Dalton’s Performance vs Giants Earns Him AFC Offensive POTW Award

Cincinnati Bengals’ QB Andy Dalton has been named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for his Week 10 performance against the Giants. Basically unfettered by the Giants’ pass rush, Dalton had one of his best days as a pro.

Dalton completed 21 of 30 passes (70 percent) for 199 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions for a 127.6 passer rating in the Bengals’ 31-13 win over the Giants.

He connected with four different Bengals receivers on his TD passes – 56 yards to WR A.J. Green, 11 yards to WR Andrew Hawkins, 10 yards to TE Jermaine Gresham and 10 yards to rookie WR Mohamed Sanu.

Dalton’s four touchdown passes were the most in the NFL in Week 10.

His 127.6 passer rating ranked second in the NFL and first in the AFC in Week 10.

Helped the Bengals improve their record to 6-0 all-time at home against the Giants.

In his second season from Texas Christian, this is Dalton’s first Player of the Week Award. He is the first Bengal to win Offensive Player of the Week honors since Carson Palmer in 2009 (Week 7).
