Andy Dalton. A third down conversion machine.

With 13:15 remaining in the second quarter, Andy Dalton took the shotgun snap and surveyed the field looking to convert a third-and-seven from the Bengals 23-yard line. Donald Lee split away from the pack on a downfield route, hauls in Dalton's pass for a 33-yard gain. Again stuck with a third-and-six from Cincinnati's 49-yard line, Dalton hits Brandon Tate on a hitch route at the first down marker, converting the first down again, sustaining the drive.

Again the Bengals struggled on first and second, with an incomplete, false start and incomplete setting up a third-and-15 from midfield.

Dalton said, no prob, Bob. The franchise quarterback grabs the shotgun snap and chucks the football down the right sidelines targeting A.J. Green's vertical route. The football lands in Green's arms, while in stride, hauling in the 50-yard touchdown reception giving the Bengals a 10-3 lead.
