Andy Dalton hits A.J. Green for score vs. Saints (VIDEO)

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

If there was a "Bounce Back Player of the Week" award, Any Dalton would be the runaway favorite this week.

After one of the worst performances by an NFL quarterback in recent memory, Dalton reminded everyone why he's earning $17 million this year with his performance vs. the Saints through 3.5 quarters.

It began with the 3rd-and-18 and Cincinnati backed up at their own 11-yard line after the Saints scored to cut Cincy's lead to 20-10, and it appeared momentum had swung in favor of New Orleans.

That was until Dalton dropped back and dropped a dime into the arms of A.J. Green streaking down the sideline.

That wasn't all though, as Dalton would eventually hook up with Green again for the score.


That gave the Bengals a 27-10 lead over the Saints in what was an overall great performance by Cincinnati and a great response from their week 10 debacle.
