The Bengals have been very tolerant of Andy Dalton’s regression as a starting quarterback. After the worst week of Dalton’s NFL career, Marvin Lewis needs to reconsider his no-benching stance and turn to AJ McCarron �� for the sake of his team and coaching tenure.
The numbers show that Dalton was better in Thursday night’s 13-9 loss to Houston than he was in Sunday’s 20-0 loss to Baltimore when he threw four interceptions, completed only 51.6 percent of his passes and rated a microscopic 28.4 as a passer.
But his final line against the Texans (20 of 35, 224 yards, no INTs, 76.4 rating) looked a lot better than it really was. All it required was a string of competent throws for Dalton to “outduel” rookie first-time starter Deshaun Watson. Instead, Cincinnati is now 0-2 at home and has failed to score a touchdown for its paying fans.
Normally when teams face salary cap hell the way the Saints have, they make a major concession in one season and get their books in order so they can compete in the future. For the Saints, this should have been strongly considered in 2015 and certainly done in 2016, but they have yet to do it.
Instead of taking the pain for a year, the Saints have continued to sign any players they can regardless of fit or impact on the cap, hoping something would stick. Spend as much as possible, tomorrow be damned.

A cross-section of national and international figures from inside and outside the athletic world joined to publicly support the Seahawks’ Michael Bennett on Wednesday, for his protests against racial injustice and in his conflicts with the Las Vegas police after he described his brutal treatment by them last month.
One of those who coordinated the statement said Bennett greatly appreciated the embrace from the list of supporters �� and badly needed to see it when he did.
He’s really excited that so many of his heroes have stepped out for him in his hour of need, Jesse Hagopian, a Seattle high school teacher, activist and close friend of and collaborator with Bennett, told Sporting News. He’s dealing with anxiety from having his life threatened by the police in Las Vegas and from their attempts to smear his reputation afterward.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford reiterated on WJR-AM Radio in Detroit on Monday that he knew the 10-second runoff rule and once he realized it was being reviewed, he knew it would be the ballgame either way. He also had no issues with the play that was called.
This is a play that is designed to get in the end zone, Stafford said. I love the call. I thought it was a great call. Nine-point-nine times out of 10 we’re getting in and scoring. It just didn’t happen for us on that play.
Stafford also said the Lions practice getting final plays off fast for situations like this — not reviews, but being down. He said that had the Lions gotten one more play, he thinks it would have been easiest for them to keep it in pass mode. He felt Detroit could have gotten a play off, but, you know, that’s the rule.
