Dalton’s fumbles cause problems for the Bengals

Heading into Thursday night, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton had two fumbles this season. In the second quarter on Thursday night, Dalton had two more.

Those two fumbles, both in Bengals territory, led to two Eagles field goals, and Philadelphia came back from a 10-0 deficit to lead 13-10 at halftime.

Dalton’s fumbles both came when he was hit just as he was passing, and the ball came out just before his arm moved forward. On both plays, Dalton needed to get the ball out a split second faster when the pocket started to collapse.

Other than one long pass from Nick Foles to Jeremy Maclin when the Bengals’ coverage broke down, Philadelphia hasn’t done much of anything offensively. But Dalton hasn’t done much either, and after he handed the Eagles two field goals in the second quarter, that was enough for a halftime lead.

    Cheap shot by the Bengals on Foles similar to the Lamar Houston one on Dalton. I thought only dirty Raiders players did that? Right Bengals fans?

    Eagles have the worst red zone play calling I have EVER seen

    The Eagles lost their starting O-line minus Mathis. Without injuries and turnovers (not all but maybe half) and this is an 11 win team.

    This is the ugliest game I’ve seen this year. Decent execution is nowhere to be found on either team.

    This game got outta hand quick in the 3rd and fourth. The Eagles had four turnovers in 5 plays. That is awful

    Dunlap didn’t hear the whistle. He’s far from a dirty player. Keep digging.

    I didn’t know you knew him personally so that you could provide such great insider information. Sure looked like the other 21 players heard it , but I’m glad you spoke to him for me to clear this up.

    As a bengals fan, it was a cheap shot and that’s why the reffed called it. Difference was they never threw the flag in the oakland game for it.
