To no surprise, Andy Dalton is up for a national award after his performance in the Bengals' 28-24 win over the Ravens in Week 3. Dalton has been nominated for the FedEx Air Player of the Week award, and you can vote for him to win it here.

Dalton was decent for the first three quarters, but his fourth-quarter passing clinic helped pace Cincinnati past Baltimore in a game where the lead changed four times in the final period.

Dalton finished the game completing 20 of his 32 passes for a career-high 383 yards to go with three passing scores and one rushing score. He's now completed 61 of 92 attempts (66.3%)  this year for 866 yards, eight scores and one interception. That puts him on pace to for 4,619 yards and 43 scores this season, per ESPN.

When the winner of this award is announced, FedEx will make a $2,000 donation to the American Red Cross in the name of the winning player.
