Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton doesn't believe he coul

Postby panxing18 » Thu Dec 06, 2018 10:59 pm

d have scripted a better visit to Buffalo on Sunday.The donation he made to Buffalo's Roswell Park Cancer Institute to open the day was special. The two standing ovations he received from Bills fans before the preseason game were chilling.And Dalton was able to keep his emotions in check on the first snap from scrimmage to hit John Ross for a 57-yard touchdown pass in leading the Bengals to a 26-13 victory."It was a good day. I think the way it started was the best part White Jerry Hughes Jersey ," Dalton said. "The game went well, too."The Bills could not say the same about their offense, and a three-way quarterback competition that remains unsettled.Rookie Josh Allen struggled in his first preseason start , while getting little protection from an offensive line that allowed five sacks in the first half alone. He finished 6 of 12 and was sacked for more yards (39) than he had passing (34)."I didn't do a good enough job getting the ball out on time," the first-round pick said. "I've got to do a better job, but there's a lot to learn from."Dalton eased whatever concerns the starters raised with their sputters in last week's 21-13 win at Dallas by producing three scoring drives — two touchdowns and a field goal — over five series against the Bills.Dalton finished 11 of 16 for 180 yards and two touchdowns — including a 14-yarder to A.J. Green — to celebrate the warm reception he received in Buffalo nine months after playing a key role in the Bills making the playoffs and ending a 17-year playoff drought.It happened in the final minute of the season finale against Baltimore on New Year's Eve. Dalton's 49-yard touchdown pass on fourth down to Tyler Boyd sent the Bengals to a 31-27 win, and eliminated the Ravens from playoff contention.Bills fans responded immediately by making over $450,000 to Dalton's charitable foundation."It's a crazy story, and it's been fun to be on this side of it http://www.authenticsbuffalobills.com/cheap-rafael-bush-jersey ," Dalton said. "The best part is all the money that was raised."Buffalo's offense continues to raise concerns two weeks before opening the regular season at Baltimore.Allen generated just three first downs before being forced out of the game in the final minute of the first half. He was escorted off the field to be evaluated for a possible concussion after being tackled by Carlos Dunlap in the end zone.Though Allen was cleared to return, he stayed on the sideline while Nathan Peterman finished the game.This was a week after the starters went three-and-out in four series and starter AJ McCarron was sacked once and hit several other times before being sidelined with an injury to his right throwing shoulder in a 19-17 win at Cleveland."It's disappointing," Bills coach Sean McDermott said. "We're going to make sure we're helping him with protection and catching the football and not beating ourselves with penalties. Let's just start there."SACK ATTACKLinebacker Carl Lawson had 2 1/2 of the Bengals five sacks in the first half, and nearly had an interception. He was in position to pick off Allen's underthrown pass up the right sideline only to have tight end Charles Clay break it up.PETERMAN TIMEThe Bengals led 23-0 before the Bills mounted a comeback with two scores late in the third quarter.Peterman hit Jason Croom for a 17-yard touchdown, and then Travaris Cadet scored on a 1-yard run on a drive set up by Rafael Bush intercepting Bengals backup Matt Barkley's pass. Peterman finished 16 of 21 for 200 yards, and upped his preseason total to 33 of 41 for 432 yards with three touchdowns and an interception.WELCOME BACKBengals tight end Tyler Eifert had one catch for 11 yards while targeted three times in making his preseason debut. The Bengals' 2013 first-round draft pick is coming off back surgery and was limited to playing just two games last year.INJURIESBengals: Left tackle Cordy Glenn stood on the sideline, but did not return after hurting his right shoulder in the first quarter. Coach Marvin Lewis said Glenn was fine. Guard Christian Westerman (back) and running back Jarveon Williams (left knee) did not return.Bills: Backup linebacker Julian Stanford did not return after hurting his nose in the first half. RB LeSean McCoy (hip/groin) and left tackle Dion Dawkins (hip) did not play after being injured in practice this week.ANTHEM UPDATEThe Bengals stood together along the sideline except for Dunlap, who stood on the field at the 45 with his hand on his chest. No member of the Bills appeared to protest.UP NEXTBengals: Host Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night.Bills: At Chicago Bears on Thursday night. The ACC witnessed an explosion of offense this week in college football, so it seemed only fitting that any recap should feature players involved in those inter-conference games http://www.authenticsbuffalobills.com/cheap-ryan-groy-jersey , but the real offensive MVP, who rushed for over 200 yards, hails from the PAC-12. Not to be forgotten, the defenders this week are all middle-round prospects looking to make a rise up the board this season. More about each 2019 draft prospect below. RB Zack Moss (Utah)The Utes were determined to pound the rock against UCLA and Moss was their battering ram, so much so that he ended the day with 211 yards on 26 runs. As always, the 215-pound junior proved difficult to bring down, but he also managed to show off some long speed on one particular 60-yard scamper which is important for his evaluation. Also important was the fact that he caught two passes for 14 yards and held up in pass protection.C Garrett Bradbury (NC State)Syracuse and NC State had an old-fashioned shootout, thanks to some great protection provided by the offensive line for both teams. For the Wolfpack, that protection was provided by Bradbury. The center was extremely light on his feet http://www.authenticsbuffalobills.com/cheap-corey-bojorquez-jersey , which led to a couple nice runs, but allowed him to shine in his pass sets. His movement skills helped on run fakes, allowing him to pretend like he was run blocking, and then immediately shifting to a pass protection set.WR Sean Riley (Syracuse)The diminutive slot receiver for the Orange didn’t just go toe-to-toe with the NC State defensive backs, with his 164 yards he also managed to keep up with the Wolfpack’s Kelvin Harmon who had a monster day on the other side of the field. Defensively, NC State had no answer for Riley as he was too quick for linebackers and safeties and too polished a route-runner for slot corners. Several of his catches came on third downs, keeping drives alive and eventually leading to an upset. ER Ben Banogu (TCU)TCU usually chose to only rush three players on third downs against Kansas, but the senior still managed to get to the quarterback twice for sacks. Where Banogu really stood out though was in holding the edge in run defense, finishing the day with 4.5 tackles for loss. If Banogu can continue to stack productive weeks like this http://www.authenticsbuffalobills.com/cheap-star-lotulelei-jersey , he could go from being considered late rounder to more of a mid-round consideration.LB Ryan Connelly (Wisconsin)The day began well for Connelly and the Wisconsin defense as a whole against Northwestern. Connelly made an very athletic play to tip a pass which ended up as an interception for the Badgers. Unfortunately, Wisconsin’s offense was no help and the defense eventually collapsed as well. No one should blame Connelly though, who found himself chasing running backs all day while leading his team in tackles with fourteen.Your browser does not support HTML5 video.CB Bryce Hall (Virginia)Hall can be labeled as a “draft riser” this year and that rise continued against UNC. The junior leads the nation in pass break ups, and had two against UNC, because he know how to position get his hands into the chest of the receiver and force an incompletion at the very last minute. The few times he does allow a catch, Hall uses his long arms to quickly wrap up and limit any yards after the catch. He also threw in a johnny-on-the-spot fumble recovery against the Tarheels.
