Week Six MVP: Andy Dalton wins CJ MVP against the Bills

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton won the week six CJ MVP for his performance against the Buffalo Bills.

The polls are closed. Thousands and thousands have voted. We listed five nominations for player of the game during Cincinnati's 27-24 overtime win against the Buffalo Bills.

The winner: Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton.

The third-year quarterback needed a little goodwill from the base, after taking it on the chin during a poor set of games against the Browns and Patriots. And he did what could, completing 26 of 40 passes for 337 yards passing and tossing all of Cincinnati's touchdowns to A.J. Green, Giovani Bernard and Marvin Jones. It wasn't elite, but it was good enough.

Dalton is only the second offensive player to win the award this year, following Giovani Bernard's MVP against the Pittsburgh Steelers in week two.

It was extremely close. Dalton literally beat wide receiver Marvin Lewis by one vote.
