Dalton completed 18 of 28 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-10 win over Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton found tight end C. J. Uzomah from one yard out on the final play of the first quarter for his 18th touchdown of the season, but still ended up finishing with one fewer score than his 2014 career-low of 19. On the bright side, the 29-year-old threw just eight interceptions, giving him consecutive campaigns with single-digit picks after four straight seasons with at least 13. Dalton's numbers were depressed due to the extended absence of top wide receiver A.J. Green (hamstring), but he still managed the second-best yardage total of his career at 4,206.

Dalton completed 28 of 41 passes for 268 yards, one touchdown and one pick in Saturday's loss to the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

If not for Brandon LaFell's 86-yard catch-and-run, Dalton's stat line would have looked miserable. It's been a tough 2016 for Dalton, with his former offensive coordinator heading to Cleveland, tight end Tyler Eifert out for a chunk of the season and star receiver and pass-catching back A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard out in recent weeks. The result has been a season in which Dalton has yet to throw for more than two touchdowns in a game, after four such games in 13 outings last season. With eyes now on 2017, it will be interesting to see whether Dalton is able to regain the swagger he boasted for much of last season and even early on in 2016.

Dalton completed 16 of 27 passes for 157 yards and one interception during Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Steelers. He also tacked on a one-yard touchdown run.

EDGE Analysis

Entering the weekend on the heels of back-to-back victories, the Bengals were poised to play spoiler to the Steelers' postseason hopes. Indeed, Dalton led four consecutive scoring drives to begin the game, including his own one-yard scoring plunge as the clock hit zero at the end of the first quarter. In total, the four possessions pushed the deficit to 20-6 with 2:51 remaining before halftime, but Ben Roethlisberger directed another field-goal drive to cut the lead to 11 by the mid-game break. The Steelers continued to chip away with a trio of field goals, while Dalton and company responded with no points and 28 yards of offense on three ensuing drives. With the defeat, Cincinnati has officially missed the playoffs for the first time in Dalton's career, but he'll look to go out on a high note with matchups at Houston and against the Ravens remaining on the ledger.

Dalton completed 20 of 28 passes for 180 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 23-10 victory over the Browns. He also rushed twice for 17 yards.

EDGE Analysis

It wasn't a huge day for Dalton in terms of passing yards -- it was actually his lowest total of the season -- but he was able to hook up with Tyler Eifert for two red-zone touchdowns, and that was enough to put away the Browns. In his last three games, Dalton has thrown five touchdowns without an interception, and that has resulted in two wins, even without A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard. Dalton will look to continue his strong play of late against the Steelers in Week 15.

Dalton completed 23 of 31 passes for 332 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's game against the Eagles. He added nine yards on two rushes in the 32-14 win.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton completed an impressive 74 percent of his passes at 10.7 yards per attempt while connecting with Tyler Eifert and Brandon LaFell for a pair of red zone scores. It was the Red Rifle's second game of the season with over 300 passing yards and touchdowns with no interceptions, and he seems to be coping without A.J. Green (hamstring) or Gio Bernard (knee) at his disposal. Dalton's terrific performance helped end a four-game winless streak for the Bengals, who will look to build off this performance against the hapless Browns next week.

Dalton completed 26 of 48 passes for 283 yards and a touchdown Sunday in Baltimore. He also rushed three times for 14 yards and lost two of four fumbles in the 19-14 loss.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton attempted to overcome the absence of top wideout A.J. Green (hamstring) by spreading the ball around. Quantity didn't make up for quality, though, as he led just one touchdown drive despite connecting at least three times with five different receivers. It looks like the Bengals will continue to rely heavily on the passing game, though the Red Rocket's effectiveness will likely be limited until he's reunited with his top target.

Dalton (right shoulder) returned to a full practice Thursday, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton is good to go for Sunday's game against the Ravens, but his pass-catching corps in Week 12 will be taxed by the absence of No. 1 wideout A.J. Green (hamstring), as well as RB Giovani Bernard (knee, IR).

Dalton (right shoulder) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton is not in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Ravens, but his pass-catching corps will be taxed by the absence of top wideout A.J. Green (hamstring) and RB Giovani Bernard (knee, IR). Meanwhile veteran WR Brandon LaFell sat out practice Wednesday.

Dalton completed 24 of 43 passes for 207 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions Sunday against the Bills. He also rushed four times for 10 yards and a touchdown in a 16-12 defeat.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton took matters into his own hands by the goal line in the first quarter, running in from two yards out for his third rushing score of the season. He struggled after that, though, throwing for under 250 yards for just the third time this season and second game in a row. Dalton's struggles had a lot to do with the early exit of top receiver A.J. Green (hamstring), who could be out for the season. The Red Rocket's stock would take a major hit the rest of the way if that's the case.

Dalton (right shoulder) practiced fully Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton's limitations at practice Wednesday afforded him a bit of a breather following a Monday night game, but he'll be good to go Sunday against the Bills. To date, Dalton has carved out a 10:4 TD:INT ratio through nine games, while averaging 283.7 yards per game in the air, a figure that ranks him ninth in the league.
