    News

    The Bengals have elevated rookie quarterback Ryan Finley to the starting lineup over Dalton, Geoff Hobson of the team's official site reports.

    Impact

    The Zac Taylor era includes no wins through eight games, so it's no surprise that the rookie coach decided to make a change under center. In the first half of the season, Dalton averaged a whopping 42.3 passes per game to compensate for a dismal rushing attack, but 6.7 yards per attempt and a 9:8 TD:INT later, he's handing the No. 1 job to Finley, a 2019 fourth-round pick.

    News

    Dalton is expected to be benched in favor of Ryan Finley after the Bengals' Week 9 bye, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    Impact

    Dalton easily was on pace for his most passes in a single season, averaging 42.3 per game at the midpoint. However, he was averaging just 6.7 yards per attempt and had nine touchdowns versus eight interceptions while going winless in eight starts. Dalton will yield to Finley, a 2019 fourth-round pick, as first-year coach Zac Taylor looks to breath new life into the Bengals offense.

    News

    Dalton completed 32 of 52 passes for 329 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 24-10 loss to the Rams.

    Impact

    With the Bengals down by two scores and chasing points midway through the fourth quarter, Dalton stood in pocket at delivered an 18-yard strike to Tyler Boyd for a fourth-and-long conversion. The Bengals ended up turning the ball over on downs anyhow. That kind of encapsulates as season in which little has gone right for Dalton and the winless Bengals. Dalton has more games with multiple turnovers (four) than multiple touchdown passes (three) and, though he's been a solid option on the ground with three touchdowns, he just hasn't been able to overcome life without A.J. Green (ankle). Next up after the bye is a Ravens team that held Dalton to 237 total yards, a rushing touchdown, and a pick in Week 6.
