Dalton completed 15 of 25 passes for 154 yards and three touchdowns Sunday against the Broncos. He also gained four yards on three carries int he 20-17 win.

EDGE Analysis

Though he averaged just 6.2 yards per attempt, Dalton connected on touchdown passes with three different receivers and went without an interception for the fourth straight game. His team deferred to the run after building a lead, suppressing his number of attempts and accompanying yardage. Nonetheless, Dalton's 9:2 TD:INT over the last five games makes him a viable option in Week 12 against the Browns.

Dalton completed 20 of 35 passes for 265 yards and two touchdowns while losing two fumbles in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Titans.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton connected with Brandon LaFell for a 37-yard score in the first quarter and added a 70-yard touchdown to A.J. Green in the fourth. The latter touchdown gave Cincinnati a 20-17 lead with 5:03 to play, but Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota was able to orchestrate a late touchdown drive of his own to win the game for the hosts. Dalton's two first-half fumbles were both costly, as the first one led to a Tennessee touchdown and the second came on 1st-and-goal from the nine-yard line.

Dalton completed 10 of 18 passes for 136 yards in Sunday's 23-7 loss to the Jaguars.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton came up against a vaunted Jaguars pass defense and lost his go-to target, A.J. Green, to ejection in the second quarter. The ejection put Dalton in a bind as he has relied on Green for 35.6 percent of his passing yards this season. Assuming Green is back next week, Dalton is a decent play against a middle-of-the-road Titans pass defense. He's still managed to throw multiple touchdown passes in four of six games coordinated by Bill Lazor.

Dalton completed 17 of 29 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns, adding 10 yards on the ground, in Sunday's 24-23 win over the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton put the Bengals back up by four midway through the third quarter when he took a shot to the chops, but still managed to float the ball into the end zone for a 25-yard strike to Josh Malone. Dalton started the season off ugly, with no touchdowns and four picks in his first two games. He has since thrown multiple touchdown passes in four of five games. This might not be the time to buy on Dalton, however, as he's coming up on a tough stretch. Four of the Bengals' next five opponents rank in the top 10 in the league in pass defense.

Dalton completed 17 of 30 passes for 140 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions during Sunday's 29-14 loss to the Steelers. He also rushed three times for eight yards.

EDGE Analysis

Hamstrung by one of the worst offensive lines in the league, Dalton was at the mercy of the Steelers' strong pass rush that applied heavy pressure all game long and totaled four sacks before the final whistle. Neither of his interceptions was completely his fault, though -- since both were tipped and fell into the hands of defenders -- but this still marks Dalton's most ineffective game since Bill Lazor took over as offensive coordinator in Week 3. The fact the Bengals tallied only one first down in the second half shows just how stagnant the offensive unit was after Pittsburgh made some adjustments at halftime. Fortunately, Dalton has a fantastic opportunity to rebound in Week 8 when the Bengals host a Colts team that's surrendered the third-most passing yards per game through Week 7.

Dalton (ankle) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, Cincinnati's bye week gave Dalton plenty of time to recover from the minor ankle injury he suffered in a 20-16 win over the Bills in Week 5. Per

Terrell, Dalton said he's pain-free as the Bengals prepare for Sunday's game in Pittsburgh.

Dalton downplayed a potential ankle injury after Sunday's 20-16 win over the Bills, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton didn't miss any snaps and threw for a season-high 328 yards, but A.J. Green said after the game that he knew his quarterback battled through some pain. Dalton also tossed a couple of interceptions, both of which hit Green in the hands before caroming to defenders. Dalton should have plenty of time to recover from the seemingly minor ankle injury as Cincinnati heads into a Week 6 bye. The Bengals then travel to Pittsburgh in Week 7.

Dalton completed 22 of 36 passes for 328 yards one touchdown, and two picks in Sunday's 20-16 win over Buffalo. He added two yards on the ground.

EDGE Analysis

The biggest chunk of Dalton's success came early on Sunday with a 77-yard bomb down the right sideline for an A.J. Green touchdown. After struggling early in the season, Dalton has been airing it out with gusto under new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor, averaging at least 7.85 yards per attempt in all three games after reaching that total just six times in 18 starts under Ken Zampese. The switch at coordinator has also led to Dalton getting the ball into the endzone more with seven touchdowns in the last three weeks versus none in the first two games of the season. Dalton was picked twice against Buffalo's stingy defense and turnovers will be worth monitoring, but it looks like Cincinnati is righting the ship.

Dalton completed 25 of 30 passes for 286 yards and four touchdowns Sunday against the Browns. He also carried four times for 29 yards and lost a fumble in the 31-7 win.

EDGE Analysis

Dalton enjoyed easily his best game of the season in this one, completing passes to nine different receivers, including three touchdowns in the second quarter to build a big lead. He also finished as the team's top rusher, with the team's crowded running back corps failing to generate much on the ground. Dalton endured a miserable start to the season, but he has since bounced back with six touchdowns compared to just one turnover in the last two weeks. He will look to build off of this breakout next week against the Bills.

Dalton completed 21 of 27 passes for 212 yards and two touchdowns during Sunday's 27-24 overtime loss to the Packers. He also rushed twice for minus-two yards.

EDGE Analysis

Even though he was ultimately out-dueled by Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, Dalton -- and the rest of the Bengals offense, for that matter -- was much more effective than he was in the first two weeks of the season. This represents just his fifth game with more than one passing touchdown since the start of 2016, though. Probably not coincidentally, two of those games came against the Browns, who Dalton gets the privilege of playing in Week 4.
