Dalton vs. Palmer ... their first 43 games

Like everybody else on Thanksgiving morning, I was wondering how Carson Palmer's first 43 games compared with Andy Daltons'. Dalton has played 43 games, thus the 43.

Carson Palmer

891 for 1383 ... 64.4% ... 10,308 ... 74 td's ... 41 int's

25 - 18 (wins - losses)

Andy Dalton

881 for 1454 ... 60.6% ... 10,021 ... 68 td's ... 44 int's

26 - 17 (wins - losses)

What surprised me the most was how close their numbers are.

Palmer had a better completion %, slightly more yards, slightly more td's and fewer int's.

Dalton had a very slight win to loss record.

Of course, Palmer had the benefit of sitting behind Kitna for a year, while Dalton was thrown right into the starting lineup without the benefit of a year to sit, and didn't even have the benefit of a full preseason.

Also, both had a great WR (Chad & AJ) and a good second receiver (TJ & Jermaine) to throw the ball to.
