Andy Dalton has been an iron man for the majority of his career, yet the backup role remains a critical one, especially with the Bengals typically only liking to keep two total quarterbacks on the roster.

Somehow, the Bengals lost AJ McCarron over the offseason yet are seemingly in a better situation than before. Thanks to the following three names and their performances in practice and training camp, this is one of the top positional battles to watch]]> 5269718 Sun, 12 Aug 2018 9:33:01 EDT Bengals Wire
<![CDATA[Should the Bengals trade for a backup quarterback?]]> Andy Dalton may not be viewed as an iron man, but he’s been extremely durable since entering the league in 2011. In his seven NFL seasons, Dalton has missed only three games, and his 109 starts rank sixth among quarterbacks during that time.

Those three contests Dalton missed were pretty important, however, as they came during the stretch run of the Bengals’ 2015 playoff push. Dalton, of course, suffered a broken thumb in Week 13 of that campaign, forcing him to miss not only the tail end of the regular season, but Cincinnati’s eventual loss to the Steelers in the Wild Card round]]> 5268292 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:15:02 EDT Bengals Wire
<![CDATA[Bengals first-team offense bucks recent history with eruption vs. Bears]]> Joe Mixon led the Bengals to their first score after spinning past a defender for a gorgeous touchdown.

Quarterback Andy Dalton led the team on their second scoring drive for 75 yards. The Red Rifle capped the drive off with a 3-yard touchdown pass for the score. Surprisingly though, the scores were not the main storyline heading into the locker room]]> 5268290 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:15:02 EDT Bengals Wire
<![CDATA[John Ross' up-and-down first half vs. Bears hints at massive upside]]> John Ross began in Week 1 of the preseason against the Chicago Bears.

There, Ross did a little bit of everything — shaking defenders out of cleats, going up to make big grabs and also being involved in a gut-wrenching turnover that led to a touchdown.

All according to plan, really.

The Bengals have to take the good with the bad. Ross played most of the first half and outright fell down on a route, leading to an Andy Dalton pick-six (two of the first-team offense’s first three drives resulted in touchdowns, this was the exception)]]> 5268285 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:15:02 EDT Bengals Wire
<![CDATA[WATCH: Kyle Fuller takes interception to the house in preseason game vs. Bengals]]> Kyle Fuller is trying to replicate the success he had during his breakout 2017 season. He’s off to a good start this preseason.

In the first quarter of the Chicago Bears’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals, he picked off a pass from Andy Dalton and brought it all the way back for a touchdown.

It helped that the receiver fell down, but Fuller showed off impressive return ability with the ball in his hands, evading potential tacklers on the way to the endzone]]> 5268263 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:09:01 EDT Bears Wire
<![CDATA[Studs and Duds from Bears' 30-27 preseason loss to Bengals]]>
The Chicago Bears fell to 0-2 in the preseason after their 30-27 loss to the Bengals Thursday night.

The Bears had a chance to tie the game late in the fourth quarter, but a Cody Parkey missed field goal preserved the game for a Bengals team that had its way with Chicago’s starting defense.

After finishing last season as a top-10 unit, Vic Fangio’s defense struggled to slow Andy Dalton and the rest of Cincinnati’s playmakers. The Bears’ starting offense did little to respond, as Mitch Trubisky was under constant pressure in the couple of series that he played]]> 5268261 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:09:01 EDT Bears Wire
<![CDATA[Leonard Floyd flashes pass-rushing upside in preseason debut]]> Leonard Floyd took the field Thursday night for the first time since injuring his knee in Week 11 last year and made his presence felt as a pass rusher early in the game against the Bengals.

Floyd was a critical factor in Kyle Fuller’s interception of Andy Dalton in the first quarter; Fuller returned the pick for a touchdown. Floyd pressured Dalton into the ill-advised throw and showed just how important a good pass rush will be for turnover opportunities this season.

“I felt good. I’m looking forward to the next game already,” Floyd said via the Chicago Sun-Times]]> 5268259 Fri, 10 Aug 2018 16:09:01 EDT Bears Wire
