NFL named Andy Dalton as the offensive player of the week

Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

When things are going good for Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, everything falls into place.

Not long after we announced that Andy Dalton was named the MVP against the Indianapolis Colts, the NFL announced that Dalton earned the AFC Offensive Player of the Week, for his part in Cincinnati's 42-28 win over the Indianapolis Colts. In a clash of division leaders on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, Dalton led a 42-28 win over Indianapolis with a 120.5 passer rating. He completed 24 of 35 passes (68.6 percent) for 275 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions, and he also had an eight-yard rushing TD. His TD passes went 29 yards to wide receiver Marvin Jones, one yard to tight Jermaine Gresham and nine yards to wide receiver A.J. Green.

This is Dalton's second offensive player of the week award (win over the Buffalo Bills) to go along with his player of the month award in October. He is only the second Bengals player in franchise history to earn three weekly and/or monthly league awards in a season -- safety David Fulcher did it in 1989 (two weekly and one monthly).

As a team, the Bengals this season have won six weekly or monthly league awards, just one short of the franchise-record seven achieved last season. In addition to Dalton’s three awards, other winners this season include punter Kevin Huber (Special Teams for Week 13 at San Diego), linebacker Vontaze Burfict (Defense for Week 11 vs. Cleveland) and wide receiver Marvin Jones (Offense for Week 8 vs. N.Y. Jets). With three games remaining, the Bengals are one short of the franchise-record seven weekly or monthly awards earned last season.
