Andy Dalton is coming off what was the best training camp of his 4-year NFL career, and it's shown on the field. After a solid Week 1 performance vs. the Chiefs, Dalton shredded the Jets defense Saturday night, despite being down a pair of starters in Tyler Eifert and Marvin Jones.

I thought we came out (and) moved the ball well. We hit some big plays and that’s what we want to do. The game plan coming in was to take a couple shots and we hit a couple big ones."

"I think we’ve got a good system in (place). Guys understand where they need to be, I know where they’re going to be, and the biggest thing is efficiency. We’ve done well throughout these first couple games, so we’ve just got to keep it going."

With several of his top offensive weapons out, Dalton hooked up with Mohamed Sanu for a 43-yard score, and he's pleased with how the third-year receiver has progressed.

"Mo’s done a great job. It’s unfortunate Marvin’s out, but Mo has stepped up and played really well. I’ve got a lot of confidence in him, and everybody knows what A.J. (Green) can do, but having another guy like that that’s coming up and making big plays is exactly what we need."
