Dalton was replaced as Bengals QB by AJ McCarron, who threw a gorgeous 66-yard touchdown to AJ Green for the first TD pass of his NFL career.
No Andy Dalton. No problem.

While losing Dalton is obviously a huge blow for the Bengals, if McCarron can keep playing like this, maybe Cincinnati won’t be in such dire shape going forward.
