Dalton's Time to Shine

For Bengals fans, it seems a mere distant memory when Palmer and co. swept their AFC North foes en route to a 2009 division title. A lot has changed since then and although most would argue for the better, this 2012 squad has seen its fair share of ups and downs. In order for the Cats to make the playoffs for the second consecutive season (a feat that hasn't occurred since 1981-82), they need to do something that they haven't done since youngster Andy Dalton took the reins in 2011: beat the rival Pittsburgh Steelers. Same dance partners, different tune. This time the ball is in Cincinnati's court. They control their destiny: win and they're in. Taking one from the Steelers at Heinz Field won't be easy, but this team seems to thrive on the road (5-2 record away from PBS). This is Dalton's "statement game". If he plays the QB position at the level Who Dey Nation feels he's capable of on Sunday, the Jungle can start printing those playoff tickets.
