The first half of Thursday night's game did not go well for Andy Dalton at all. Fortunately for the Bengals, he stepped up his game in the third and fourth quarters and finished 13 of 27 passing for 127 yards and two total touchdowns.
Dalton managed an 11-yard rushing score on a broken play to give Cincinnati the lead in the second half.
Fantasy Impact: Well, it wasn't exactly the game his owners were expecting, but at least Dalton scored twice in the second half. He headed into the locker room with just 76 yards, so it could have been much worse.
Next week, he takes on the Steelers stingy defense. He last game against Pittsburgh was forgettable to say the least. You might want to find another option if you're still in the playoffs come Week 16.
