Bengals QB Andy Dalton nominated for two weekly awards

Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton is being recognized with two nominations this week.

The legend of Andy Dalton continues to grow.

The NFL announced on Tuesday that Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has been nominated for two (not one) weekly awards for his performance against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Dalton was one of three quarterbacks nominated for the FedEx Air Player of the Week, which is a weekly vote that honors the best passers during a given week. Dalton, who threw three touchdown passes and 337 yards passing in Buffalo, is joined by Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton. Alright, it's not the who's who of quarterbacks, but deserved of recognition regardless.

Newton recorded three touchdowns and completed 20 passes for 242 yards during Carolina's win over the Minnesota Vikings. Foles threw for 296 yards and three touchdowns during Philadelphia's win over the Eagles.

The other award that Dalton is being nominated, which should be considered a team effort, is the GNC Never Say Never award for the team beating Buffalo in overtime. Joining him are Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton ended a two-game touchdown drought, throwing for three touchdowns as the Bengals earned a 27-24 overtime road win against the Buffalo Bills. The Bills rallied in the fourth quarter after being down 24-14 entering the period. After the Bengals' opening drive in overtime didn't result in a score, Kevin Huber's punt pinned the Bills deep in their own territory. A three and out set up the Bengals nicely for Mike Nugent's 43-yard game-winning field goal.

This is the second time that Cincinnati has been nominated for the award, joining Terence Newman's fumble return for a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers.
