wide-open quick-hitter to Giovani Bernard who walked into the end zone. Dalton will be in the QB2 mix next week at the Browns.
