The 2015 version of Andy Dalton certainly likes winning. With the Cincinnati Bengals defeating the two time defending NFC Champion Seattle dalton (1)Seahawks in overtime (27-24), they are now 5-0.

Maybe he will like winning on Super Bowl Sunday, too. The way he’s been playing has the Bengals looking like legitimate contenders. Not only his play, but his emotion too. With almost 3 ½ mintues left in Sunday’s game, Dalton showed a lot of emotion. He sprinted and dove from 5 yards out for a touchdown that gave Cincinnati sudden late life. It was the kind of play they needed as they were in the middle of rallying from a 17-point deficit against the Seahawks.

Dalton didn’t have a flawless game though; he did get intercepted in the end zone in the final minute of the first half and botched a hand-off that was returned for a Seattle defensive touchdown. But he should be remembered for his huge fourth quarter.

This will be his fifth year in the NFL and as the Cincinnati Bengals quarterback. He definitely proved to be clutch Sunday and that isn’t a word anyone would use to describe him in the first four years of his career, each of which ended with a first-round playoff loss. Before Sunday’s win, Andy Dalton became the first quarterback since Kurt Warner in 2000 to start 4-0 and average at least 10 yards per attempt. He is proving that his name could fit in with the likes of Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.
