Andy Dalton ... Fading when we need him the most?

The NFL season starts in the warmth of early September, continues in the cool autumn weekends of October and November, and draws to a grinding close in the biting cold winds of December and January.

Some players play better early in the season, but break down as the season lingers, and see their production drop off.
Others get better as the season closes, when their team needs them the most to finish off the season. Unfortunately, Andy Dalton seems to be in the latter group.

Andy’s performance by month...

September (11 games)
89.8 QB rating, 64% completions, 7.4 yards per attempt, 244 yards per game

October (12 games)
86.7 QB rating, 64% completions, 7.5 yards per attempt, 268 yards per game

November (10 games)
84.4 QB rating, 56% completions, 6.6 yards per attempt, 234 yards per game

December (9 games)
75.5 QB rating, 58% completions, 5.9 yards per attempt, 173 yards per game

January (3 games, inc playoffs)
55.1 QB rating, 54% completions, 5.3 yards per attempt, 205 yards per game

Unfortunately, Andy’s numbers show a consistent drop as the season progresses, from good, to bad, to horrible. How well does this bode for a team hoping to finish off a third straight year reaching the playoffs, and possibly fighting for an opening week bye?
